Not defending a constitutional principle, just emotionally lashing out.
It’s Friday afternoon.
This should get the holiday weekend off to a nice, quiet start.
Donald Trump, angry that negative ads are being run against him, is threatening to sue to keep Ted Cruz out of the race based on the claim that Cruz is not a “natural born Citizen” and not eligible. (h/t Hot Air)
My view is here. I *thank* the people who have emailed me to call me a traitor and fraud and hack because of my view on the subject.
Here is Trump’s Friday Twitter Trumpertantrum:
Trump also is retweeting some some hoorahs for his threat:
BONUS QUESTION: Will The Donald also sue to keep Marco Rubio off the ballot if Marco gains momentum again and runs attack ads? After all, many of the people who claim Cruz is ineligible also claim Rubio is ineligible because his parents were not citizens at the time of his birth in the United States. (Yes, I address that claim also in my prior post.)
I think Trump should sue. I’m not just saying that. I don’t know that Trump has standing, but he’s probably closer to it than most people out there. So go ahead, Donald, file the lawsuit, don’t just threaten it. And do it against Rubio too. I’m sick of hearing the threat. Just do it.
Maybe Ann Coulter could represent you.
That was then, I guess, this is now.
The Constitution hasn’t changed, just the politics. Let that be a lesson.
