Ted Cruz really is a piece of work. He took office in 2012 during the Tea Party wave that sent a lot of really awful politicians to Washington. The Tea Party Republicans have done so much damage to this country that the costs are too high to count, and Ted Cruz has been one of their main leaders. He’s a troublemaker and agitator that has done nothing good for anyone. During the 2016 Republican presidential primary Cruz and Donald Trump traded childish barbs like a couple of grade school students.

Trump made fun of Cruz’s wife’s appearance, insinuated that his father was involved in the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy and said he didn’t think he was a good Christian because he lies so much. In fact Trump even gave him the nickname Lyin’ Ted which has stuck with him ever since.
How can Ted Cruz be an Evangelical Christian when he lies so much and is so dishonest?

Cruz came back and said that Trump is a sniveling coward, utterly amoral, a pathological liar, and a serial philanderer (he really hit the nail on the head with that one). After he dropped out of the race, Cruz even refused to endorse Trump for the Republican nomination.
But oh how times have changed, because even with all the bad things Cruz has said about Trump, he’s agreed to write an essay praising Trump as part of Time Magazine’s series on the most influential people in the world.
‘President Trump is a flash-bang grenade thrown into Washington by the forgotten men and women of America. The fact that his first year as Commander in Chief disoriented and distressed members of the media and political establishment is not a bug but a feature.
‘While pundits obsessed over tweets, he worked with Congress to cut taxes for struggling families.’
Cruz has also given Trump credit for bringing jobs and industries back to our shores, and putting Kim Jong Un back on his heels. I guess Cruz didn’t realize that our economy was getting better before Trump got elected, and that Kim Jong Un agrees to denuclearize every ten years or so like clockwork…as long as he receives enough money to do so.
Cruz sure looks like the butt of the joke this time. Giving all this praise to someone he thinks is amoral, a coward and a liar, proves Cruz has no scruples and will stop at nothing to suck up to Trump.
