Trump: Thanks! Just FYI, if you win I won’t do the same for you. I’ll run as a third-party candidate or endorse Hillary and donate to her as I’ve done before. And my registered Democrat kids will do the same.
Trump: I had my buddy at the National Enquirer make up a story about you cheating on your wife. I know it will never be proved out, but some people will believe it.
Trump: I told everyone that your dad killed JFK.
Trump: I attacked your wife and posted unflattering pictures of her.
Trump: It is spectacularly well documented that I’m a serial liar, but I’m going to call you “Lyin’ Ted” every chance I get and my low-information supporters will repeat it.
Trump: No, of course I won’t apologize for any of that!
Cruz: I changed my mind and will not directly recommend you for this job. That said, I won’t actively oppose you, either. I will encourage people to support freedom and conservative principles — so if that’s what you’re about, that would be an endorsement of you.
Trump: I can’t believe you didn’t give me a reference for this job! I knew you were a liar!
I was really happy with what Cruz said and did. I hope the country comes to its senses by 2020 – if it isn’t a pile of rubble by then.
Bonus: Historical facts!
- Cruz’s speech was approved by Trump and the RNC and he stuck to the script.
- He congratulated Trump.
- He said nothing negative about Trump.
- Trump’s vendetta against Cruz’s speech took all the focus off of Pence’s speech.
- Trump is still fighting conservatives and not Hillary.
