Both Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio pulled the gloves off on bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump at the tenth GOP Debate on Thursday evening.
Cruz effectively nailed Trump on his multi-decade record of bankrolling the establishment elite in Washington, D.C., while Rubio hammered Trump on his business record of hiring illegal aliens and foreign workers and being born with a silver spoon in his mouth, as well as failed enterprises like Trump University.
It got extremely heated — even the most loyal Democrat has to admit their debates are boring in contrast — with Rubio taking the shot that if it weren’t for Donald Trump inheriting $200 million from his father, a New York real estate developer, that his lot in life would be “selling watches in Manhattan.”
And the crowd roared.
Of course, Trump did what he always does, shout “liar” when his record is exposed, but Rubio pointed out that Trump was lying about hiring Polish illegal immigrants and being fined over $1 million in the meantime.
It was one of the best moments in a debate filled with several powerful exchanges and the first time that Trump seemed bloodied after getting continually punched by Cruz and Rubio all night.
