“Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet — he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump.” – Donald Trump campaign response, April 5, 2016
After Ted Cruz won the Wisconsin primary, some pro-Trump Twitter accounts imploded. Oftentimes using blatantly fake “news” stories from questionable sources, these accounts often claimed that Ted Cruz engaged in voter fraud to steal the Wisconsin primary from the rightful winner, Donald Trump.
This is “sore loser” on steroids.
But even those silly tweets did not compare to the response from Donald Trump’s campaign itself, where Ted Cruz was accused of “coordinating with his own SuperPAC’s [sic] (which is illegal) who completely control him.”
Here is the response, as tweeted by Robert Costa.

My favorite thing about Cruz winning, besides the actual win, is when Trumpidians start shouting “voter fraud!!” Too predictable.
