‘Sniveling Coward’: The Internet Is Tearing Ted Cruz Apart For Groveling To Trump (TWEETS)

Well, Ted Cruz finally knuckled under and endorsed Donald Trump on Friday. Bet he threw up a little in his mouth (I know I just did) as he wrote this on his Facebook page:

“After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump.”

Ouch. Searching your conscience? I may be wrong but I seem to remember Trump saying some less-than-flattering things about your wife. Oh, yeah. I’m not wrong:

Must not have searched his conscience very hard. Next time, get into those little nooks and crannies. It’s amazing what can hide in those things! Like nasty remarks about your wife.

Thinking back to the Republican Convention last month, I seem to remember that Cruz never came out and endorsed Trump in his speech there. Some GOPers were very angry at Cruz because of this. One even physically attacked him, calling him a traitor. At the time, I actually admired Cruz a wee bit for standing up against Trump, the RNC and his party. Silly me.

Not only did Trump insult Mrs. Cruz, but he also went after Cruz’s father. According to Trump, Cruz the Elder was somehow involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

Trump, for his part, went back on what he had previously said about accepting an endorsement from Ted Cruz. Trump went ahead and flip-flopped accepted Cruz’s endorsement today, saying that he was “greatly honored” to do so.

As you might imagine, this turn-about on Cruz’s part did not sit well with his die-hard supporters. Joel Kurtinitis, who was Iowa co-chair for Cruz’s campaign, told NPR that Cruz has “nothing to gain” by endorsing Trump and that the endorsement “hangs Cruz’s conservative resistance out to dry.” Steve Deace, in the Conservative Review, called the endorsement “the worst political miscalculation of my lifetime.” He suspects that this will only cause #NeverTrump voters to “dig in their heels.”

That appraisal might not be far off. Over on Twitter, Cruz was being lambasted by disillusioned supporters and gleeful non-supporters alike. Together, they painted the picture that Ted Cruz will have to look at from now until… well, maybe forever:

My favorite:


Poor Ted. He’ll probably be sleeping in the guest room for a long time after endorsing the man who insulted his wife. He also may get stiffed for a Christmas present from Dad. But that’s what happens when you sell your family and your supporters out.

I’m not surprised, though. After Reince Priebus issued his ultimatum the other day, I figured Cruz would get on board the Trump train. After all, he is a very ambitious man. And we all know that ambition will roll over everything in its path. Even family.
