Donald Trump called attention to and repeated a name that one woman used to describe 2016 rival Ted Cruz at a rally Monday evening.
The latest round of name-calling came as Trump was discussing Cruz’s answer about water boarding at the last debate before the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.
Trump said, “They asked Ted Cruz, ‘What do you think of water boarding? Is it OK?’ And honestly, I thought he’d say ‘absolutely’ and he didn’t. He said, ‘well…’ You know he’s concerned about the answer. Some people—.”
Then a woman in the crowd shouted something about the Texas senator that not even Trump would repeat at first.
“She just said a terrible thing. You know what she said? Shout it out because I don’t want to say,” Trump said.
But when it still wasn’t clear what the woman was saying, Trump went ahead and repeated it, and jokingly warned the audience member not to say it again.
“You’re not allowed to say and I never expect to hear that from you again,” Trump said. “She said he’s a pussy.”
