He just can’t help himself, can he?
Ted Cruz calling for voters to elect candidates who follow the U.S. Constitution, the Republican Party platform, and to “vote their conscience,” was so offensive to Donald Trump’s Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), that he’s now wishing Trump Cult mobsters would have physically “ripped him off the stage.”
Hilariously, the thin-skinned authoritarian denies, then immediately admits that his spectacle of entering the convention hall during Ted Cruz’s Republican National Convention speech on Wednesday was intended to “tweak him.”
In his first interview since the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump said he prevented Ted Cruz from being ripped off the stage by entering Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena as hundreds of angry delegates lashed out at the Texas senator.
“You know what, he’s lucky I did it,” Trump told Bloomberg Politics’ Co-Managing Editor Mark Halperin in an interview to air Sunday night on Showtime’s “The Circus.” The interview was conducted midday Friday on a flight from Cleveland to New York on one of Trump’s private planes.
“I walked in and the arena went crazy. Because there’s great unity in the Republican Party and people don’t know it.” Trump said. “Had I not walked in, I think that audience would have ripped him off the stage. I think I did him a big favor.”
When asked point blank if he entered the arena at the conclusion of Cruz’s speech on Wednesday to “tweak” his former primary rival, Trump responded: “Tweak him? I would never do a thing like that. But yes.”
He also second guessed the decision to enter, saying, “In retrospect, I wish I would have waited another minute. Because he was being booed right off the stage.”
Correction: Trump’s campaign thugs artificially manufactured the boos against Ted Cruz and he wasn’t “booed off the stage.” He stood up there like a man and finished the entire speech — a speech that promoted the constitutional conservative principles that made America the freest and most prosperous country on the planet.
Like all tyrants, Trump believes that if he tells big enough lies and repeats them frequently, people will start believing them, and he’s right. His useful idiot followers love to be lied to by him.
This is Trump’s second recent crazy rant against Ted Cruz, with the first being the morning after his acceptance speech at the convention, proving that he’s easily the sorest winner in the history of American politics.
Wow, it’s a good thing Cruz didn’t accuse Trump’s dad of killing an American president or call his wife ugly. Then, sparks would really fly!
