Ted Cruz Mocked Republicans Who Suck Up To Trump And You Know What Happened Next
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) mocked Republicans clinging to Donald Trump, and critics couldn't handle the irony.
"Just once would I like to see a Republican candidate stand up in a primary and say, 'I'm a moderate crusher of the establishment. I stand for absolutely nothing.” It would be refreshingly honest, at least. But nobody says that,” Cruz said during a campaign rally for Pennsylvania Senate GOP nominee David McCormick this week. Trump has endorsed McCormick's main race rival Mehmet Oz.
"And by the way, they all pledge their love for Donald Trump," he continued. "'I love Donald Trump,' 'No, no. I love Donald Trump more.” “No, no, no. I have Donald Trump tattooed on my butt.'”
A man in the audience shouted, "Let's see."
"I like you, but not that much," Cruz replied in a video shared by The Recount.
Twitter users reminded Cruz of his own nod to Trump, even after the former president insulted the Texas Republican's wife and spread conspiracy theories about his father.

@SenTedCruz What an absolutely despicable person and hypocrite. He's kissed Trump's ring and lied for him so many times I'm surprised his nose isn't 20 feet long. Ole Ted was okay with Trump insulting his wife. SMH https://t.co/csmw5Bm7mH
