Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz took to Twitter to respond to his party’s frontrunner Donald Trump calling him a “soft, weak, little baby” earlier on Tuesday.
“[email protected], showing class & grace, calls me a “soft weak little baby.” Hope he doesn’t try to eat me!” Cruz tweeted.
He also attached a video of the well-known scene from “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” in which the character Fat Bastard told Mini Me, “Get in my belly!”
Trump has been railing on Cruz in recent days, repeatedly calling him a “liar.”
Their latest trading of barbs happened just before Tuesday’s Nevada caucuses, where Trump is a heavy favourite.
Here’s Cruz’s tweet, with the video attached, below:
