    Sen. Ted Cruz challenged Donald Trump to a one-on-one debate after the real estate mogul said he doesn't plan to attend Thursday's Fox News debate in Des Moines.

    "I’m happy to go an hour and a half mano a mano, me and Donald with no moderators any time before the Iowa caucuses," Cruz said on The Mark Levin Show Tuesday. Cruz said Trump can name his own moderator and Levin offered up his airwaves.

    "The fact that Donald is now afraid to appear on a debate stage, that he doesn't want his record questioned ... that reflects a lack of respect for the men and women of Iowa," Cruz said.

    Cruz noted that Trump has called him stupid in recent days, and said that should bode well for Trump in a debate between the two men.

    "He should do very, very well in a debate with someone who is so stupid away from moderators you’re so afraid of," Cruz said.

    Cruz said that Trump is "scared" of moderator Megyn Kelly, with whom he sparred during a debate last year and later said she had "blood coming out of her wherever" during the debate.

    "Donald is a fragile soul. You know if she asks him mean questions I mean his hair might stand on end," Cruz said of Kelly in Fairfield, Iowa, and likened missing the debate to skipping a job interview.

    "If he needs to be in Manhattan I want you to think how you would react if you were interviewing someone for a job and they said you know what I’m not willing to show up for the interview," Cruz said. "And you know what? If someone did that, didn’t show up at the interview you know what you’d say? You’re fired."

    Trump is getting man handled right now, he is used to yes men stroking his cock. A line in the sand has been drawn, the question is.

    Is Trump man enough to step over it?

    While Sanders has real proposals for strengthening SS and regulating the banks, these two cunts both agree on massive 1%er tax cuts and deregulating the banks and regulatory agencies. They say absolutely nothing of substance, have zero valid proposals. All of their proposals are in fact extremely dangerous. Cruz in particular wants a Theocracy and everyone walking around with a gun.

    If Ted Cruz is so weak and unimportant then trump should face him head on like man and destroy him once and for all. I have to tell you, This whole thing is making him look weak.

    Some say its a brilliant move others say its a show of weakness, which is it?

    I really don't think so. I only see Democrats attacking him. I think a lot of people are impressed that a Republican candidate would refuse to be manhandled by the giant that is Fox News that has so much power with Republicans usually.

    The only republicans attacking him over this are the National Review types that have been doing so for months, it doesn't have much effect and they're not real people in my view.

    It comes off as desperate to me. Ted Cruz looks kind of foolish right now because yesterday he was testing out the insult that "Trump is establishment" and now Trump is refusing to do a major debate.

    Ted Cruz is not the one running from a fight. Like i said, if Cruz is not a threat then destroy him now.

    He's doing this in part to hurt Cruz, but not because he's scared of the actual debate IMO. When he scrips reality television drama like this, there's nothing Cruz can say or do to get in the news. fair or not.

    But anyone who says this is because Trump is scared of Megyn Kelly... WTF? Trump does interviews with Clinton operatives like Geroge Stephanoplos every day- that attack makes no sense. Is Megyn supposed to be some sort of unique genius?
