What a cruel twist of fate.
Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has taken another hostage.
We all remember the look on Chris Christie’s face when he endorsed Trump for president back in March—a solemn, vacant plea that seemed to suggest that he might not see his children again if he didn’t read exactly what was on the teleprompter.
Now the campaign appears to have broken Ted Cruz of his will as well.
A still of Cruz working a phone bank Thursday for the Republican Party in Texas is swiftly making the rounds. It perfectly captures the cruel twists of fate of the 2016 election.
As you’ll recall, Cruz was one of Trump’s harshest critics. He held out on endorsing him for months, even on the stage of the Republican National Convention, and Trump has suggested that Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and that he’d “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife.
On the plus side, Trump appears to have finally stopped referring to him as “Lying Ted.” Now he’s #CruzCrewontheTrumpTrain.
Honestly, I don’t know which is worse.
