Donald Trump’s first post-nomination interview is to air tonight on Showtime’s The Circus which seems to me to be so apropos. Apparently he still thinks he is campaigning against Cruz instead of Hillary Clinton so he had to discuss Cruz’s refusal to kiss his ring.

Bloomberg reports:

Donald Trump said he prevented Ted Cruz from being ripped off the stage by entering Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena as hundreds of angry delegates lashed out at the Texas senator.

“You know what, he’s lucky I did it,” Trump told Bloomberg Politics’ Co-Managing Editor Mark Halperin in an interview to air Sunday night on Showtime’s “The Circus.” The interview was conducted midday Friday on a flight from Cleveland to New York on one of Trump’s private planes.

“I walked in and the arena went crazy. Because there’s great unity in the Republican Party and people don’t know it,” Trump said. “Had I not walked in, I think that audience would have ripped him off the stage. I think I did him a big favor.”

When asked point blank if he entered the arena at the conclusion of Cruz’s speech on Wednesday to “tweak” his former primary rival, Trump responded: “Tweak him? I would never do a thing like that. But yes.”

Apparently Trump believed Republican delegates are a mob. Then again, I had my doubts considering how some Trump delegates treated Heidi Cruz. The delegate behavior was unbecoming, but considering who they nominated it is unsurprising.
