Within the last nine months, Donald Trump has mocked a disabled reporter for his disability, suggested that Megyn Kelly was on her period during the course of a debate, made fun of Carly Fiorina's looks, and called the entirety of the Republican leadership "stupid" more times than I can count. Now he is bashing Ted Cruz for - I kid you not - having bad manners with an esteemed member of the Republican Establishment:
“Ted has got a rough temperament, you can’t call people liars on the Senate floor when they are your leaders. Not a good thing to do if you want to curry favor and get the positive votes later on own,” Trump said.
“Ted is worried about his temperament, people are talking about his temperament. I haven’t talked about his temperament but he’s got to be careful because his temperament has been questioned a lot.”
This follows Trump's decision earlier today to quote the "highly respected" crony capitalist repeat tax hiker Terry Branstad in making an attack on Cruz.
If you're keeping score at home, that's four times in the last three days he's invoked the most notorious genuine establishment figures in the Republican party to attack Cruz.
Anyway, don't worry Trump fans, I'm sure he will really stick it to the Establishment and tell it like it is once he's elected, and will not at all just increase government spending willy nilly as long as the spending lines the pockets of his companies.
