Ted Cruz Is Phone-Banking For Donald Trump

Could you imagine endorsing a man who actually tweeted this about your own wife?

Twitter

WHAT DOES THIS EVEN MEAN?

You took an unflattering picture of Heidi Cruz, Ted Cruz's wife, an investment manager at Goldman Sachs and compared her (based only on her physical appearance) to a nice photo of Trump's third wife, Melania Trump, a former model?

Because, you know, if I were to vote for anyone, you know my rule of thumb...

Vote for whoever has the hottest wife.

(That joke itself is crass.)

I'm not a Ted Cruz supporter by any means, but when he took a stand and refused to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention, I gotta admit... I was a bit impressed.

Cruz said,

I am not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife and attacks my father.

Also, on top of attacking Cruz's wife, Trump said that Cruz's father was involved with the assassination of JFK, which is just as ridiculous.

But now, we are so close to the election! So, Cruz endorsed the man who straight-up attacked his family.

Honestly, the only way I would turn on my family is if I was offered like, eh, not even that much money. Just pay off my student loans. Sorry momsie and popsicle, you understand.

Cruz wrote his endorsement on Facebook. It read:

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… A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honoring that commitment. And if you don't want to see a Hillary Clinton presidency, I encourage you to vote for him.

Now, not only has Cruz endorsed Trump, he's manning the phone for him.

Well, Cruz... you held on for as long as you could to your dignity.
