Ted Cruz gets booed off stage for not endorsing Donald Trump.

Did you see Trump enter the walk into the convention center there at the end, so that he could revel in Cruz's embarrassment?

In fact Trump tweeted that he knew what Cruz was up to right after the speech.
You know pundits always talk about Cruz's intelligence and political acumen but it is pretty clear he got played here.

Courtesy of The Daily Wire:  

According to the source, the entire Cruz speech was cleared by the Trump campaign. Paul Manafort, Trump’s campaign manager, expressly approved the speech at 4:30 PM ET. The source, who was standing on the convention floor at the time of the speech, said that Trump operatives were present, urging the crowd to boo. “This was orchestrated by the Trump campaign to make Senator Cruz a pariah within the party,” said the source.

Tex Cruz disgusts me like no other human has for quite some time, so I cannot feel sorry for him, however it is unfortunate that the crowd turned on his wife as well.
Yeah, Cruz's political future looks a little iffy at the moment.

Even if Trump loses (And he will!) he is going to make damn sure that Cruz swims with the fishes politically.

    Cruz Refuses To Back Down... I’m Not ‘A Servile Puppy Dog’... Trump Broke Loyalty Pledge ‘The Day This Became Personal’... ‘I’m Not In The Habit Of Supporting People Who Attack My Wife And My Father’

      He's not in the habit of supporting others to attack his wife and dad.......
      Yeah, that's HIS job and he'll decide when that needs to happen.
      Don't forget this guy is an avowed 'spanker' (child beater). Bet he won't let anyone else beat his kids, either. Why should someone else get to have all the fun?

      I can't stand Cruz, BUT I agree with him in this case. I would not endorse someone who insulted by wife and father either.

      Trump acts like his manly looking wife, who is looking more and more like Caitelyn Jenner is all that.

      Trump insulted almost every opponent in that primary contest.

      He so much as compared Ben Carson to a pedophyle, but Carson like a true Uncle Tom is by his side and has endorsed him.

      He reduced Marco Rubio to Little Marco, but Rubio like a self loathing idiot endorsed him anyway.

    I don't know, Trump and Cruz are quite a match for one another. Ted will have the last laugh if Trump loses and in 4 years could be positioned to be the GOP nominee. They're both very smart in a conniving, Machiavellian kind of way. I'm loving every bit of this latest dustup.

    1. Gryph, I started a comment and my computer went wonky, so am rewriting this. Just in case you somehow get the first partial comment.

      I think that if Cruz tries for the Presidency in 4 years, the whole issue of his citizenship might just come up. I despised the birthers who claimed Obama was born in Kenya, but that was obviously ridiculous. Cruz admits being born in Canada. He was shown a Consular Report of Birth Abroad and said he didn't need one, because his mother was American.

      His father was Cuban, and I believe he became Canadian. Either way there is no possibility of passing on American citizenship to offspring.

      Cruz's mother was American who, at the time of his birth, had renounced American citizenship and become Canadian. At the time, Canada did not allow dual citizenship. That meant she was no longer American. (No problem with that. Lots of fine people in Canada.)

      However, his mother being Canadian- and she was, she accessed Canadian healthcare and voted in Canadian elections- at the time of his birth DOES throw Cruz's citizenship into question.

      If Cruz's mother was American at the time of his birth, then it was her responsibility to take the infant with all relevant documents (her own ID, her own passport, a copy of her birth certificate, etc., along with the infant's birth certificate and anything else that might be relevant) to the nearest consular office, or the U.S. Embassy, and obtain a Consular Report of Birth Abroad. By Cruz's own admission, that did not happen.

      Cruz just might be a tad worried that he's not eligible for either the Presidency, or the Senate seat he currently holds. And wouldn't THAT be interesting?

    Republicans Flip Out After Cruz Refuses To Endorse Trump
    They’re calling him “awful” and “selfish.

    Ted Cruz Buries the Hatchet — In Donald Trump's Back -

    ...But if the Trump campaign really thought Cruz had forgotten about the way Trump had treated his father and his wife (when Trump tweeted out an unflattering picture of her next to his supermodel wife, Melania), they were wrong.

    And if the Trump campaign believed an endorsement was coming from Cruz, they haven't been paying attention.

    Since the day Cruz dropped out of the presidential campaign, it has been clear that his fight was only just beginning. Over the past several months, he has revamped his Washington operation to look a lot more like a White House-in-Waiting than a consolation prize.

