Limbaugh Rips Trump For Calling Cruz ‘Nasty’

Conservative radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh is not happy about Donald Trump slamming Ted Cruz on the campaign trail, according to Newsmax.

“I think Trump is making a strategic error in the way he criticizes Cruz,” Limbaugh said on his program. “I think Trump going after Cruz is quite normal; it’s understandable. But I think he’s making a tactical error the way he’s doing it. Whatever you want to say, Cruz is not a ‘nasty’ guy (as Trump alleged).”

The commentator continued: “When you get into criticism, it better be believable. But Trump is looking at Cruz, and I’m sure is hearing about the negatives that Cruz has, and I’m not gonna sit here and pretend to you that they don’t exist. Heck, folks, even in my own circle of friends, there are people that don’t like Cruz or Bush or Rubio. It runs the gamut.”

Last month, Limbaugh blasted Trump for his “left-wing, liberal language” denouncing Cruz. Since then, the Texas senator has soared in the polls. He now holds a narrow lead over the billionaire businessman in Iowa, the site of the first election in the nominating process on Feb. 1.

The tone of the debate “changed when Cruz takes the lead in Iowa, and Trump doesn’t want to lose Iowa,” Limbaugh explained. “And this is the way Trump goes after everybody. It shouldn’t be a surprise here.”
