Since the first Republican debate this season, people have been watching for what Donald Trump would say. However, most times they’re waiting for what he says about a particular competitor. This time, it was Senator Ted Cruz.
Cruz said something to the effect that Trump’s poll numbers would eventually go down and his supporters and Carson supporters would turn to him. It’s been a given by some conservatives that Trump is some kind of stalking horse for Cruz. He says the outrageous things that will make Cruz sound more reasonable.
Trump called Cruz a maniac, which was not newsworthy by itself. However, some conservatives chided Trump for going after a candidate who has been pretty cordial to Trump. Cruz saying that he’ll eventually get more votes than Trump is pretty much the least offensive thing a competitor could say.
I’m still not going to watch the debate.
