Donald Trump goes off on Cruz, Clinton, and Bush in moniker-filled tweetstorm

GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s latest tweetstorm featured a series of hits against Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday.

The real-estate mogul, who has been engaged in a recent back-and-forth with GOP rival Cruz after he threatened to supposedly “spill the beans” about Cruz’s wife, started his tweetstorm by railing against Cruz.
