Donald Trump is known for not holding back when it comes to speaking his mind, and now the Republican presidential front-runner has uttered a insult that possibly has never seen the light of a campaign day before.
During a rally in New Hampshire on Monday, a supporter for the millionaire’s presidential candidacy screamed out “Ted Cruz is a p*ssy!” and Trump made sure to repeat it so the rest of the audience could hear.
The video shows Trump laughing after telling the woman to “shout it out,” then jokingly chiding her, “I never expect to hear that from you again.”
The real estate mogul then tells the audience that she called Cruz “a p*ssy,” which instantly drew cheers.
“She just said a terrible thing. You know what she said? Shout it out, because I don’t want to… Okay you’re not allowed to say, and I never expect to hear that from you again… She said he’s a p*ssy. That’s terrible. Terrible!”
What prompted the felinistic insult from the female rally attendee was Trump’s harsh criticism of Cruz’s stance on waterboarding and torture.
“They asked Cruz, ‘What do you think of waterboarding? Is it okay?’” Trump said. “Honestly, I thought he’d say, ‘Absolutely.’ And he didn’t. He was concerned about the answer.”
During last week’s Fox News GOP debates, the Texas senator quibbled over waterboarding and declined on Saturday to say that he would re-institute as a practice for dealing with terrorism suspects.
