During Tuesday night’s CNN town hall, Anderson Cooper asked Donald Trump about his latest contentious tweets. In case you haven't heard, one of Trump's tweets featured a photo of Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi Cruz. The Donald seemed to imply something about her looks when he captioned the photo: "A picture is worth a thousand words." 

The CNN town hall exchange started like this:

Trump: I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi. I thought it was fine. 
Cooper: Come on.
Trump: I thought it was fine! She’s a pretty woman.
Cooper: You’re running for president of the United States.
Trump: Excuse me. I didn’t start it. I didn’t start it.
Cooper: But sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of a five-year-old.
Trump: No it’s not.
Cooper: The argument of a five-year-old is “he started it.”
Trump: You would say that. That’s the problem with our country.
Cooper: Every parent knows a kid who says he started it.
Trump: That’s not a five-year-old.

Trump continued to fire back very Trump-like, defending his stance in a very childish manner and responding to Cooper like they were arguing on a playground.

Shortly afterwards, Trump focused his attention on Mitt Romney and made fun of him by saying that he was “choking like a dog” in his 2012 presidential bid.

Watch the exchange on CNN, below.

According to a study by The Globe, Donald Trump apparently speaks at a fourth grade level. So, it shouldn't really come as a surprise that the 69-year-old presidential candidate is using a five-year-old's excuses—just one of Trump's many prepubescent characteristics.
