The 2016 presidential election has inarguably turned into one of the most volatile races to the White House in modern history — maybe the most! And a lot of that has to do with the nasty barbs thrown between GOP candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz! Click through to read the worst!
The republican presidential election has become a bit of a circus, no thanks to the brutal antics between warring candidates! While John Kasich, 63, has managed to stay quiet and out of the way, Donald Trump, 69, and Ted Cruz, 45, are out for blood! As they move into the Wisconsin GOP primary on April 5, let’s look at some of their absolute worst insults!
Where to begin? It’s clear that Trump has no filter, and that goes doubly when he’s talking about his political rival Ted. While ribbing your fellow candidate is part of election seasons, generally its reserved toward slamming their policies — not their physical appearances or personal lives! Not for Trump, though. Not at all. Ted’s “a little baby.”
Prior to the Nevada caucuses in February, Trump said at a rally: “I’ve met much tougher people than Ted Cruz. He is like a baby compared to some of the people I have to deal with. He is like a little baby: soft, weak, little baby by comparison. [He’s] the single biggest liar I have ever dealt with.” Yikes. It’s far from the worst insult.
He repeated an insult that a woman shouted at a rally in New Hampshire prior to the primary, again in February, calling Ted “a p***y.” He mock reprimanded her for the insult, but continued to repeat it as the crowd cheered. Donald’s jabs at Ted are a dime a dozen. Small stings, classless as they are, probably don’t bother him so much. Then the insults toward his wife, Heidi, started.
Trump saw a mean meme made by a Cruz super PAC which insulted his wife, Melania. The image used a photo from one of her scantily-clad GQ shoots. Mistakenly believing that it was made by the Cruz camp itself, Trump went on the warpath and retweeted someone’s insanely insulting photo of Heidi in retaliation. It was a side-by-side of Heidi and Melania, an unflattering pic of Heidi taken at a weird moment, next to one of Melania’s professional modeling shots.
Furthermore, Trump made a vague threat to “spill the beans” on Heidi, saying that he knows something terrible about her. This came at the same time that the National Enquirer ran a story saying that Ted cheated on Heidi with five women, a story that he believed Trump leaked to further defame him! Trump’s denied that, but he did take the chance to call him a “rotten cheater” and a “disgrace” who will “sell you down the tubes.” Classy.
Ted called him a “sniveling coward.” Though Trump kind of apologized, it’s clear that this is far from over. While visiting Jimmy Kimmel Live! on March 30, Ted joked that he’d run over Trump with his car if he had the chance.
