The war of words has been heating up on both sides of the campaign dial, but the Democrats have nothing on the Republicans.

Glenn Beck interviewed Ted Cruz earlier today and the Texas Senator compared Trump's action to those attributed to La Cosa Nostra and the movie character Michael Corleone, made famous in the Godfather movies.

Cruz said, "Donald needs to to understand he’s not Michael Corleone. I understand that Donald has had some very shady business deals with people that are currently in prison, mobsters . But the presidency should not be La Cosa Nostra."

He continued, " Donald needs to stop threatening the voters. He needs to stop threatening the delegates. He is not a mobster."

On one hand Cruz is saying Trump is emulating Michael Corleone and his thuggish tactics, but in the same breath says that he's not a mobster. See what he did there?

Let's face it, Trump supporter love that he acts like he's Michael Corleone, a mob boss that you don't f*ck around with or you'll sleep with the fishes.
