Rush Limbaugh Says Trump’s Attacks On Cruz Are Off The Mark

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.”
