Seriously, where’s the line when it comes to blind political allegiance? When does partisanship actually end, man? At some point, principle and moral compass should outweigh being part of a team. Especially if that team is headed in an insanely wrong direction. With that being said, Ted Cruz must not believe in anything I just wrote. After all of the personal disrespect he suffered at the hands of Donald Trump, Cruz is now backing Trump’s presidential campaign. All I know is, if Cruz doesn’t have any respect for himself, he can’t expect the public to have any respect for him either.
Now, where do I start, son? Oh, how about the time Trump compared Cruz’ wife to his own in an effort to insult her looks? Or how about the time he tweeted he was going to “spill the beans” on Cruz’ wife, whatever that means? Or how about the time Trump insinuated Cruz’ father was involved with the assassination of John F. Kennedy? Or how about the Lyin’ Ted moniker I’m using in the title of this post? Yup, that nickname was “birthed” by Trump too. Do I even need to continue here? Trump made it a mission to personally attack Cruz AND his family and Cruz is STILL endorsing him for president. I’m literally baffled by the lack of backbone here.
Look, Cruz is the same man who called Trump a “pathological liar.” He’s the same man who called Trump a “sniveling coward.” He’s the same man who said he’s “not in the habit of supporting people who attack [his] wife and attack [his] father.” Even at this year’s Republican National Convention, he told the audience to “vote [their] conscience” instead of flat out coming to Trump’s aid. After all of that, he’s STILL backing him, son. Now, if politics is a dirty game, then this must be the grimiest part of it. Apparently, a man can disgrace his opponent’s family and still have his support, son. In my eyes, Cruz is an absolutely pathetic human being.
In the end, I can’t respect any person who puts their political party above their own decency. Anybody with values wouldn’t accept the type of treatment Cruz is now choosing to ignore. Where I come from, if someone said half of the shit Trump consistently hurled at Cruz, there would be a fistfight on sight. Not only that, there would probably be a fistfight during every subsequent encounter. Ultimately, Cruz might’ve just buried his political career and that’s exactly what the coward deserves. Good day.
