Donald Trump Goes Nuclear: Let's Face It, Ted Cruz 'Is a Bit of a Maniac'

In what’s more evidence that Donald Trump is becoming completely unhinged, he is now stooping so low as to label Tea Party favorite Ted Cruz “a bit of a maniac”:

I don’t think he’s qualified to be president… I don’t think he has the right temperament. I don’t think he’s got the right judgment… You look at the way he’s dealt with the Senate, where he goes in there like a — you know, frankly like a little bit of a maniac. You’re never going to get things done that way.

He added:

Look, I built a phenomenal business. I’m worth many, many billions of dollars. I have some of the greatest assets anywhere in the world. You can’t walk into the Senate, and scream, and call people liars, and not be able to cajole and get along with people. He’ll never get anything done. And that’s the problem with Ted.

It’s rather fascinating that this is coming from the most bombastic and maniacal presidential candidate in history. Almost all of his proposals are downright outlandish, and he calls everyone who dares disagree with him “a loser” and worse. See how he smeared Dr. Ben Carson by calling him “pathological.”

What’s more, Trump’s latest jabs at Cruz prove that he has no idea what real conservatives want. Cruz promised them to stand up for their values in Washington, D.C., even if the establishment would hate him for it. That’s exactly what he’s done, and it’s one of the main reasons that he’s now so popular among evangelicals, very conservative voters, and those who identify themselves with the party.

If I were Cruz, I’d politely ask The Donald to attack me even more. After all, this will only end up helping, rather than hurting him.
