Trump Blows Up at Cruz: ‘You Are the Single Biggest Liar!’
After Ted Cruz went after Donald Trump at tonight’s debate for being a fake conservative who’s held plenty of liberal positions in the past, Trump exploded.
Cruz claimed that Trump supports federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Trump shot back, “You are the single biggest liar!”
Trump said that he lied about Ben Carson in the much-debated Iowa fracas and is spreading false claims about him in South Carolina. He cried, “This guy will say anything! Nasty guy! Now I know why he doesn’t have one endorsement from any of his colleagues.”
Cruz shot back that 1) it’s ironic he’s defending Carson when he was attacking him months ago, and 2) he “didn’t disagree with the substance” of the claims Cruz leveled about his liberalism.
They ended up getting in a fight over Planned Parenthood, with Trump in the position of defending the health care provider for all the non-abortion-related services they provide to women.
Trump tried to turn the “you’re not conservative” argument on Cruz by pointing out he advocated for Chief Justice John Roberts‘ Supreme Court appointment when he ended up siding with Obamacare in a pivotal ruling.
At one point as they fought, Cruz smacked down Trump by saying, “Adults learn not to interrupt.”
