Donald Trump Defends Mitch McConnell Against Ted Cruz

By  |  January 20, 2016, 12:39pm  |  @ewerickson

Is Donald switching teams again? A while back he said he had been on the establishment team, but had flipped against them. Yesterday, he attacked Ted Cruz for daring to truthfully point out Mitch McConnell had lied to conservatives.

That does not sound very anti-establishment to me. Defending Mitch McConnell is a defense of the establishment. It is also bad form.

Cruz was right. McConnell was lying and had been lying to conservatives. Him pointing it out on the Senate floor was necessary to expose McConnell. Trump is wrong to attack him for that.

This is just more evidence that Trump and the establishment are cozying up to stop Cruz.
