Donald Trump isn’t just whining on Twitter about how Ted Cruz “stole” the Iowa caucus win. In a radio interview, Trump said he might sue to turn himself from a loser into a winner. Trump’s expressed outrage continues to center on Cruz’s campaign having told caucus-goers that Ben Carson was dropping out of the race rather than going home to do laundry before resuming his grifting. Of course, Trump is really just mad he lost, but the Cruz-Carson flap gives him a handy angle to push:
“One of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen. They said he was quitting the race and to vote for him,” said Trump.
Asked if he would sue, Trump said, “I probably will, what he did is unthinkable. He said the man has left the race and he said it during the caucus. And then when the clarification was put out by Ben Carson saying it’s untrue, they got the statement and they didn’t put it out.” [...]
“It’s a total voter fraud when you think of it and he picked up a lot of those votes and that’s why the polls were so wrong, because of that,” continued Trump. “I couldn’t understand why the polls were wrong.”
Yes, so hard to understand how, other than fraud, a candidate with no ground game who skipped the final debate before the caucus could possibly have slipped behind a candidate with a solid ground game. Will Trump really follow through and sue, though? Or is he all talk?
