But both on Monday bashed the real estate mogul for attacking Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and calling the senator a “maniac” who cannot work with his Senate colleagues.
Limbaugh described Trump’s negative comments about Trump as a “huge mistake” during his radio show on Monday.
“A genuine conservative, even in the Republican field, would not go after Cruz this way. So that just raised a red flag for me, made me somewhat curious,” Limbaugh said.
In a Monday Facebook post, Levin said that Trump’s description of Cruz as a “maniac” suggests that the real estate mogul believes that “all conservatives who support Cruz against McConnell” are maniacs.
“Defending the GOP ruling class and lurching left are dumb tactics,” Levin wrote of Trump’s comments.
And on his radio show on Monday, Levin told Trump, “It’s Mitch McConnell is the maniac, it’s McCain who is the maniac, it’s Graham who is the maniac, it’s not Cruz.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity also criticized Trump on his radio show for attacking Cruz, noting that conservatives love the Texas senator.
