Donald Trump isn't the only person tearing a rift in the Republican party. While much attention has been focused on the war between Trump's supporters and the #NeverTrump crowd, less attention has been paid to Ted Cruz's similar inability to unite the party.
Given the Senator's consistently conservative record, few likely predicted that the Texas Senator would be fending off attacks from the party's far right — yet that's precisely what's happening. The latest example of this lack of camaraderie between Cruz and the conservative base comes from an interview with right-wing media host Sean Hannity.
When Cruz dodged Hannity's question about the confusing primary process, Hannity launched into an angry rant against the second-place GOP contender that likely surprised many, given the media personality's consistently conservative leanings.
Donald Trump may not be building any bridges with the party establishment, but Cruz is having trouble courting even his base.
To see the exchange that ensured, continue reading on the next page:
Cruz is a dishonest person. Remember what he did to Carson and to Rubio. If that’s not been a slime ball I don’t know what is. The one and only thing he repeats like a trained parrot is criticize Trump instead of talking about what his plans are to bring jobs back, get the economy going, immigration where he has flipped flopped several times, foreign policy, terrorism, among other important issues.
So much for the VOICE of WE THE PEOPLE!
Buying delegate votes is corruption no matter how you slice it. The establishment bought Cruz an HilLIARy an the beat goes on. The U.S.A is like a third world nation ever since Bush stole election from Gore. Now Cruz steals from Trump. The beat goes on.
Hannity,you are wasting your time trying to talk to that dummy. He thinks everyone is below him. I turn you off when he is on your show…..Ted should remember, “If you lay down with a bunch of dogs, you will get fleas..but he won’t understand that. But he should understand that, he will be responsible for Clinton to be elected..
Try to keep him honest Sean.
The GOP needs to get behind the leader in the nomination process now to have a calm changing of the guards! Otherwise the GOP House and Senate will lose and we will vote for Trump anyway and if Trump loses then the Democrats win all the way around! Vote for Trump in 2016 to Make America Great Again!
Cruz is a lyin snake.
Douglas Holmes Truth be told Doug… I’ll stand with Ted Cruz if he is the nominee. I just don’t believe that he can beat Hillary in November. It’s a walk in the park for any republican candidate to win the red states but we’re going to have to win the purple and a blue state or two to pull this off. Cruz does not have the support of even moderate republicans. I don’t think he has the ability to win over Reagan Democrats either. As nutty as this sounds, Donald J. Trump will have total republican support from the far right to the far left of the republican party when push comes to shove because to republicans, the thought of Hillary in the White house is worse than covering themselves in maple syrup and laying down next to a fire ant hill. Donald J. Trump also has the ability to win over those purple and blue states (not all of them but enough of them) and that’s game over in November. The high unfavorable numbers shared by Hillary and Donald J. Trump are meaningless this year. Those unfavorable numbers are being misunderstood by pundits and everyone else including the media. The unfavorables are simply representative of the deep divisions that reside in our country today not just with the Anti Hillary and anti Trump camps but moreover with our entire population towards each other. Hillary best represents everything on God’s earth that people like us loathe and Trump best represents everything that the left loathes (although my left leaning friends hate Cruz even more than Trump). It’s a match up made in heaven (or hell) this year and the winners (left or right) will have complete$#%&[email protected]*of our country for the next 2-3 decades because the Supreme Court is up for grabs. Personally, I’d like Donald J. Trump as President and Ted Cruz as the replacement for Antonin Scalia. That’s where Ted belongs! A lifetime rigid hard$#%&[email protected]*constitutional originalist on the bench! You couldn’t possibly get a more perfect replacement for the late GREAT Antonin Scalia. Donald J. Trump is going to need all sorts of help to pull this off. He’s not a politician. His knowledge of the system and how to govern is shaky at best. His supporters understand that and yet it doesn’t matter to them. Why do you think that is? Furthermore, Trump supporters will view a 2nd ballot (or a multiple ballot) victory for Cruz, Kasich, or whatever white knight the party elites slip in the door as the election being stolen. Why do you think that is? Both answers are the same. For the most part, Trump supporters are blue collar type people that neither party speaks for anymore. That’s why Trump supporters don’t care. All they know is that HE is speaking for them and that’s all that matters. There is only one way to unite our party at this point and that is for Donald J. Trump to win this either before the convention or at it. Any other option will result in a loss in November because to Trump supporters, he is the only one speaking for them. To them losing in November matters little because they believe nobody gives a rat’s$#%&[email protected]*for them anyway. They won’t support anyone but Trump. We can’t win like that, so as much as this reality might suck to you, hold your nose my man and join the Trump Train! Choo choo!!
Cruz is a total lying mud slinging lowlife scum sucking nonhuman transgendered rat$#%&[email protected]*fucktard .
