Trump demands Cruz stop negative ads, threatens to sue over eligibility

trump-twitter rehabOn Friday, media mogul and GOP candidate Donald Trump issued an ultimatum that had a number of people scratching their heads.

Sadly, it is.  Which makes me wonder: What will he do when a foreign leader disagrees with him? Will he engage in a childish Twitter rant and threaten to sue?

Personally, I think he ought to do it, but not for the reason his supporters think.  Some others think the same thing:

Others used his own adjective against him:

Please.  He should either put up or shut up.
