Donald Trump Calls Ted Cruz Nasty, and Threatens to Sue Him

So now the very angry and flailing Donald Trump is thinking — just thinking, mind you — of suing Ted Cruz on his eligibility to run for President.

On Saturday, in South Carolina, Trump reversed course on his statement in last week’s debate when he said he would not sue Cruz over eligibility. Now he says he won’t rule out the possibility, saying “I’ll think about it. It’s not something that I would want to do. It’s certainly something I would have standing to do. It’s not a priority. Because I’m beating him by so much, anyway, what do I have to bring a suit for?”

Eh, but some of those folks in South Carolina don’t take too kindly to Trump ripping into Ted Cruz. At a campaign event for conservative activists, Trump began slamming Cruz, and the crowd in turn loudly booed Trump.

One man in the audience, a 71-year-old Air Force veteran, began shouting and shaking his finger at Trump, whereupon Trump replied, “You know, say whatever you want, but it doesn’t work that way.”

So much for the “conservative” champion who cares so much about Americans and their beliefs.

This morning, on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, The Donald doubled down on his verbal barrage against Cruz, calling him a “very nasty guy,” in a rambling, often incoherent interview.

Seriously? This from the guy who has never hesitated to call people he doesn’t like “losers?” The Washington Post compiled this handy list of all the people who’ve received the sophomoric slams of Trump, ranging from people like conservatives Erick Erickson and Charles Krauthammer to various assorted beauty queens and the staffs of various magazines. And that’s just from August of last year.

But Ted Cruz, who has never called anyone a pejorative name, is a “very nasty guy.” Right. Pot, meet kettle.

Oh, but it’s all good. You see, Trump has compared himself to Ronald Reagan. Yes, that Ronald Reagan, Ronaldus Magnus, the greatest President of recent memory.

In an interview with Bloomberg’s With All Due Respect after the conclusion of a rally in Pensacola, Florida, last Wednesday, Trump boasted that he was building a movement bigger than that of Reagan.

“I think that the closest thing I can think of is Reagan, but I don’t think it’s the intensity that we have. Now, Reagan had a little bit of this, but I don’t think to the same extent—but he also won,” he told Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

The hubris of this man is completely unchecked. His rivals are “losers,” the man who just might beat him in the Iowa primary is “very nasty,” and he compares himself to the President who is the most revered leader among conservatives.

If this is how Donald Trump handles himself when he’s threatened by another candidate, I shudder to think of how he will act on the international stage. We’ll go from the spineless Barack Obama to the bombastic blowhard Trump. Surely we can do better — much better — than Trump.

    He’s insane!! Life to him is his little reality tv world…..this man is downright scary, worse than Obama, if that’s possible. If he even had a clue, or was looking into the Constitution, houses of Congress, the Supreme Court….but, he’s too busy insulting everyone. He’s a rabid dog!!

  • It was guaranteed that Trump would eventually show his true colors. He hates to be challenged on anything, which can get by in the sort of commercial empire he runs, but not in politics. Were he elected president, he’d find out in short order that not only can’t the president “fire” legislators, judges, state governors, or foreign primates; they have some very nasty ways of “getting their own” back.
