Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were bitter rivals during the Republican primaries. Trump went extremely hard against Cruz and his family. Trump nicknamed Cruz “Lyin Ted.”
The current Republican presidential candidate questioned the legality of Cruz running for president of the United States because he was born in Canada, despite Ted being a U.S. citizen because his mother is an American.
Trump insinuated that Ted’s dad may have had something to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and Donald insulted Ted’s wife, comparing the looks of Heidi Cruz to Melania Trump.
With all that animosity between the two adversaries, you would understand that Ted Cruz would never support Donald Trump despite both being Republicans. However, here you see Ted Cruz working the phones and encouraging people to get out and vote for Donald J. Trump in a video titled “the final humiliation.”
Ted Cruz didn’t eat a slice of humble pie, Ted Cruz ate all the humble pies.
When you despise your political party’s presidential nominee, but want to be able to run for president in 2020 in the same political party.
Cruz even boasted support for Trump on his Facebook. Cruz commended Mike Pence for his “strong performance” in the presidential debate. And while he did not mention Trump by name, he did subtweet support for Donald by saying the country “cannot afford a third term of President Obama, and Clinton-Kaine would only continue the disastrous policies of the last eight years.”
Somebody give Ted Cruz a hug right now.
