Trump Repeats Audience Member's Vulgar Insult, Calls Cruz a 'P****'
During the last frantic day of campaigning in New Hampshire, Donald Trump echoed a supporter’s vulgar comment about Ted Cruz when he was discussing his own harsher stance on waterboarding.
"You know what she said? Shout it out, 'cause I don't want to," Trump said during the Monday rally. "OK, you're not allowed to say – and I never expect to hear that from you again – she said ‘he's a p****.’"
As the audience cheered and applauded, Trump said: “that’s terrible, terrible.”
"For the press, this is a serious reprimand,” the billionaire added.
Cruz’ communications director Rick Tyler tweeted:

Jeb Bush took to Twitter to tell Donald Trump:
.@realDonaldTrump, you aren’t just a loser, you are a liar and a whiner. John McCain is a hero. Over and out.— Jeb Bush (@JebBush) February 8, 2016
After taking heat for repeating himself in the GOP debate on Saturday night, Marco Rubio pressed the rewind button once more at a rally.
“We know how hard it is in the 21st century to instill out values in our kids instead of the values they stuff down our throats,” he said. He also repeated the same sentiment again during the same speech.
INSIDE EDITION spoke with MSNBC anchor Kate Snow about the Florida Senator’s recent repetition.
“Other Republicans are pouncing on Rubio, saying he’s taking on water but that’s not what the Rubio campaign says. They're claiming they're surging,” she said.
