No, Donald Trump didn’t say this, even though it definitely sounds like something he’d say.
I won’t put you through the agony of listening to this jerk, but here is what Peter King told a radio station in New York:
BUZZFEED – “Let me say something about the New York primary: Any New Yorker who even thinks of voting for Ted Cruz should have their head examined,” King said on the Joe Piscopo Show on AM 970 The Answer. “Really, here’s a guy who refused to sign onto the 9/11 health care act for the cops and fireman. Here’s a guy who talks about New York values.”
“New York keeps going forward,” King continued, citing the city’s response to 9/11. “We’re tough, and to have some guy like Ted Cruz with cowboy boots walk around criticizing us. Look, I hope he gets the cold shoulder and other things from every New Yorker. Send him back where he belongs. He’s a phony, and that was all off the record by the way. I don’t want anyone listening. That was all off the record.”
“I just can’t stand that guy,” he added.
“I would love to see Trump over Cruz here in New York,” added King.
Peter King is scum. He’s the worst of the worst when it comes to members of Congress. I absolutely believe that he would vote for Hillary over Ted Cruz just to keep Cruz from winning. That’s how much of an a-hole he’s become.
