Uh oh it looks like el Trumpo has been reading some far right fringe blogs because now he’s bringing up doubts around Ted Cruz’s eligibility to be president!!
From the Washington Post:
Donald Trump said in an interview that rival Ted Cruz’s Canadian birthplace was a “very precarious” issue that could make the Texas senator vulnerable if he became the Republican presidential nominee.
“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic. “It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”
Trump added, “I’d hate to see something like that get in his way. But a lot of people are talking about it and I know that even some states are looking at it very strongly, the fact that he was born in Canada and he has had a double passport.”
Catherine Frazier, a spokeswoman for Cruz, declined to comment Tuesday.
But the official Ted Cruz Twitter account DID respond, and they did it hilariously:

That’s the scene that brought into our parlance the use of the term “jumping the shark” to signify that someone’s relevancy had reached it’s zenith and was in decline.
Former Cruz spokesperson Amanda Carpenter noted this flip flop on the issue:
Is Cruz right about Trump jumping the shark? Or will the Donald defeat the Cruzinator the way he has other GOP competitors?!
