Fox Anchor Confronts Trump Spox Over Claims Cruz Is Trying to ‘Steal’ Nomination

Fox News’ Martha MacCallum pressed Donald Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson this morning over their claims that Ted Cruz is trying to “steal” the GOP nomination.

Team Trump released an absolutely bonkers statement declaring that Cruz is a “Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump.”

Pierson told MacCallum the GOP establishment is only reluctantly getting behind Cruz in the first place.

As Pierson talked, MacCallum told her she’s just talking about politics and was “still not clear” on whether they “literally mean trying to steal the nomination.”

Pierson did not outright say they believe a theft is in the way, but did once again say that the establishment will “block the people’s choice” by changing the rules and denying Trump the nod if he’s on top in the end.
