Trump has been calling Ted Cruz a fraud all morning, suggesting he illegally stole the election via the Ben Carson mix up. You can read about that here.
Now Trump is calling for a new election in Iowa, based on the same premise:
Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified.

How ridiculous is this? I honestly don’t think Trump is serious about a new election. Rather he just wants something else to make an issue out of, to keep attacking Ted Cruz to try and hurt him in the next primary states. And of course his most ardent followers will be repeating this stupid attack everywhere. And the media will make a huge issue out of it like they always do with his idiotic attacks.
So Trump woke up and realized he wasn't in the headlines. Here's the media's new assignment for the day.

We’ve seen over and over again that Trump fights dirty. I’ve been calling him ‘The Desperate Donald’ and while I really do think he is desperate, especially after his loss in Iowa, I also think he’s just this nasty. It’s like his default position. He’s a nasty guy and if he wins we will have four years of nasty attacks like this leveled against anyone and everyone who doesn’t kiss his ring.
