During a last-minute campaign stop in New Hampshire Monday, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump eagerly repeated a supporters’ attack on Senator Ted Cruz, by enthusiastically calling his opponent a “pussy.”
Donald Trump on Tuesday equated parroting a phrase calling Ted Cruz a p—- to a Twitter retweet.
“We were having a lot of fun…it wasn’t overly bad, and I have to tell you, the woman shouted, shouted, I said OK, I’m gonna — it’s like a retweet,” he told “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday. “So I would never say a word like that.”
Trump on Monday repeated a woman at a rally in New Hampshire who called Cruz a p—- for his response on waterboarding in Saturday’s debate. “She said he’s a p—-,” Trump announced to the Manchester crowd.
“By the way, can I tell you what?” Trump began Tuesday. “The audience went crazy. Standing ovation. Five thousand people went nuts. They loved it. You know, we’re having fun. And that’s what I mean about being politically correct. Every once in a while you can have a little fun, don’t you think?”
