Mr. Cruz presents a canned, rehearsed speech in answer to Sean Hannity’s questions about how Donald Trump is bleeding delegates to Cruz – after primary elections wherein Trump has clearly won the popular vote. Don’t count Colorado. There was no popular vote for President taken here. All of the maneuvering by which Cruz swept all 34 Colorado delegates was done without a primary election and without even a non-binding straw poll. And it’s still a mystery how Trump got skunked without getting even one delegate. Not even one. So, we’re to believe that there was zero popular support for Donald Trump in Colorado. I see. Or, in the alternative, if there was any support for Donald Trump, it didn’t matter to the Colorado State GOP.
Hannity repeatedly asks Cruz to explain what the senator’s minions are telling Trump-pledged delegates from other states to get them to change their votes and abandon Trump after a first ballot at the August GOP Convention? What exactly is that process by which this is happening?
Cruz doesn’t answer that question. And he won’t answer it. In response he gives us the Trump is an idiot who is not capable of running a lemonade stand spiel.
That really clears things up.
This is the same Ted Cruz who put on a blustering Senate floor show-speech against giving Mr. Obama fast-tracking executive powers on foreign trade – and voted the very next day to give Mr. Obama fast-tracking executive powers on foreign trade.
Do not be fooled. Mr. Cruz is not the D.C. outsider he tells us he is. He is a D.C. George W. Bush insider.
And he was a natural-born Canadian citizen who only renounced his Canadian citizenship about two years ago.
We shall see how all of this plays out.
