Trump Can’t Help Himself

Filed in National by on July 22, 2016

Trump goes after Cruz because… well… we knew he would.

Via TPM (go read the whole thing!):

“Somebody got booed the hell out of a place by thousands and thousands of people,” Trump said. “There wasn’t one person in the room — not one. And then they said there may not be unity. Unity? There wasn’t one person in the room, including the Texas delegation, right? Honestly, he may have ruined his political career. I feel so badly. I feel so badly.”

As bad as he claimed to feel, Trump made it clear he does not need Cruz on his side to win the presidency.

“You know, he’ll come and endorse over the next little while,” he said. “He’ll — because he has no choice. But I don’t want his endorsement. What difference does it make? And I don’t want his endorsement. I have such great — I don’t want his endorsement. Just — Ted, stay home, relax, enjoy yourself.”

“Again, I don’t want his endorsement,” he said. “If he gives it, I will not accept it. Just so you understand. If he gives it — I will not accept it.”

Oh my. Trump spits on a Cruz endorsement – but not white supremacists.  He even goes back to the claim about Cruz’s father being involved with JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. Aaaand he keeps going:

“I think Heidi Cruz is a great person. I think it’s the best thing he’s got going and his kids if you want to know the truth,” Trump said. “In a certain way, although he’s got good intellect but he doesn’t know how to use it. And he was a good debater but he didn’t go well in the debate against me. According to every poll. I mean, every poll, this great debater except he lost in every single debate. <strong>So that takes care of the Heidi thing.</strong> Because Heidi is a terrific woman.” [emphasis mine]

Good thing he took care of the Heidi thing. I swear, Cruz knew exactly how Trump would respond and set him up. I need more popcorn!

    He has a point. What are evangelicals going to do, stay home? For the most part, the “Christianity” of these frauds is nothing but haphazardly wallpapered over racism.

    Cruz exposed himself to the nation as the total jerk that he is, largely known by his Senate and Housecolleagues up until now. Remember when Boehner called him Lucifer!?  Now the whole party hates him for good reason . Stick a fork in him–hes done!

    Then again, this is a campaign that badly needs a convention bounce and today’s news cycle is still on Ted Cruz. Stupid, really.

    Hahahaha! No one is ever done in the Republican party. Trump proves that weekly.

    This is what you get when there are literally no standards. Cruz is going to be just fine. I can’t remember who tweeted it, but someone made the point that after Trump loses, everyone in that hall will say that they were cheering fro Cruz. And no one will call THEM on it either.

    We have a very flawed candidate Liberlgeek so don’t count Trump out…

    Tom, you are very right. I’m on an all union job (marcus hook refinery), and the topic today was how good trump’s speech was. There is a ridiculous amount of people saying how they have never voted for a republican but are going to vote for trump. His “america first” message is hitting home to a lot of the blue collar union workers. The leadership may be on board with Hillary, but I think more members will be voting for trump than not.
