CNN's Anderson Cooper Tells Trump He Argues Like A Five Year Old

Anderson Cooper didn't mince words with Donald Trump's behavior while discussing the feud with Ted Cruz and his wife, Heidi.

During CNN's Town Hall Tuesday night that featured the remaining three Republican candidates for the 2016 presidency, Anderson Cooper questioned Donald Trump for retweeting an "unflattering picture of (Heidi Cruz) next to a picture of your wife."

Trump immediately responded by saying he "thought it was a nice picture of Heidi, I thought it was fine." Which resulted in Cooper responding in awe, "come on!" Trump, "she's a pretty woman."

Cooper then took him to task: "You're running for president of the United States."

Trump childishly responds, "I didn't start it"

Cooper replies, "Sir, with all due respect, that's the argument of a 5-year-old"

Trump: I didn't start it!

Cooper: Yea, the argument of a five year old, he started it!

Trump: Excuse me, you would say that. That's the problem with our country.

Cooper: Every parent knows a kid who says, ‘He started it.'

Trump: No, no, no. That's the problem. Exactly that thinking...

He went on to blame Cruz for starting the fight and even though Copper corrected him by saying it was a Super PAC that made the anti-Malania add, he refused to believe it and blamed the Romney people.

Trump: Romney is very embarrassed that he did so badly four years ago. The guy choked like a dog."

And that, ladies and gentlemen is your front runner for the GOP 2016 presidential nomination!
