Trump Plays This Song at the Beginning of His Rallies Now… Is This a Blow to Cruz?

By Ethan Epstein. When political candidates play Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.” at their campaign rallies, you can usually assume they’ve never listened to the lyrics. But Donald Trump’s apparent decision to add the 1984 tune his warm-up music bespeaks a certain political savvy.

For one, Trump’s vision of America, like “Born in the U.S.A.”‘s, is a downcast one: an America that, as Trump has repeatedly said, “doesn’t win anymore.”

McCain: Cruz’s Eligibility Needs ‘to Be Looked At’

By Jordain Carney. Sen. John McCain on Monday defended his previous comments raising questions about Sen. Ted Cruz’s eligibility to run for president, saying it needs to be examined.

“I assume he’s eligible but all of these things need to be looked at,” the Arizona Republican told reporters, adding that the Texas Republican wouldn’t necessarily need to go to court but “could consult some respected constitutional scholars.”

McCain caught attention earlier this month after telling the Chris Merrill Show that he didn’t think it was “illegitimate to look into” Cruz’s eligibility. He then added that during a separate interview with the Michael Medved Show that he “would assume” Cruz, who was born in Canada, was eligible.

The Arizona Republican suggested on Monday that his previous comments had been blown out of proportion, telling reporters that “all I said was it ought to be looked at, and then all the sudden kaboom.”

McCain’s comments have earned him pushback from Cruz. The Texas Republican suggested that he’s trying to help Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who is also running for president and who Cruz predicted McCain will endorse. (Read more from “McCain: Cruz’s Eligibility Needs ‘to Be Looked At'” HERE)

    Trump’s lovely wife, Melania, was not born in the USA. Cruz kept his word that he would not attack any fellow Republican but Trump is turning up the heat with Cruz attacks that will reduce his popularity just before the primaries. If Trump thought otherwise, he was wrong. Now the RNC and DNC are ringing the “not eligible” bell loudly making both look like the idiots we have come to know they are. Where were they when B. Hussein O ran? Why no orders to release BO’s college records showing he enrolled as an emigrant and applying for Fed $ to attend college? Too many losers to count in this game.

      Yea, isn’t it amazing that John (RINO) McCain never brought up the citizenship issue about his 2008 opponent (Barack Hussein Obama) who was probably born in Kenya because he never provided a clean birth certificate for us to see? Of course, McCain loves Obama and hates Cruz because he is a Conservative. Perhaps that is why the whole Bush family hates Cruz.

      Trump’s wife isn’t running for President, so I don’t see the connection. All I know is this…no other President was born outside USA except for the usurper in office. Ted’s eligibility is in question, and so is Rubio’s. What concerns me is that both Rubio and Cruz have parents who were Cuban nationalists, and how, during a cold war, did they get Visas to be educated in USA. Remember the Cuban Missal Crisis?
