    Donald Trump's speech Monday night in Iowa after his surprising loss in the caucuses was perhaps most noteworthy for its graciousness.


    "I want to congratulate Ted, and I want to congratulate all of the incredible candidates," Trump told supporters in West Des Moines, saying he was "honored" to finish second.

    Was this the beginning of a kinder, gentler Trump? Well.....

    "Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning in the opening salvo of a series of tweets eviscerating Cruz.

    The impetus for Trump's fraud accusation appeared to be an erroneous claim from Cruz's campaign Monday night during the caucuses that Ben Carson was poised to drop out of the race. Cruz later apologized for spreading the incorrect information.

    But Trump didn't stop there as he leveled other claims against Cruz, including that the Texas senator falsely suggested he supported Obamacare.

    He concluded by calling for a redo of the caucuses or for Cruz's win to be ruled invalid.

    If anyone could pull that off, it would be Cruz. He really is the guy who intentionally breaks the pencil sharpener and turns up the heat to 95 as he exits the exam room.

    Whats funny is the media is actually siding with Trump this time. Ben Carson called him out on it too.

    If the opposing campaign stands to gain substantially, i.e., evangelical voters that were the only ones voting for Carson anyway because jesus freaks stick together, then committing a misdemeanor (something the voting flyer is according to most by misrepresenting a document as official) and being a slimy fuck reporting false info, tell me how thats not a piece of shit move?

    Cruz is claiming to be an outsider, but all he does is act like a typical politician. Canned speeches, flipping on issues, tricking voters, etc.

    Trump is the only try outsider and while a revote will never happen, he is 100% correct that the cruz campaign actually broke the law here (misdemeanor) and were a bunch of fuckers screwing over Carson, Trump, and the voters by spreading false rumors.

    Mr. "Lets only discuss the issues" sure likes to be sleazy any chance he gets.

    Bullshit. You don't have to cheat or steal in Iowa. You just have to win 6 coin tosses in a row.

    I have to say the whole "coming unhinged" optics by Trump look very Presidential. LOL.

    Of course the average voting Republican would never recognize a smear campaign when you can't run on what you've said or done in the past. Cruz is living rent free in Trump's head.

    In case you don't understand the process in Iowa this isn't people standing around and talking before the vote.

    At each precinct before the vote they have someone for each candidate stand up and speak on their behalf. If the Cruz rep stood up and said Carson was dropping out there's no doubt it affected the vote. This is why ground game matters so much in Iowa.
