Trump denies saying Heidi Cruz tweet was a mistake

To me its incredible that a US presidential candidate can be as inconsistent as Trump. Even more so is the fact that he manages to get away with these inconsistencies so often. I’ve yet to see any media interviewer seriously challenge him on statements that are clearly untrue.

Trump sent a tweet attacking the appearance of Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi. Later he expressed regret. However, on Tuesday night, the presumptive Republican presidential candidate adamantly denied calling it a mistake, telling Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, “I actually didn’t say it that way.”

So clearly wrong.

“Yeah, it was a mistake,” Trump told New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd in April. “If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t have sent it.”

As usual, Kelly lets him off the hook and moves on.
