After Trump Threatens to Withdraw from Town Hall, Cruz Hammers

After his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, turned himself into the Jupiter Police Department following an arrest warrant for simple battery, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took to Twitter threatening to not participate in tonight’s town hall with the other two remaining GOP candidates on CNN.

Texas senator and constitutional conservative Ted Cruz , upon hearing about Trump’s current Trumpertantrum, issued a challenge of his own.

In case you missed it, here is Trump’s current Trumpertantrum.

At a rally in Brookfield, Wisconsin, Cruz challenged Trump to a debate noting that debates scare Trump because they frighten him.

Cruz noted that “it’s neck and neck. Donald Trump and I are effectively tied in the state of Wisconsin. That means … any candidate running for president owes it to come in front of the state and actually debate.

“Now our friend Donald finds debates very, very stressful,” Cruz continued. “They make his hair stand on end.”

He suggests that he and Trump combine their town hall times for a debate. Cruz said, “We’re in the same location. They got the TV cameras; they got the moderators … the one thing they’re missing is The Donald.”

He also took a moment to take a swipe at Trump’s Twitter benders adding, “Donald prefers to communicate in 140 characters or less.”

Although Trump claims his consideration to not participate is because of “unfair” and “one-sided” reporting by CNN, a laughable claim considering the fact CNN has covered Trump more than all the other GOP candidates combined, one has to wonder if Trump’s rationale is simply a cover-up to avoid answering questions about the problem with thuggery within his campaign.

Will Donald Trump show up at the town hall or will he stiff Wisconsin voters and cancel?

We shall see.
