Is this real life?

Ted Cruz came out of the New Hampshire primary on Feb. 9 with an attack ad against Donald Trump, who won the New Hampshire primary. (Cruz came in third.) The video features three boys playing with a Donald Trump action figure.

When one boy walks into the room with his new toy, his friends ask, “What does he do?”

“He pretends to be Republican!” the first boy replies.

They all burst into laughter, and start yelling phrases like “too big to fail” and “eminent domain” while smashing a toy house to bits.

Cruz also put out an ad in anticipation of the GOP Nevada caucus on Feb. 23, claiming Trump wants to keep “big government” in charge of Nevada land.

“You, the people of Nevada, not Washington bureaucrats, should be in charge of your own land,” he says as his talking head transitions into photo of a weathered cowboy, and then to a photo of a herd of cows.

Trump put out an attack ad on Jan. 22 against Cruz, with video of Cruz on news channels stumbling over his words when talking about immigration and amnesty.
