Ted Cruz Channels ‘Flashdance’ in Response to Trump
What happens when a rival for the Republican nomination calls you a maniac on national television ? Why, pay homage to the 80’s classic dance flick “Flashdance.” In response to Donald Trump’s comments that Sen. Ted Cruz had poor judgment and couldn’t get along with others and was a “maniac,” Cruz flashed back to 1983-era Pittsburgh and the story of a plucky steelworker played by Jennifer Beals who danced her way out of the mills.
“In honor of my friend @realDonaldTrump and good-hearted #Maniacs everywhere” he tweeted, complete with the link to the YouTube video of the “Flashdance” dance sequence to the Michael Sembello song “Maniac.”
