Fox’s Baier to Cruz on Criticizing Trump in Private: Why Couldn’t You Say It at Debate?

baier cruzAfter Ted Cruz declined to publicly criticize Donald Trump at last night’s GOP debate, Fox’s Bret Baier confronted Cruz tonight on why he’s okay trashing Trump behind closed doors, but not in public.

He pointed out that Cruz has absolutely no problem not only criticizing Marco Rubio, but really going for the jugular, as he did at the debate last night. Cruz said he has no problem laying out policy differences with Rubio, but won’t play into the media’s game of engaging in a “cage match” with Trump.

He again said he doubts Trump will be the nominee, but told Baier he has no problem repeating the same thing he said behind closed doors.

Baier interjected to say in private, Cruz questioned Trump’s judgment, which he did not do at the debate.
