During a campaign rally on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump echoed the words of one of his fans, and called Sen. Ted Cruz a “p*ssy.”
Trump was rambling on about all of the ghastly things he would do to “our enemies” – things that everybody else besides his rabid supporters thinks fall under the categories of stuff like torture, war crimes, and WTF.
He began to talk about the last debate and when the subject of waterboarding was brought up. Trump said that he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding,” while Cruz was hesitant to show quite as much enthusiasm for this particular human rights violation.
Honestly I thought he’d say, ‘absolutely’ – and he didn’t.
Suddenly, a woman in the crowd shouted something out, and Trump stopped his speech dead in its tracks.
She just said a terrible thing.
Trump asked the woman to repeat what she had just said, bidding her to speak louder, but then giving up and repeating her comment into the microphone for the rest of the audience to hear.
You know what she said? Shout it out, ’cause I don’t want to,” Trump continued. “OK, you’re not allowed to say – and I never expect to hear that from you again – she said … he’s a pussy.
“That’s terrible, terrible,” Trump said with his trademark narcissistic smirk. The crowd laughed and cheered predictably, delighted with the use of childish trailer-trash language as expected.
The GOP frontrunner also took a few jabs at Marco Rubio during the rally, saying that he was “sweating like a dog” during the debate when faced with the night’s attacks.
Trump is in first place in New Hampshire’s polls ahead of the primary, leading by a wide margin. In Iowa, the real estate mogul came in second to Cruz.
