Trump Says He Called Cruz a ‘Pussy’ To Fight Political Correctness. That’s a Lie. He’s Just Vulgar.

Donald Trump got schlonged in Iowa by Ted Cruz, but apparently it’s Ted Cruz who’s the “pussy,” according to Trump. At a rally in New Hampshire, Trump ripped into Cruz over his supposed unwillingness to endorse waterboarding against terrorists – even though Cruz said he would use such techniques if necessary. That wasn’t good enough for Trump, who said, “Honestly, I thought he’d say, ‘absolutely’ – and he didn’t.” A woman in the crowd called something out; nobody could hear her. Trump said, “She just said a terrible thing,” then beckoned to her to repeat it. “You know what she said? Shout it out, ‘cause I don’t want to,” Trump explained. “OK, you’re not allowed to say – and I never expect to hear that from you again – she said…he’s a pussy.” Then he joked that she had said a “terrible, terrible thing.”

Trump’s supporters immediately came out of the woodwork to explain that Trump hadn’t actually called Trump a “pussy,” he’d just repeated someone in the audience. Which is ridiculous, given that he deliberately picked her comment for amplification. And sure enough, Trump then undercut his wildly-spinning backers by telling MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “I was just repeating what she said so everyone could hear. I was doing everybody a favor. I got a standing ovation [and] the place went wild. You’re talking about close to 5,000 people. It was a great moment. The world is politically correct.”
