Donald Trump has had a horrific week. It’s been so bad that the Donald is now getting booed when he tries to criticize Sen. Ted Cruz. NBC News reports that at a rally in Myrtle Beach, SC, Trump was booed when he attempted to attack Cruz:
According to the NBC report, Trump drew boos for his attack on Cruz‘s previously undisclosed loans:
“You give a campaign contribution to Ted Cruz, you get whatever the hell you want,” he said, before boos erupted from the crowd.
Trump went on as the boos grew louder: “Say whatever you want, it’s okay, he didn’t report his bank loans. He’s got bank loans from Goldman Sachs, he’s got bank loans from Citibank, folks, and then he acts like Robin Hood?”
Trump’s terrible week began with the shellacking Cruz gave the Donald over Trump’s descent into birtherism.
It continued with Cruz criticizing Trump for his New York values. The values attack was especially priceless because after Democrats complained bitterly about what the perceived as a Cruz faux pas, Cruz made his fabulous apology to New Yorkers. Then Cruz released an interview Tim Russert did with Trump on Meet the Press during which Trump makes Cruz’ point by asserting that New York “views” and “attitudes” are different than other places in the country, such as Iowa. That’s right, the New York values Cruz complained about were highlighted Trump:
“I live in New York City. There is a tremendous movement on to have and allow gay marriage.”“Hey, I lived in New York City and Manhattan all my life so my views are a little bit different than if I lived in Iowa, perhaps, but [gays openly serving in the military] is not something that would disturb me.”“I’m very pro choice. And again it may be a little bit of a New York background because there is some different having attitude in different parts of the country and you know I was raised in New York, grew up and work and everything else in New York City.”But you would not ban partial-birth abortion?“No.”
