The GOP is doing everything it can to try and take down Donald Trump. Wednesday, Paul Ryan made a half-hearted attempt to attack Trump. But the best has been Mitt Romney, who tried and failed, as only Romney could, to take out Donald Trump.
Jimmy Kimmel showed a brilliant 60-second ad that helps people understand the differences between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. First, on immigration, Trump wants to build a wall and deport 11 million immigrants. But, so does Ted Cruz.
Second, Trump’s economic plan calls for a “budget-busting multi-trillion dollar tax cut with no way to pay for it.” Unfortunately, Ted Cruz does too.
“But the difference is this: Ted Cruz is a strong conservative who, like Donald Trump, opposes gun control, abortion, Obamacare and regulation,” the Romney-sounding narrator explains.
“But here’s the thing: Donald Trump is universally despised by his fellow Republicans in Congress.” Well, so is Ted Cruz.
“This is key,” the narrator says finally finding a real difference between the two. “Ted Cruz has called for carpeting bombing terrorists until the sand glows in the dark. Whereas, Donald Trump doesn’t have any position on whether the sand should glow at the end.”
There it is. The real differences between the GOP frontrunners.
