Trump Echoes Vulgar Slur Towards Cruz, Cruz Hits Back

One of the great things about Donald Trump’s campaign is that he’s willing to say things that most politicians never will, and say them in ways that politicians never will. He also understands that that one of the top rules in deal with Social Justice Warriors is to hit them back twice as hard. That said, there are times when he goes overboard. Like this one

(Buzzfeed) Donald Trump faux-admonished and then repeated a woman who called Ted Cruz a “pussy” at a rally here on Monday night.

Trump was criticizing Cruz for, in his view, failing to offer unequivocal support for waterboarding in the debate on Saturday night. Trump then interrupted what he was saying to point out what a woman in the crowd had shouted.

“She just said a terrible thing,” Trump said. “You know what she said? Shout it out because I don’t want to — OK, you’re not allowed to say, and I never expect to hear that from you again. She said — I never expect to hear that from you again! — she said he’s a pussy. That’s terrible. Terrible,” Trump said, throwing up his hands.

That’s a word I never thought I would see in a headline in a major news source. The Hill features that word in its headline. A few Trumpbots in the audience started chanting the word. That said, the Cruz campaign had a nice little rejoinder

Cruz’s Communications Director responded on Twitter by saying that Trump is, “turning the campaign into the latest episode of a reality show but let’s not forget who whipped who in Iowa.”

And we’ll see who whips who in New Hampshire.
