Both Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin came out criticizing Donald Trump for attacking Ted Cruz recently.
On The Glenn Beck Program Tuesday, Glenn took listeners on a walk down memory lane, when in 2011, staunch conservative constitutionalist Mark Levin lambasted Donald Trump's donations to liberal politicians in the heat of the Tea Party movement.
What was Donald Trump doing? Did he go to a single rally? Did he contribute to a single Tea Party cause? Well, he was spreading around his contributions. And we're supposed to believe that every businessman does that. Really? Every businessman gives money to Chuck Schumer and Anthony Weiner and Charlie Crist. Really, I'm not aware that. Every businessman, that's what they do? Well, as recently as February 2010, a little over a year ago, right into the teeth of the Tea Party battle, Mr. Trump gave $2,000 to Anthony Weiner in his primary campaign.
Glenn praised Levin for figuring out Donald Trump so long ago.
Trump really crossed a line for Levin when the business tycoon and presidential front-runner attacked Senator Ted Cruz and Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia (listen below).
Even Rush Limbaugh chimed in about the Ted Cruz "maniac" comment.
"Well, wait just a second here. Doesn't that kind of describe how Trump has been dealing with people he agrees with?" Rush asked. "I mean, he's been calling them stupid. He's been calling them incompetent. He's been saying, you can't get anything done with these people."
"So he's decided to go after Cruz here in the way the establishment Republicans go after Cruz, in the way the media goes after Cruz, in the way the Democrats go after Cruz. He's essentially put on his John McCain hat here, saying, 'I'm Donald McCain and I'm the guy that can cross the aisle and work with the other side. Ted Cruz can't,'" he said.
Glenn went one step further.
"I think Rush is much smarter than I am, and much more wise and usually right on politics. I can't predict politics. I just, I can't figure these slimeballs out," Glenn said. "But me personally, I think Rush is giving [Donald Trump] far too much credit."
