Who called for building a giant wall on our southern border first, Ted Cruz or Donald Trump? Does it matter?
It may not, but Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump wants to make it clear that his closest competitor is just "copying" him.
Trump appeared on Face the Nation yesterday where he called fellow lunatic Ted Cruz a copycat.
“In fact, I was watching the other day, and I was watching Ted talk, and he said, ‘We will build a wall.’ The first time I’ve ever heard him say it,” Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“And my wife, who was sitting next to me, said ‘Oh, look, he’s copying what you’ve been saying for a long period of time,’” he added.“And I was strong on the border, and I’m the one who came up with it.”
I can recall Ted Cruz quipping that he would hire Trump to build the wall in his administration several months ago, but I digress.
The Republican frontrunners have clearly settled on the idea that we should spend a vast amount of money constructing an ineffectual monument to xenophobia and, at this point, they're simply arguing over who said it first.
As far as Democrats are concerned, it may not matter who wins the Republican nomination because the eventual nominee will have pivoted so far into Trumpian territory they may as well be him in the flesh.
Republicans may actually be better off nominating Trump rather than a cheap imitation.
