Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) accused Donald Trump of throwing a #Trumpertantrum for demanding a new caucus in Iowa after losing there Monday night. 

Does this mean Trump is acting like a whining child? At least one conservative voice seems to think so. 

Actor and former Nixon speechwriter Ben Stein called Trump a "big sulking baby" on Fox News.

When "Your World" host Neil Cavuto asked him to explain, Stein added: 

"This is just an opinion. I’m not a pediatrician, so I don’t really know what a big sulking baby is, but it seems to me that he is a person who cannot deal with even the slightest bit of frustration and that doesn’t, to me, bode well in a president of the United States. I'd like to see somebody with a little more solid character dealing with the problems we're going to have."

Stein said he has a "high opinion of the way [Trump] cuts through the political correctness crap," but isn't happy with how he handled losing in Iowa.

Editor's note: Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynistbirther and bully who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims -- 1.6 billion members of an entire religion -- from entering the U.S.
