Video || Cruz Faces Off with Trump Supporter

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.

Kirby: No it’s not. I just flatly, absolutely disagree with you.

At another point, Kirby claimed, “There was never this, ‘No boots on the ground.’ I don’t know where this keeps coming from.” Well. It keeps coming from here:
