Most of us who have followed the GOP nomination contest expected Donald Trump to show his posterior pursuant to his loss to Senator Ted Cruz in the Iowa caucuses, but it’s unlikely that many expected him to crack up after only one defeat. Nonetheless, that seems to be what’s happening. Even when he reverted to his trademark antics only one day after an uncharacteristically rational concession speech, few students of the Donald’s weird campaign could have been surprised. It’s difficult, however, to escape the conclusion that Trump is losing it when he claims that Cruz foisted Obamacare upon the nation.
The “reasoning” behind this wacky accusation involves controversial Obamacare rulings by Chief Justice John Roberts, whose confirmation Trump now lays at the Texas Senator’s feet: “He’s the one that got Justice Roberts onto the United States Supreme Court. He pushed him. He approved him, and Justice Roberts approved Obamacare twice.… Ted Cruz gave us Obamacare, believe me.” Although their applause made it clear that the lofo attendees of the Little Rock rally at which Trump made this bizarre charge did indeed “believe” him, the claim that Cruz somehow gave us Roberts or Obamacare is… well… nuts.
