Trump Spox: Cruz Having ‘Hard Time Trying to Reconcile Where He Fits into This Race’

‘What a lot of people also know is that it’s going to take a coalition to win in a general election and only Donald Trump has proven he’s able to build one’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
BLITZER: "The bromance between your candidate Donald Trump and Cruz, they’re really going at each other seriously. Listen to this."
[clip starts]
CRUZ: "Right now, the Washington establishment is abandoning Marco Rubio. They’ve made the assessment that Marco can’t win this race. The Washington establishment is rushing over to support Donald Trump."
[clip ends]
BLITZER: "So what’s the point here, what are you trying to suggest?"
PIERSON: "I think what’s happening is only one person can win and it’s come down to Ted Cruz and trump. So of course he’s positioned himself to be the Washington outsider, the fight, the outside establishment guy. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of people that have come to the aid of trump who are outsiders, who have a clear record of fighting against the establishment. Even when you look at the endorsement of Sarah Palin. When you look at someone who is very much well respected on the religious right has come out and supported trump. So Mr. Cruz is having a really hard time trying to reconcile where he fits into this race. Donald Trump is not the establishment. A lot of people understand that. What a lot of people also know is that it’s going to take a coalition to win in a general election and only Donald Trump has proven he’s able to build one."
