If This Isn't A Case Of 'The Pot Calling The Kettle Black', Nothing Is

Well now, Donald Trump, the man who should be nominated by the GOP (according to him) because he is winning everywhere-winning every national poll, winning every state poll and doing so by a "Yuge" [sic] margin, and the candidate who supposedly doesn't attack other opponents unless they attack him first, seems to have broken his own rule [which was never true in the first place] by going after his supposed ally, Senator Ted Cruz when  being interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday saying that Cruz "was not qualified to be president"

Why did the man who supposedly never goes after his opponent unless he is attacked first go after Cruz like this.  Because there have been polls that have come out showing that Donald Trump is not winning every state poll big because Senator Ted Cruz has overtaken Trump in Iowa, and is beating Trump by a "Yuge" margin.  And if fact, now the Real Clear Politics average of all polls in the Iowa caucuses show Cruz has overtaken Trump as the leader in Iowa [i.e., now Trump is a "loser" in Iowa].

When Chris Wallace asked Donald Trump why did he said he didn't think Ted Cruz was qualified to be president, you will not believe what Donald Trump said next.  Trust me when I tell you this, you better be sitting down when you read this.  Trump told Wallace,
"I don't think he has the right temperament. I don't think he's got the right judgment. When you look at the way he has dealt with the Senate, where he goes in there like a, you know, frankly, like a little bit of a maniac - you are never going to get things done that way."

If anybody should know about acting like a maniac...
Whoa, Nelly!  If there is a better example of the idiom, "The pot calling the kettle black", I sure can't think of any

My tribble and Face Book friend from Colorado (and #1 fan of the #1 Clemson Tigers), Cathy York said it best in a Face Book comment she made to me:  "My take is that Trump is engaging in projection (i.e., baselessly accusing one's opponent of one's own shortcoming)."

I like my Senator Ted Cruz and this blog supported him strongly in his senate bid.  So, this is a little friendly advice to the senator from Texas.  I understand when someone is digging himself in a hole with their rhetoric like Trump is with his comments about you, you just may want to sit back and let him keep digging; but please stop telling us what a wonderful person Donald Trump is because he is not a wonderful person.  He is a jerk and a bully.