    He has hired a David Polyansky, a top adviser in the campaign, as his Senate chief of staff. He's also launching two political non-profits "to promote conservative principles," widely seen as laying the ground work for policies and messages for his next presidential run.

    1. Anonymous8:31 AM

      I think Donald Trump knew Ted Cruz would never endorse him (they've been enemies for too long) and 'allowed' him to be a speaker strictly for the entertainment he could make out of it.

      Trump did that by making a grand entrance toward the end of Ted's speech and sitting with his family members, bringing that hateful group of Americans to their feet and screaming horrible things to and at Cruz!

      The crowd acted out Trump's bidding and it was ridiculous to watch and hear!

      Their Convention was a disaster in the minds of most Americans. I know they did not represent me!

      Vote for Hillary Clinton! She has my vote hands down!

    Cruz will come out of this ahead of Trump. I can't stand to even look at Cruz but he is correct about not endorsing someone who maligns his family. Some things are more important than politics. I can't wait for Trump's downfall. He is an evil mentally ill person.

      I wouldn't endorse or vote for someone who insulted by family, either.

      That is the kind of guy Trump wants on his team, or as Attorney General, for his Administration should he be elected.

      Don't know about you, but that scares the Hell out of me.

      Christy was also deplorable as to how he handled his speech at the Convention concerning Hillary Clinton.

      Wouldn't Chris Christie love to be named Attorney General so he could stop all inquiries into Bridgegate. And the conflict of interest wouldn't bother him one bit I'm sure since like Trump he thinks the laws should be changed to suit him.

      I think that Ted Cruz's non- endorsement action at the Republican Convention will enhance his political career as time moves along - especially when Trump loses his bid for POTUS!

  9. Anonymous6:34 AM

    As the speech entered its closing stages, Cruz had completely lost the crowd. Screams of “endorse” came from the rafters. John Antoniello, the Chairman of the Staten Island GOP, helped lead them.

    “It didn’t seem to me he was ever going to say it,” Antoniello told The Huffington Post. Antoniello said he “cheated” by looking back at the TelePrompTer visible behind him, under the camera riser, and “could see he wasn’t saying it.”

    And so he started chanting louder: “Endorse Trump.”

    If the situation wasn’t chaotic enough, it rose a level higher in that moment. In an act of pure showmanship, the room’s eyes turned back to that Trump booth. The candidate had perfectly timed his entrance to take away attention from his former primary foe.

    Cruz had been upstaged while standing on the stage.

    ...The Texas senator is naturally positioned to emerge from the wake of a Trump electoral defeat, should that loss transpire. He won the second most delegates during the 2016 primary, and as the most high-profile conservative in the party, he gives GOP voters a chance to move on from a Trump loss without moving ideologically to the middle.

    Cruz has carefully fed the chatter. Well before he took the stage, it was leaked that he would not formally back Trump, in a speech he reportedly wrote himself. Part of it, naturally, is that the Trump campaign treated him like hell during the primary, mocking his wife, suggesting he had engaged in multiple affairs, and saying his father hobnobbed with Lee Harvey Oswald. But part of it is also because he wants to emerge as the candidate regretful Republicans turn to after the fall.

    1. Anonymous8:11 AM

      I so agree with Ted Cruz! Why in the Hell would he endorse Donald Trump after the lies The Donald has spewed about him and his family members that were blatantly untrue?

    The Democratic Party is headed for a steep cliff at full speed, in the dark, without headlights and no brakes. It’s headed toward political suicide and it seems as though nothing can stop the speeding freight train from going off the edge. Here and there you’ll see Democrats trying to call attention to the impending danger, like Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, and even Nina Turner, but no one in any leadership position seems to be paying attention. That’s because they’re all on the Hillary train, and they believe the other trains are those heading toward the cliff. They couldn’t be more wrong.

    Bernie Sanders supporters do not want to vote for Hillary Clinton. They just don’t. And it doesn’t really matter who she chooses as her running mate, either. No matter who Clinton ultimately chooses, too many Sanders supporters will still refuse to vote for her. To clarify, any Democrat who chooses to join her ticket will effectively brand themselves “toxic” due to their association with Clinton.

    The Donald sets the world on edge:

    ...During a 45-minute conversation, Mr. Trump re-emphasized the hard-line nationalist approach that has marked his improbable candidacy, describing how he would force allies to shoulder defense costs that the United States has borne for decades, cancel longstanding treaties he views as unfavorable, and redefine what it means to be a partner of the United States.

