Celebrating with the other Muslims in New Jersey.
Cruz lacks finesse so he comes off as disingenuous most of the time. When Trump wanted to get word out that Cruz was born in Canada, he posed it as something the Democrats will exploit so it should be cleared up. Basically, concern trolling. Ted on the other hand has the nuance of a nuclear bomb. He's in the South and wants to win points by calling Trump a Yankee so you just blurts out "NEW YORK" over and over again. It's obvious pandering and he ended up getting fucked for it.
I'm not sure why he has a reputation as a master debater. He's so incredibly transparent in his pandering that he ends up being incredibly unlikable. Connection with people emotionally is important. Cruz comes off as the loud mouth who would shout out answers in class for questions he wasn't even asked. He needs to go read a Dale Carnegie book to get a refresher on how to connect with humans.
Honestly every politican pulled the 9/11 card at some point in their careers and usually you can see past it cause they're full of shit but trump was able to use it perfectly and I actually felt compassion on his part. Kudos to trump.
Marco tore Cruz a new one about that whole vote-flipping thing (which Cruz never addressed). He's a slippery eel. He looks creepy, he talks in a carefully calculated, controlled way.
Trump just wanted an opportunity for fisticuffs with Cruz. He just needed to engage so that he'd have an excuse to go all out on him. Because up until recently he's been forced to be polite, and it's helped Cruz out tremendously.
I think Trump was playing America like a fiddle tonight. Remember, most of the message is the presentation
Feels fucking amazing. MAGA!
That's probably because trump was there when it happened, he had 250 people working on the cleanup and he was down there on ground zero at day 1.
There's an interview link of him around here, from 2001, I forgot the link.
That's irrelevant. Cruz got raped by Trump, but he got annihilated by Rubio. And that point Rubio brought up about flipping the vote to pander to Iowa voters won't sit well. Cruz was the last obstacle for a clean sweep into the nom, and now he's done.
>But yeah, 9/11 is a fucking cheap shot.
Its relevant because he was insulting New York -as a state-, shades of Romney's 47%. It doesn't matter that in both cases the statement was essentially true, its still fucked up and shows contempt.
Doesn't help that lots of people who don't live in New York at one time did and still identify as New Yorkers or have family and friends in New York. It was a weird unforced error to make.
Trump's just now getting comfy in the political realm and so am I family.
Fuck ted cruz and his kike wife and every kike shekel AIPAC pays him to sell out america to israel and the kikes.
Cruz could easily have preempted the 9/11 card by using it himself to differentiate between the "common" New Yorker and the "liberal" establishment. Instead, he insults the entirety of the state.
How fucking stupid is Cruz and his staff? Trump already used the 9/11 card in earlier interviews in response to Cruz's statement, and Trump just delivered one of the best, most sincere rebuttals (even if it sidestepped Cruz's point) in television history.
Mark Halperin and John Heilmann are the only pundits i respect. They actually don't give a fuck about politics, so they aren't invested, so they call it as they see it. They've been above average as far as respecting Trump for months now because they know he is the probable nominee and want him on their show.
Also Trump showed his power level with that answer. The visceral description of the SMELL was godtier and Cruz is now stumped.
Cruz never shows how being from NYC is actually negative. He just vaguely uses it as an indication Trump may not be that conservative.
When Trump criticizes someone he always shows how it would make them a weak candidate.
Cruz just manages to sound like an asshole for 30 seconds.
Rubio should have brought up Audit the Fed too. People including Cruz complained that Rubio was skipping votes, but in the case of Audit the Fed it was Cruz, not Rubio, that skipped the vote.
Best comment on the YouTube video of Cruz and Trump debating "New York values".
