You’re Ted Cruz. You’re still on Donald Trump’s team, even though he insulted your wife and accused your father of murdering JFK. Trump’s toxic unpopularity and worsening delusional behavior is dragging you down with him, but because no one else in politics likes you, you’re still sticking with him – even on the night “Obamagate” imploded.
After Donald Trump inexplicably declassified a Susan Rice email that proves President Obama handled the Michael Flynn case properly, Ted Cruz tweeted this nonsense: “Wow. Ongoing spying from an outgoing POTUS on the incoming POTUS—directed by Obama himself—is unprecedented in the 243 years of our nation’s history.”
Everyone quickly piled on, telling Ted Cruz precisely where to shove it. Former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi pointed out that Trump’s stunt had backfired on him. Patricia Arquette took a dig at Trump: “I prefer Presidents who care about National Security.” Adam Parkhomenko said this: “remember, Ted, it wasn’t President Obama who told the whole world your wife is ugly, you pathetic kiss ass.” Ted Cruz is having a really had night.
