The Republican party is genuinely freaking out about Donald Trump right about now. We’re right on the cusp of Super Tuesday, which could spawn enough Trump momentum to make his GOP nomination impossible. All too late, the other candidates launched a debate assault, but Trump seems invulnerable to defeat. He knows he can say anything — and even casually mention shooting someone — yet his crowds will still cheer.
The other GOP candidates are still putting in a last-minute crusade. Marco Rubio is fighting hard while using Trump’s game to topple the frontrunner. Ted Cruz isn’t too far behind and may capture his home state of Texas. On Meet the Press (where Trump later answered to Benito Mussolini comparisons), Cruz told Chuck Todd all about Trump’s alleged mob connections. Cruz believes this could be the true reason Trump refuses to release his tax returns before Super Tuesday:
“Chuck, maybe it is the case — there have been multiple media reports about Donald’s business dealings with the Mob, with the Mafia. Maybe his taxes show those business dealings are a lot more extensive than has been reported.”
