Last night’s CNN debate was different – the other top-tier candidates, Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Marco Rubio (R-FL), took direct aim at conservative businessman Donald J. Trump.
Why did Cruz and Rubio stop attacking each other, and fire away Trump’s vulnerable issues like his donations to Democrats, his tax returns, and where his clothing line was manufactured?
After what the audience noticed during the commercial break, it became very clear! Cruz and Rubio were caught shaking hands and smirking at each other. The two rivals – who have spent millions of dollars slamming each other on television – set aside their fight to tag-team Trump.
Trump noted the candidates were “swinging for the fences” as he labeled Rubio a “choke artist” and Cruz “a liar.”
The result was the most contentious GOP primary debate in history!

The two were also caught talking and coordinating in the hallway, just before the debate. As Fox News reports:
