Popular radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says 2016 GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent attacks against Ted Cruz are unlike “The Donald.”
According to Politico:
“Ted Cruz has a new defender: conservative king of radio Rush Limbaugh.
The Republican host on Monday supported the Texas senator against his presidential opponent, Republican front-runner Donald Trump.
Once a strident supporter of Trump, Limbaugh dialed back his support after he labeled Cruz a “maniac” for his ability to incite broad and long-standing opposition within the party’s leadership in the Senate. Trump’s remarks followed a series of open-ended questions from Cruz that took issue with his private fundraising tactics and judgment, as well as Cruz’s surge in polls in Iowa.
Limbaugh addressed the issue head-on during his show, claiming Trump’s behavior was out of character.
“My questioning here about the way Trump has gone off on Cruz here, calling him a maniac, refusing to work with people in the Senate, the reason I’m focusing on that, folks, ’cause that’s so unlike Trump. I mean, that’s a huge mistake,” he said.”
