– “I think that Donald Trump really scored big time on the shot, which was well thought out. He (Cruz) and his people obviously said, you know, we’ll try to tie the liberal New York around Donald Trump’s neck and use that to diminish his conservative credentials, and of course it backfired.”
– I think Trump did extraordinarily well. He was the clear winner, certainly, between the battle of Ted Cruz, who’s a great debater, there’s no doubt about it, but Donald scored a real haymaker there.”
– “Attacking Bernie Sanders because he’s come up with a single-payer tax system, saying we need to have a healthcare plan and Medicare for all, and she’s (Hillary Clinton) saying, ‘Well how do you pay for it?’ My God, that’s a Republican line. So she’s sounding more like a Republican, and I think she’s helping to galvanize support for Bernie. Her campaign is now getting very concerned, to say the least.”
