DONALD TRUMP IS not known for his tact.
Last night in New Hampshire, however, he may have broken new ground for him.
Speaking about Texas senator Ted Cruz, who beat Trump in the Iowa caucuses last week, Trump said that Cruz was soft on the issue of waterboarding – a form of torture used by the CIA.
When an audience member interjected, Trump repeated her comment.
“You’re not allowed to say, and I never expect to hear that from you again.
She said – I never expect to hear that from you again! She said he’s a pussy! Terrible. Terrible. That’s terrible.
The crowd responded by chanting Trump’s name.
Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler responded to the Associated Press via email, saying, “Let’s not forget who whipped who in Iowa.”
He also did not spare his other rivals for the Republican nomination.
“Jeb (Bush) is having some kind of a breakdown, I think,” Trump told CNN, calling Bush, the son and brother of presidents, a spoiled child and an embarrassment to his family.
“I think it’s a very sad situation that’s taking place.”
Trump is on course to win the New Hampshire primary today, having lost last week’s Iowa caucuses.
