Finally Rush Limbaugh Goes After Trump: "A Genuine Conservative Wouldn't Go After Cruz This Way"

First, if you haven't read Guy's piece about the Trump phenomenon, please do. You can find it here

During his show today Rush Limbaugh, who has been an avid supporter of Donald Trump to the point of equating those opposed to him to Hamas Islamic terrorists, criticized him for attacking conservative Ted Cruz as a "maniac" on the campaign trail.

"One thing here, I'm questioning the way Trump went after Cruz here, calling him a maniac, refusing to work with people in the Senate, the reason I am focusing on that folks is because it's so unlike Trump. I mean, that's a huge mistake, but, on paper it's a huge mistake. Trump gets away with his mistakes, such is the bond of loyalty his support base has for him that he gets away with them and I don't think he's made that many, don't misunderstand," Rush said (bolding is mine). "But for any of you that are holding out hope that Trump is a genuine conservative, even in the Republican field, would not go after Cruz this way. That just raised a red flag for me."

UPDATE: Limbaugh denies an attack on Trump. 

He clarified, “I haven’t turned on anybody. I haven’t thrown anybody away. I haven’t announced support for anybody.”

He insisted he was just disappointed and asking a question about Trump’s attack on Cruz “because it sounded like the same kind of criticism we would get from the establishment Republicans.”
