I’m told we need to unify the Republican party. I don’t care because I’m no longer a member. But those of you who think so might want to get the message to one Donald J. Trump.
“But when I watched her [Hillary Clinton’s] speech last night it was so sad, because everything she said was, like, a lie,” he said later. “I wonder if I could start, instead of saying ‘Crooked Hillary,’ which is a very accurate description, I wonder if I could say — you know, remember lyin’, lyin’ — I won’t say ‘Lyin Ted’ — I refuse to say it.”
“Lyin’ Ted,” Mr. Trump said. “Holds that Bible high, puts it down and then he lies. Lyin’ Ted. Well, I’m going to retire that from Ted — I’m not going to call Ted that anymore.
Isn’t that nice. He’s going to retire it, even as he repeats it three times.
Those who very much believed in Ted Cruz who are still Republicans are going to be pretty alienated by this kind of crap. They may decide to join those of us who have left the party. Heckuva job, dipstick.
P.S. Cruz is hardly the only Republican Trump has been criticizing lately. He’s hit Susana Martinez, Mitt Romney, and Jeb Bush, among others. But he’s still praising Vladimir Putin.
I respect Putin. He’s a strong leader, I can tell you that. Not like what we have.
What’s the difference? Martinez, Romney, Bush, and Cruz have all criticized him. Putin praised him. It’s really that simple with this idiot. And yes. He is an idiot. Any guy running for President who never heard of the Gang of Eight bill is an uninformed idiot. Period. End of story.
