Ted Cruz Got Donald Trump to Defend Planned Parenthood on Stage in South Carolina

That was one of the most amazing parts of the CBS Debate and Cruz at his finest.

In a feisty exchange related to core principles, Cruz pointed out that Donald Trump had said the federal government should fund Planned Parenthood. Not only did Trump agree that the federal government should fund Planned Parenthood, but Trump praised all the good work Planned Parenthood does.

Look for that to be turned into an ad rather quickly. Cruz seriously kicked the snot out of Donald Trump on stage. In fact, during the course of this, Cruz said he liked Trump and Trump thanked Cruz. Less than a minute later, Trump was turning on Cruz like Jekyll turning to Hyde. It was bizarre.

Cruz got under Trump’s skin and played it perfectly.
