In case you don’t recognize the names in the title of this piece, Heidi Cruz is the wife of Senator Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz (R-TX). Rafael Cruz is Ted’s father.
For the record, I don’t think Senator Cruz’s father had anything to do with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, nor do I think Heidi Cruz is an eyesore.
Those were both attacks leveled at Senator Cruz by his opponent and then primary candidate, Donald J. Trump.
About Trump, Cruz said, “If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.”
An unlikely foundation for a Cruz-Trump bromance. You can read a partial list of insults Cruz and Trump traded by clicking HERE.
Politics makes strange bedfellows, but some of Trump’s Never Trump bed mates have been head spinning, pee pee tape notwithstanding.
Trump’s nickname for Senator Cruz was “Lyin’ Ted.” While the magnitude of irony may have been lost on Trump, he may have been on to something.
Cruz recently went on a “Build the Wall” tour with his new BFF, appearing at the boarder in McCallen, TX, all decked out in his new beard.
Cruz, who once called Trump a “sniveling coward” is now Trump’s wingman.
The odd couple appeared in Texas to highlight the need for a wall. They forgot to mention that tunnels have been discovered beneath that wall.
According to the head Border Patrol agent, “They’re always tunneling somewhere.” Unlike Manhattan, there is no bedrock upon which to build a skyscraper on the Rio Grande. Or even a lowly 30-foot wall.
Asked about the most recent Trump-Russia bombshell (I don’t remember which one it is), Cruz was quick to point out that Trump has been much tougher on Russia than Obama.
This is where we come back Trump’s “Lyin’ Ted” moniker. The speed with which Ted was able to hop on Trump’s lie train is breathtaking.
It’s a marvel of irony and hypocrisy.
The facts however, belie their claim. Donald Trump may be the best president Russia ever had. Click HERE for a glimpse.
Just yesterday, Democratic senators-along with 11 defecting Republicans-failed to stop Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s guy at Treasury from lifting sanctions on Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch and one of Putin’s closest allies.
If Vladimir Putin had a Christmas shopping list, then Donald Trump has been his Santa Claus. Trump has acted almost exclusively to further the interests of Russia and Vladimir Putin.
I challenge anyone to think of one single thing that Trump has done in the interest of the American people.
Filling the federal judiciary with conservative judges doesn’t count. Whether or not you, yourself are a conservative, you have to recognize that these judges serve the interests of conservatives, not the American people at large.
Everything Trump does is only for a very select group. From so-called tax cuts to defunding the Affordable Care Act to the shutdown, it is all about Trump, Russia and the Trumpsters.
The only nation that has benefited as a whole from the Trump presidency has been Russia. And that’s a fact.
