The Jury Talks Back


Did Trump Apologize to Heidi Cruz Last Night?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 8:15 am

Last night Ted and Heidi Cruz had dinner with Donald and Melania Trump. Ted Cruz tweeted this morning:

Not addressed: whether Donald Trump apologized to Heidi Cruz for this tweet, which remains on Donald Trump’s Twitter timeline to this day:

Yesterday a reporter asked Sean Spicer if Trump planned to apologize for that tweet — or for suggesting that Ted Cruz’s dad was involved with the Kennedy assassination. Spicer pointedly did not answer the question:

I’m guessing there was no apology.

  1. Ditto no apology. Trump doesn’t believee in forgiveness.

  2. There was a practical reason for this dinner. Cruz is looking for a post within the administration or a shot at Ginsburg’s seat. Possibly there is some prize Cruz wishes to bring home to Texas. I do note that a buddy of Cruz’ was selected as Solicitor General a couple of days ago.

  3. Why can’t Cruz be warming up to Trump for the same reasons I am? Namely, his conservative appointments, executive orders, and bills he has signed, things that Cruz would also have done (possibly more competently, certainly less loudly, and definitely with even more opposition from the Left).

  4. Maybe Cruz is helping Trump see the benefit of the conservative position on healthcare and other issues.

  5. Of course, Trump is easy to influence so this may not last long.

  6. We can guess that Cruz might have talked to Trump about a way to get around reconciliation. Are Trump and Pence man enough to try it?
