Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is going after Glenn Beck for throwing his support behind GOP primary rival Ted Cruz, calling the conservative activist a “wacko” and a “lost soul.”

{mosads}Trump also said his endorsement from 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin trumps Cruz’s endorsement from Beck.

“Wacko [Glenn Beck] is a sad answer to the [Sarah Palin] endorsement that Cruz so desperately wanted,” Trump said in a tweet on Thursday. “Glenn is a failing, crying, lost soul!”

Beck announced on Tuesday that he would campaign with Cruz on Saturday in Iowa.

A longtime opponent of Trump, the Tea Party icon said he was disappointed in Palin’s decision to endorse the billionaire businessman.

“I couldn’t disagree with her more but she has played the game now for years,” Beck wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday. “Perhaps she knows more than those of us still on the outside.”
