Well, this is awkward. Republican front-runner Donald Trump praised Democratic strategist Maria Cardona a few moments ago on his timeline for comments she made this morning on ABC’s “This Week” suggesting he’ll be the GOP nominee, but it looks like Trump missed all of the nasty things she’s said about him in the past.
First up, here’s what Trump tweeted at around 8:30 tonight:
Now, here’s the transcript from the show where Cardona says Trump will be the nominee:
CARDONA: Well, exactly. And so what I was going to say is probably this cycle, more than any other, what the media says doesnt matter. And in fact, could hurt a candidate in this primary process.

She’s right today but not on November 13?
