‘Trumpertantrum’ – Donald Trump says he’ll ‘probably’ sue Cruz over Iowa

Trump5Apparently, it’s not good to beat the Donald in an election.  While appearing on Boston Herald Radio Wednesday, media mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would “probably” sue Sen. [score]Ted Cruz[/score], R-Texas, alleging the Cruz campaign engaged in voter fraud.

Buzzfeed reported:

“One of the most disgusting things I’ve ever seen. They said he was quitting the race and to vote for him,” said Trump.

Asked if he would sue, Trump said, “I probably will; what he did is unthinkable. He said the man has left the race and he said it during the caucus. And then when the clarification was put out by Ben Carson saying it’s untrue, they got the statement and they didn’t put it out.”

Apparently, it doesn’t matter that (a) others, including Marco Rubio, thought Carson was dropping out thanks to confusing media reports and (b) it’s not against the law to encourage supporters of other candidates to vote for you.  After all, it’s called “politics” for a reason.

Naturally, Trump supporters went along, apparently unaware of what constitutes voter fraud.

Others, however, appeared to be fed up with Trump’s rhetoric.

The situation got so bad that the term “Trumpertantrum” actually began trending on Twitter:

And this certainly isn’t going to make Trump or his supporters happy:

So, will this help or hurt Trump in New Hampshire, where he still leads in the polls?  We’ll find out soon enough.

Exit question: Will Trump also threaten to sue voters who didn’t support him?
