Trump Nomination News: Can Take Jokes From Obama Any Day But Will Retaliate

Donald Trump makes jokes about others, especially opponents he loathes at almost every turn. Most recently, he made mocked Ted Cruz for naming a vice president even though his odds of winning the Republican presidential nomination race were slim. The following was his statement in regard to this.

"I see they have a new relationship this time, Cruz and Carly. Cruz can't win. What's he doing picking vice presidents?... He has set a record. He's the first presidential candidate in the history of this country who's mathematically eliminated from becoming president who chose a vice-presidential candidate. Honestly, I wish him well."

Ted Cruz had on Wednesday announced that he would pick Carly Fiorina as his running mate. Indiana is crucial for Ted as, if he wins, he could at least get some hope of blocking Trump from getting the 1,237 delegates he needs to win the first ballot nomination at the July Republican convention.

According to Lee Miringoff from the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, "Trump is positioned to corral all the [state's 57] delegates, which will be a big prize toward winning the nomination outright. Clinton and Sanders are more likely to divide the delegate pool, which will do little to change the narrative on the Democratic side."

This is as reported by NBC News.

In another instance, Trump recently mocked John Kasich's eating habits calling them disgusting. The following is a report on this by the NY Daily News.

"This guy takes a pancake and he's shoving in his mouth. It's disgusting. Do you want that for your president? I don't think so."

He also said that he liked telling his kids to take small bites when eating. While in Pennsylvania on Monday, he reiterated the same view during a rally, saying, "I never saw anything like it. It's pouring out of his mouth and the cameras are on him".

Not too long ago, Trump also mocked Indian call centers. The following was his statement.
"Guess what, you're talking to a person from India. How the hell does that work? So I called up, under the guise I'm checking on my card, I said, 'Where are you from? [Mimics Indian accent] We are from India. Oh great, that's wonderful. India is great place. I am not upset with other leaders. I am upset with our leaders for being so stupid. I am not angry with China. I am not angry at Japan. I am not angry with Vietnam, India... all these countries."
At the time, he was speaking about crooked banking saying that outsourcing certain aspects to other countries was wrong. This was his statement.
"You can't allow policies that allows China, Mexico, Japan, Vietnam, India. You can't allow policies that allows business to be ripped out of the United States like candy from a baby,"
This is as reported by India Times.

However, Trump got a taste of his own medicine yesterday when president Barrack Obama joked about him at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, which was attended by Hollywood celebrities, journalists and politicians. In attendance were Trump's sons, Eric, Donald Trump Jr, and their wives.

The following was Obama's statement.

"You know I gotta talk about Trump! Is this dinner too tacky for The Donald? What could he possibly be doing instead? Is he at home eating a Trump Steak… What's he doing?"
According to Trump's eldest son, the family could take the jokes but offered, "We'll take some shots back next year."
