Oh, how times have changed. During the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, Donald Trump turned Ted Cruz into a whipping boy. Debate after debate, Trump saved some of his ugliest rumors and vicious attacks on the Texas senator, but now that Cruz’s Republican seat in the Senate is in jeopardy, Trump is doing a complete 180 on his feelings toward Cruz. It’s almost as if Trump, his administration, and the Republican Party are growing concerned.

They’re smart to be worried. In a district that Trump won in 2016, in a state Trump won by nine points and which has not elected a Democrat for senator since 1988, polls show Cruz and his challenger, Beto O’Rourke, in a dead heat.

Trump’s pronouncements of “complete and total” support for Cruz is not surprising since Trump definitely has a vested interest in keeping the Senate red if he expects to avoid impeachment before he completes his term, but it’s also ironic after a year and a half of primary election rhetoric in which Trump accused Cruz’s father of being involved in the assassination of JFK, Cruz’s wife of being mentally unstable and unattractive, and Cruz himself of having multiple extramarital affairs.

All of these stories were printed in The National Enquirer, a publication with which Trump has recently been revealed as having long-time ties to due to his friendship with its CEO and editor, Allen Weisselburg. On Thursday, news broke that Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen attempted to buy decades worth of dirt that the magazine had against Trump. Weisselburg was recently granted immunity to cooperate with investigators against Trump and Cohen.

Yet Ted Cruz, who tried for one night to take a stand against the man who had so maligned his family, caved quickly afterward and now will appear alongside that man on a rally stage in Texas, smiling and shilling for votes while burying his principles and his dignity in his backyard alongside his spine.

Twitter was quick to remind Trump of those earlier days. Read some of their comments below:
