According to the Washington Examiner, Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign hit back at Donald Trump’s sore loser accusations that Cruz stole the Iowa caucuses.
“Reality just hit the reality star — he lost Iowa and now nobody is talking about him, so he’s popping off on Twitter,” Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said in a statement emailed to the Washington Examiner. “There are support groups for Twitter addiction, perhaps he should find his local chapter.”
Trump on Wednesday morning went on a Twitter tirade to claim that Cruz didn’t actually win the Iowa caucuses. Trump says he wants either a new election or a nullification of the Iowa results. In the meantime the rest of the campaigns have moved on to New Hampshire primary which will take place next Tuesday.
Trumps outrageous accusations stand in stark contrast to Trump’s concession speech, in which he was a little more conciliatory:
“We finished second, and I want to tell you something,” he said late Monday in Des Moines. “I’m just honored. I’m really honored. And I want to congratulate Ted, and I want to congratulate all of the incredible candidates.”
Trump then went silent on twitter for a while. All good things must come to an end.
