Ted Cruz’s Antics at the RNC Are ABSOLUTELY Disgusting!

Ted Cruz

Remember during the first debate when all the Republicans in the primary were asked if they would pledge their support to the eventual Republican nominee? The only person who said they wouldn’t was Donald Trump – earning him a round of boos and criticism from the other candidates.

And look what actually happened. Donald Trump is the nominee – and Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz haven’t endorsed him. In fact, only one of those candidates listed bothered to even attend the Republican National Convention: Ted Cruz. He spoke… and still refused to endorse Trump.

Ted Cruz walked onto the stage here Wednesday night to a standing ovation, but left to deafening boos. It was the strangest, most surreal sequence of a Republican convention that has been defined by disorderly proceedings and dreamlike speeches from an odd collection of established politicians, conservative activists, and quasi-celebrities.

“I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night,” he said mere moments into his remarks, earning booming applause from an audience that seemed to anticipate a forthcoming endorsement of the presumptive nominee. Instead, it was the only time Cruz mentioned Trump’s name in what was easily the day’s most anticipated speech.
“We deserve leaders who stand for principle, unite us all behind shared values, cast aside anger for love. That is the standard we should expect from everybody,” Cruz said. As the arena began to buzz, Cruz delivered two fateful lines. First: “And to those listening, please, don’t stay home in November.” The audience erupted with applause, clearly expecting an endorsement of Trump. Instead, Cruz then added: “Stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”
Sections of the crowd began to boo loudly: “Vote your conscience” was the rallying cry of the anti-Trump mutiny that tried and failed to re-write the GOP’s rules and oust him as the party’s nominee. Cruz’s words, intentionally or not, seemed to salute those rebels — and Trump’s supporters inside the convention hall weren’t having it.

    FIRST AND UNDERHANDEDLY, TED CRUZ POSTED A PHOTO OF MELANIA TO TRY AND TAKE DOWN TRUMP AND IT BACKFIRED ON CRUZ. TRUMP RETALIATED BY POSTING A PHOTO OF CRUZ’S WIFE NEXT TO A BEAUTIFUL MELANIA PHOTO.

    CRUZ USED TRUMP’S PLATFORM TO BUILD HIMSELF UP! THIS BACKFIRED ON CRUZ ALSO. WHEN IS CRUZ GOING TO GET IT? TRUMP’S ENEMIES HAVE AND STILL ARE ALL FALLING AT TRUMP’S SIDE….. AS IT SHOULD BE!

    CRUZ SHOWED AMERICA THAT HE IS SELF-SERVING AND HAS BEEN IN IT FOR HIMSELF ALL THE WAY THROUGH. BY CONTRAST, TRUMP IS IN IT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ALL THE WAY THROUGH. WE LOVE DONALD TRUMP! HE IS THE RIGHT MAN FOR PRESIDENT. TRUMP 2016

    Cruz will soon run out of bridges to burn. He has managed to turn most of the Senators against him and now millions of people as well. If they hold a grudge as he does he will never be elected to a position in government again.

    Throughout his run as a presidential candidate we all kept hearing how smart he is and then we find out he is not and does not deserve to be president. What he did Wednesday night was a long way from presidential. It was childish at least.

    Instead of paving the way for him to be elected sometime in the future he has taken himself totally out of the picture. Consequently if he runs again in the future it may be completely in vain.

    Trump led Cruz down the primrose path.
    Give a cowboy enough rope and they will hang themselves.

    1. Arizona Don says:

      I may take exception about giving a cowboy enough rope and him hanging himself but Cruz sure did. He sure proved his ignorance in front of millions of people. Looks like he cooked his own goose. Donald had to do nothing except give him the chance. I wonder who is the smartest now Ted?

      Guess it is a good thing I’m not a cowboy, I’d likely be hung by now!

  4. Terence says:

    Ted Cruz did the right thing. You don’t bow to a man that smeared your campaign, insulted your wife called you a liar, and claimed that your father was mixed up in the JFK assassination. Cruz did the right thing.

  5. E L says:

    So you are admitting that Trump is not a Constitution Supporting Conservative? That’s the only way you can’t see what Cruz said as an endorsement

  6. Sal says:

    Just goes to show, those Rinos all signed the promise to support the eventual nominee because each of them thought it would be them. The only one who had the balls to say that he wouldn’t was Donald Trump. So look who ended up winning while every single one of those Rinos went back on their word because it didn’t suit them personally. They don’t care that they promised america, they don’t care that they made a pledge, they don’t care that they signed an agreement. All they cared about was what’s in it for them. Now how do you think these Rinos would govern? Think they would have YOUR best interest at heart or their own? What this tells me is that we nominated the right guy. The guy with balls enough to tell the truth even when it’s not popular, to make things happen even if it’s on his own dime and to stand up and say no when he means no, even if its not popular. That’s the kind leader we need. One with integrity, fortitude and backbone. That man is Donald Trump. Make America great again….because it’s time to separate the wheat from the chaff….RINOS….you’re done. Bring on the real patriots.

