On Monday’s episode of The Rush Limbaugh Show, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh called 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s recent attack on opposing GOP candidate Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a mistake that causes him to question whether Trump intends to align with grassroots conservatives or the political establishment.

Limbaugh said:

[pull_quote_center]My questioning here about the way Trump has gone off Cruz here, calling him a maniac, [accusing him of] refusing to work with people in the Senate, the reason I’m focusing on that, folks, ’cause that’s so unlike Trump. I mean, that’s a huge mistake. On paper it’s a huge mistake. Trump gets away with his mistakes. Such is the bond of loyalty that his support base has for him that he gets away with them. And I don’t think he’s made that many. Don’t misunderstand. But for any of you who are holding out hope that Trump is a genuine conservative. A genuine conservative, even in the Republican field, would not go after Cruz this way. So that just raised a red flag for me, made me somewhat curious.[/pull_quote_center]

Limbaugh added that he is unsure whether the comment will hurt Trump’s support, “because, frankly, folks, if you look at Trump’s support base, the majority of it is not conservative.

But even people who are not particularly aligned with Cruz on the right have gotta be curious about this because [Trump’s attacks are] no different than what the media would say about Ted Cruz. This is no different than what the Democrat Party would say. I mean, this is what the Republican establishment would say, for crying out loud. I mean, this is akin to saying, ‘I’m the guy who can cross the aisle and work with the other side.’ That hasn’t been the way Trump has come off up ’til now. He’s not positioned that way,” said Limbaugh, wondering aloud about Trump’s motives in attacking Cruz.

Limbaugh said that he believes that Cruz’s recent surge in the polls may have “shaken Trump up” and motivated him to attack the senator from Texas.
