Why Ted Cruz is comparing Donald Trump to Kim Kardashian

Source: CBS News | April 1, 2016 | Alan He

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is dubbing frontrunner Donald Trump the “Kim Kardashian” of presidential candidates.

On Thursday, in an interview with the California-based “John and Ken Show” radio program, Cruz said, “There’s no doubt that Donald Trump is the Kim Kardashian presidential candidate. He sits on Twitter and makes a lot of noise, but he has no solutions to fixing the problems.”

The Texas senator’s comparison of Trump — a former reality television star and host of “The Apprentice” — to Kardashian who is the star of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” came in response to a point made by the hosts that Trump was good for television ratings. Cruz had already made the more conspiratorial argument that liberal network television executives were giving the billionaire free airtime because they wanted him to win the Republican nomination only to lose to Hillary Clinton.

Throughout the 35-minute interview, Cruz portrayed Trump as shallow, and at one point called Trump “pathological.” When asked how it felt to be the latest person in the billionaire’s cross hairs, Cruz answered, “Well, listen, Donald is pathological. Donald cannot discuss the issues or the substance. Donald prefers to communicate in 140 characters or less.”

    Cruz is getting really fired-up now and I think that the people are beginning to see that he is not what Trump is claiming that he is and that Cruz is a real person…not a hateful stick in the mud. I think that Trumpism is wearing thin, like it was stated, because so far Trump has little policy, just smears. After a while the constant smears get frustrating. NOBODY can be that bad…even if Trump says so!
