In case you missed it, Donald Trump called principled constitutional conservative Ted Cruz a “maniac” for standing up to corrupt cronies like Mitch McConnell in the Republican establishment.
Cruz has been tactfully and hilariously rubbing Trump’s nose in his outlandish comment, taking to social media and punking the big-mouthed billionaire with light-hearted ridicule.
On Monday night, Cruz claimed to be preparing for Tuesday night’s GOP debate writing on Twitter that he was seeking out inspiration, then tweeting the video segment from the movie Tommy Boy, in which Rob Lowe is spraying Chris Farley with a water hose, while Farley sings the song, “Maniac,” a reference to Trump’s name-calling.
Ted Cruz, who has soared into second place behind the current GOP frontrunner, is obviously getting under Trump’s thin skin.
