Why would Cruz try to be polite with this moron, whom he met Monday during a campaign stop in Marion, Indiana?
Ironically, that’s what people like about Trump. Were this a Cruz supporter, Trump would have put this guy away and not pretended that you are going to have a reasonable discussion with him. He would have given him the respect he deserved – that is, none.
Maybe Cruz thought he was back at Harvard and saw in this man the captain of the Yale debating team.
