For a while there, it seemed like Ted Cruz had a backbone. He refused to endorse Donald Trump, even telling those at the Republican National Convention to “vote your conscience”.
During the primaries, Cruz called Trump out as “utterly amoral” and “serial philandering,” “pathological liar,” who was a “sniveling coward” for attacking his wife. And during the Republican National Convention, Cruz notably declined to endorse Trump on the stage, instead telling delegates to vote their conscience.
Well, Ted has changed his mind. I am guessing that Cruz wants to run again for president, and the RNC told him the only way that would happen was if he endorsed Trump.
“After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump,” Cruz wrote on his Facebook page.
Well, as Twitter is wont to do…they had a field day with Cruz’s change of heart:
If Cruz actually endorses Trump, TesTed should be replaced w CastraTed in 2020

The good news about Ted Cruz's endorsement of Trump is we can all go back to recognizing that Cruz is the world's worst human.

Ted Cruz would publicly call Heidi ugly himself if he thought it would help him get elected president.
