Trump Regrets Not Letting RNC Audience ‘RIP CRUZ OFF THE STAGE,’ ADMITS Speech Was Approved
The Donald is still licking his wounds and trying to patch up his thin skin after not being able to make Ted Cruz bow to his despotic rule at the Republican convention.
Now he’s saying that had he not stepped in, the crowd would have ripped Cruz off the stage, then says he wishes he had let them do it:
In his first interview since the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump said he prevented Ted Cruz from being ripped off the stage by entering Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena as hundreds of angry delegates lashed out at the Texas senator.
“You know what, he’s lucky I did it,” Trump told Bloomberg Politics’ Co-Managing Editor Mark Halperin in an interview to air Sunday night on Showtime’s “The Circus.” The interview was conducted midday Friday on a flight from Cleveland to New York on one of Trump’s private planes.
“I walked in and the arena went crazy. Because there’s great unity in the Republican Party and people don’t know it.” Trump said. “Had I not walked in, I think that audience would have ripped him off the stage. I think I did him a big favor.”
When asked point blank if he entered the arena at the conclusion of Cruz’s speech on Wednesday to “tweak” his former primary rival, Trump responded: “Tweak him? I would never do a thing like that. But yes.”
He also second guessed the decision to enter, saying, “In retrospect, I wish I would have waited another minute. Because he was being booed right off the stage.”
This is probably all a lie by an infantile lout who has to keep proving to others and himself that he always has the upper hand on everyone.
And he admits, even though his team went out and LIED about it right after the snub, that they knew exactly what Cruz was going to say:
Trump said his campaign had approved the speech. “When I first read it, I said you know what, first of all it’s not a very good speech. This is not very exciting. Second of all, let’s throw him out.”
Trump later changed his mind, concluding that it would be “a bigger deal if we throw him out than if he reads it and doesn’t endorse, what difference does it make?”
It if didn’t make a difference then why did they lie about it?

That’s what they were saying right after Cruz left the stage to damage him, but when that didn’t work they began to say they don’t care.
They’re like whiny little children who pout, “whatever, I didn’t want a puppy anyway” when their parents didn’t get them what they wanted. Pretty pathetic.
