Bombastic billionaire and reality TV star Donald Trump jumped the shark (again) in perhaps the biggest splash ever on Wednesday, saying that somehow Ted Cruz, who has soared into second place in all national polls and has been fighting for the U.S. Constitution his entire life, is somehow WORSE than corrupt liar Hillary Clinton, a far-left Democrat.
Trump, who has been a far-left Democrat for almost all of his 69 years, embracing liberal “New York values” like partial-birth late-term abortion, redefining the definition of the word “marriage” to include homosexuals, and the obsession with leftist media — the Democrat Media Complex, went full Saul Alinsky mode like the leftists he pretends to oppose.
Donald Trump, speaking in Iowa on Wednesday, continued his personal attacks against Cruz, void of any substantive debate on actual issues that affect American lives, saying that Ted Cruz is “worse than Hillary when you think about it.”
Trump thinks that somehow because Ted Cruz got a loan against personal assets — after putting all liquid personal assets into his 2012 senatorial campaign against a Republican establishment candidate with a personal fortune of over $200 million, he is somehow “owned” by these banks — or something.
Setting aside the fact that Trump has no doubt borrowed hundreds of millions of dollars from banks (is he owned by them?) over his career, and has bought off corrupt Democrat politicians like Anthony Weiner, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and — get this — $50,000 to corrupt leftist Rahm “Deadfish” Emanuel — in order to get him elected to be the mayor of Chicago, Trump’s accusation has got to be one of the biggest projections in the history of American politics.
Trump, who supports Bernie Sanders-style universal health care, supports bank bailouts, and as late as 2009 praised Barack Obama, continued to double-down on his failed birther conspiracy against Cruz and sleazily attempted to paint a picture of Cruz being in bed with big banks, the very big New York banks who have helped finance Trump’s fortune.
The fact is, Cruz fully disclosed his loans — for his 2012 Senate campaign on the appropriate forms. It was fully disclosed. However, on his presidential filings, due to a paperwork error, it was not entered again — but it was already disclosed. Nothing was hidden.
So Ted Cruz getting a campaign loan, that was paid back and disclosed four years ago is somehow worse than scandal-plagued progressive Democrat leftist Hillary Clinton, who has lived a life of political corruption and deception.
Donald Trump, who has contributed to the corrupt Clinton Crime Family Foundation, thinks that Cruz’s campaign loans — a regular and non-news story — is worse than Hillary Clinton denying extra security at Benghazi and allowing the murder of four brave Americans.
Trump thinks it’s worse that Cruz was born north of the border to an American citizen — no doing of his own — than Hillary’s email scandal that put American national security at risk.
One can only imagine how much dirt is buried in Donald Trump’s “dealmaking” over the years. None of it has come out yet, but it is no stretch of the imagine, considering the Democrat politicians he has bought and paid for, that he is not pure as the driven snow.
Democrats surely know this and their opposition research teams are probably waiting for the perfect time to release it.
For a “non-politician,” Donald Trump sure does have the gutter politics down pat.
