"Ted Cruz was Ted Cruz. I think the technical term is scumbag. He is a really bad person....He is very dishonest, he is Lyin' Ted, there is no question...he was never going to keep his end of the deal. He didn't keep his pledge and when you give Ted Cruz a minute to change something, to make it more for Ted, he will take it every single time. If you walk away from the lunch table, he will steal your dinner rolls. This guy is bad people and his career is over."

---Former trump advisor Michael Caputo on Sen. Ted Cruz changing his GOP convention speech at the last minute

Former advisor to Donald Trump, Michael Caputo, joined Kilmeade & Friends in Cleveland where he discussed the controversy surrounding Ted Cruz's speech Wednesday night at the GOP convention, the continuing feud between Corey Lewandowski and Paul Manafort, what Trump must do to defeat Hillary Clinton in November, and the controversy over Melania Trump's speech.

Listen here:

Michael Caputo on Ted Cruz changing his speech after Trump saw it.

(CAPUTO) Ted Cruz was Ted Cruz. I think the technical term is scumbag. He is a really bad person. I have known him for years before he became a senator, I have worked against him on some legal issues, he is a very bad person. He is very dishonest, he is Lyin' Ted, there is no question. Mr. Trump summed him up perfectly, he was never going to keep his end of the deal. He didn't keep his pledge and when you give Ted Cruz a minute to change something, to make it more for Ted, he will take it every single time. If you walk away from the lunch table, he will steal your dinner rolls. This guy is bad people and his career is over.

Caputo on Corey Lewandowski and Paul Manafort

(CAPUTO) Corey Lewandowski was a horrible campaign manager. The worst decision Donald Trump ever made was hiring him. The best decision he ever made was getting rid of him. When he hired Paul Manafort 12 weeks ago, Paul Manafort who volunteered by the way, completely volunteered, Paul Manafort came in to make changes, Corey was stopping him, basically sabotaging everything Paul Manafort was doing for weeks and weeks and weeks. I know, I was there, I was right there watching him screw Paul Manafort every day and therefore, screwing his own candidate. So one he was able to shove Corey out of the way, fire him, summarily, everything started changing more rapidly. Corey Lewandowski was saying, 'Mr. Trump, you be yourself.' You can't win an election just being yourself. I don't care who you are.

(Kilmeade) Nobody can.

(CAPUTO) No you can't. Now you can win a primary by sheer force of will and personality if you're big like Donald Trump if you get 105% name I.D. in the country and get the money to pay for it, you can win a primary, you can't win a general.
