Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) posted a video clip on Twitter from the 1983 film Flashdance in response to comments made by Donald Trump on Sunday referring to him as “a maniac.”

“In honor of my friend @realDonaldTrump and good-hearted #Maniacs everywhere,” Cruz said in the post, linking to a YouTube video of a scene from the film featuring the song Maniac.


The political spat between Cruz and Trump was apparently ignited when Cruz reportedly told supporters that the real estate developer was facing a ‘challenging question’ about whether he has the ‘judgment’ to be president.

Trump responded by questioning Cruz’s judgment:

“You look at the way he's dealt with the Senate where he goes in there like a, frankly, like a little bit of a maniac, you're never going to get things done that way,” Trump said.