    Ted Cruz once again proved that he is a selfish , petty man that is far from being a true Christian regardless of how many times he is called that by his Daddy or by pastors that want to call prophecy over him while trying to convince their church that he is the new Messiah. Cruz can talk. We all know that he is a good speaker. But what some of the Texas crowd fail to want to understand is that regardless of his being” their native son”, and” having a beef about words said by Donald Trump about Cruz’s wife and Daddy”, Ted Cruz was unkind and un Christian to a fellow Republican who is a great Christian and has been a good friend to Cruz-Mr. Mike Pence . Also, Donald J. Trump was attacked by Ted Cruz first. A well known fact and Mr. Trump seems to have risen above it. Teddy just saw that crowd of people and said to himself, they should all be hear for me and not for him, so he began to again weave his lies. He lied to the GOP afterward by saying that ” everyone knew what he planned to say, and he just couldn’t really say an endorsement to a man that insulted his wife and Daddy”. Ted Cruz is a snake and I thank GOD he didn’t get this nomination. DOnald J. Trump is a good man and will be a great Leader for this nation.

  8. Robert says:

    CRUZ succeeded in proving to the people just how small and petty he is as a person. His actions should prove to the people that he would act the same way as president. If another country said something he didn’t like he would throw a Temper tantrum.!!

  9. Roger says:

    Is anyone really surprised….ALL those mentioned are staunch establishment and a big part of the problem and their endorsement really isn’t necessary I believe for Trump to win….

  10. Brian says:

    While the content defining the objectives f the Republican party were spot on his commitment to them is a bad joke. He, like all RINOS gives lip service to the concepts and principles upon which our Constitutional Republic is founded but, when the chips are down and it is time to perform by action not words. he and all the other failed candidates show their TRUE purpose. Business as usual in the utterly Corrupt EASTABLISHMENT republican party who have made the assumption that no matter what happens, it WILL be business as usual. The parasites could not be more WRONG and, that is what they simply will not acknowledge; that American citizens have had enough of leftist lunacy, promoted racial strife, demonization of law enforcement , attacks on our first and second Amendment rights which puts all those criminally complicit Congress cretins in the position of BEING malfeasant in office, derelict in duty, failing to live up to their duties and obligations to those American citizens, violation of their oaths of office from top to bottom of the most inept, un-American Administration in our national history. They ALL belong in prison , not office and the circus that freed Hillary Clinton from responsibility and accountability for her stupidity, incompetence and outright treachery exemplifies and bears out that contention.. This election WILL decide whether we remain a free and independent state in sovereign, control of our own destiny, or a vassal state subject to oppression by the U.N. and Agenda 21. which will be nearly immediately imposed; taking everything from us and controlling every aspect of YOUR lives and those of your PROGENY for GENERATIONS to come!` THAT is what the left is ALL ABOUT and WHY this election is the most important in American history. Cruz is an old school lip service skunk as are a majority often so acting in BOTH parties so,. we need to Vote Trump IN and every incumbent in BOTH parties OUT as they ARE the overall problem. This president could NEVER have used Executive Order and claimed presidential privilege as he has without their failure to act as intended by the Founding Fathers as a check and balance on the Executive branch to prevent what has been happening in this country since 2008. THAT is the truth and anyone looking for it who is educated , not indoctrinated, will see and acknowledge that! Those who were not, will not because they have been conditioned in the public school systems NOT TO.; and, it will get much worse if Hillary Clinton is ever made president. period.

    Who let the rat in the building….

    1. Wayne says:

      Actually, it was Trump that let him in. Donald had asked him to speak and he read the speech beforehand, so Donald let him have his way, and I don’t blame him. He let him come in and with his own mouth, he ended his political career. How he thought that this would go is what amazes me. He really thought that he could just go in and everything would be fine. He found out differently real quick. Being booed was bad enough, but he was turned away from the millionaire’s box, almost got his ass beat, his wife throws a hissy fit and gets escorted out also, Ted loses 100,000 Facebook fans in 20 seconds, and he has his Republican credentials revoked. Wow. When you change Ted, you really change! Have a nice day Ted!

      1. Steve says:

        Sorry Wayne but you are wrong about what was said and no credentials were revoked. Your reading comprehension is sorely lacking. Kind of revokes your credentials. At the Texas delegates breakfast this morning Ted was greeted with applause and cheers. He made it plain that he did not endorse Trump because of the vile way Trump attacked his wife and his father. You also forget Trump refused to pledge to endorse the GOP nominee at the beginning of the primaries and was booed for it. At the ‘Q’ last night, during Teds speech, Trump whips fomented the delegates into booing Ted at the end of the speech. It was orchestrated as a slight to Cruz after he agreed not to push for a floor delegate roll call in exchange for giving the speech with out his endorsement. Trump was aware of the speech beforehand and the former speakers remarks were also scripted beforehand. So the impromptu ‘save’ by the speaker was not as spontaneous as they would have us believe.

    2. Terence says:

      He’s not a rat. Why do people let the TV set influence their opinions? Cruz would have been the best choice, but the people got played again.
