Ted's Excellent Bromance With The Donald
Ted "I never miss an opportunity to make myself look foolish" Cruz fell all over himself praising The Donald for speaking the truth about those Messicans -- y'know being criminals and rapists and all that. (To be fair, The Donald did say he loves Messicans after he maligned the entire country and everyone living in it. That made his slander HO-kay. Plus he didn't mean just Mexico, he included all Latin Americans who come over our borders. And China! So there's that.) And isn't Donald's brazen audacity of dopiness exactly the quality certain people on the right (Hello New Hampshire Republicans!) think is what we Americans want in the person who will represent us -- all of us-- on the world's stage. Donald tells it like it is: He's cocky, he's bold in his relentless vilification of cultural groups, his hair is stylish, if dead animals on one's skull is your thing; he's been married three times and in bankruptcy four. What a treasure trove for the TeaPublicans! Lucky duckies!
Cruz: "I like Donald Trump. I think he’s terrific, I think he’s brash, I think he speaks the truth, And I think NBC is engaging in political correctness that is silly and that is wrong. He has a way of speaking that gets attention. And I credit him for focusing on an issue that needs to be focused on.”
You tell 'em Ted!
Donald's way of speaking certainly does get attention, but in this case it's not the sort of attention that a candidate for the presidency wants that will put him in "the zone."
From Addicting Information:
Trump seemed to be touched by Cruz’s defense, taking time of calling people “haters” and “losers” on Twitter to thank the senator. It was almost as if just a few months ago, Trump wasn’t trying to drum up support for the idea that Cruz himself is an ineligible alien.
“He’s got a hurdle that nobody else seems to have at this moment. It’s a hurdle and somebody could certainly look at it very seriously. He was born in Canada,” Trump said in an interview with myfoxny.com, adding that “you’re supposed to be born in this country.”
So that's the news for today.
Ted Cruz and Donald Trump: A weasel defending a jackass.
