A must-watch video from MSNBC’s Last Word w/Lawrence O’Donnell show is the best argument yet for not voting for Cruz. The video captures snippets of Cruz and Trump viciously throwing personal attacks at each other during the height of the 2016 Republican presidential nomination contest.
The full MSNBC’s Last Word segment is available here but the relevant clip is below
Unlike many traditional campaigns where candidates spar with each other over policy differences, the Cruz v Trump contest was clearly a fight between two people who genuinely hated each other and went out of their way to express in public their real loathing for each other.
Cruz for example said about Trump:
“This man[Trump] is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth .”
“The man is utterly amoral, morality does not exist for him.”
“We are liable to wake up one morning and Donald if he were President, would have nuked Denmark.”
Now Ted Cruz, desperate not to lose his senate seat to Dem challenger Beto O’Rourke, is calling on the “utterly amoral”, Denmark-nuking, “pathological liar” Trump to come campaign for him in Texas. Don’t forget Trump also said some disparaging things about Ted Cruz’s wife and father.
How can any Texas voter ever trust that Ted Cruz is a principled leader capable of drawing a line in the sand to protect the interests of Texans in the U.S. senate? If Ted Cruz is not man enough to stand up for his own wife and father, how can we trust him to stand up for the Lone Star State? Seriously folks, if you resort to begging someone you sincerely believe is an “utterly amoral”, ” pathological liar” who also insulted your wife and father to campaign for you, you have no principles and certainly don’t belong in the U.S. Senate.
Bottom line Texans deserves a strong principled leader to represent the state in the U.S. Senate. The choice is very clear–Beto O’Rourke!!