    He said the rest of the world would learn to adjust to his approach. “I would prefer to be able to continue” existing agreements, he said, but only if allies stopped taking advantage of what he called an era of American largess that was no longer affordable.

But he refused to back down to Trump, and for that he deserves a little credit. It did not play well for Trump, because it is the only news of the day. It highlights the rift in the party (contrary to Trump's speakers' claims of "unity"), and highlights Trump's campaign's lack of organization. Trump thought he could bully Cruz into endorsing, and so he allowed him to speak.

    Donald Trump Is Bad at Scripted Television and Also Bad at Nationalism

    If you began to pay attention to politics starting any time later than the early 1970s, you know political conventions consist of nothing more than a four-day-long infomercial, where each party is afforded a rare chance to transmit its message to the public unfiltered. For a variety of reasons, the Donald Trump campaign has made poor use of this opportunity.

    Some of the causes of its failure were routine — on night one, angry, rambling general Michael Flynn blathered too long and pushed the smooth, compelling Joni Ernst out of the prime-time slot. Then this small disaster was eclipsed by the much larger disaster of Melania Trump’s speech having turned out to include plagiarized passages. Then the campaign compounded the problem by insisting on lying and changing its account, so that the news media — given an actual news story to uncover — blotted out the intended message with wall-to-wall plagiarism coverage.

    By the last day of the convention, Trump loyalists now look back with fondness at the innocent, early days of the convention, when the only thing that had gone wrong was a plagiarism scandal that blotted out their message.

    And then Wednesday night, Ted Cruz spoke. Normally, the speech by the runner-up is an important moment in securing party unity. Cruz was open about his refusal to fully endorse the nominee, because the nominee is a sociopath who called Cruz’s wife ugly and insinuated that his father helped assassinate John F. Kennedy. The Trump campaign could have denied Cruz a speaking slot, or offered only a videotaped address it could vet in advance. Alternatively, it could have let Cruz speak and then spun the positive elements of his coy not-quite-endorsement — don’t stay home, Hillary is bad, and so on.

    Instead, incredibly, the Trump campaign settled on a third option. It would allow Cruz to speak, but it orchestrated booing from the delegates.

    What we have here is Sarah Palin, who quit her job to avoid ethics scandals and cash in on a huge government subsidy she signed into law as Governor for the government to fund part of the cost for reality TV shows shot in Alaska, calling out Ted Cruz for also being selfish. Sarah Palin’s Alaska took $1.2 million in subsidies from the state. Government handouts for Tea Party leaders are nothing new (see Michelle Bachmann).

    Remember when Sarah Palin tried to ruin Senator John McCain’s concession speech by hogging the spotlight? Sarah Palin knows all about stealing the show. She did it at the 2008 RNC, with a shockingly charismatic and mean performance. Republicans fell in love. But Palin couldn’t handle the heat, and began to turn inward during the campaign, stabbing McCain in the back numerous times.

    Sarah Palin is no stranger to self first.

    So it’s Sarah Palin calling out Ted “Green Eggs and Ham filibuster” Cruz over his refusal to endorse the reality TV show star who now owns the Republican Party and sadly as their nominee, knows absolutely nothing about government. Of these three narcissists, it’s fair to say that Ted Cruz is the most knowledgeable about government.

    Ted Cruz is no fool. He knows that anyone who wants a chance at the White House past 2016 should not be seen endorsing Donald Trump. It’s not a surprise that Sarah Palin is trying to egg Cruz on to ruining his career like she did hers. But Ted Cruz has always been far more savvy about long term paths to the money machine than Palin. He’s made a lot of establishment enemies, but Cruz doesn’t care.

    He has successfully convinced people they are under attack from all sides, that President Obama is weak and only he can keep them safe using power and force.

    Trump is a man who wants power. He does not care about the citizens in this country. He wants power. He wants control. He wants to be America’s first Dictator.

He made the speech for himself because he seems to think he is some kind of badass and that he will be America's savior. Was he a badass when he shut down the government at the expense of millions to further his conservative creed? After his speech, he was dumb enough to think that he could enter the RNC's donor's floor and that they would welcome him because he thinks he will be the man in 2020. Is this guy that daft?

      Sarah is considered white trash in Alaska! She will never fit in w/the elite w/money like the Trumps. Never! Ever!

      Plus, she not intelligent. She's nothing more than an angry, anti men, racist, raised delinquent kids/young adults (now) and a lying bitch!

      She will never hold a political office anywhere - to include and especially in Alaska!

    George Will frets about Republicans losing Texas, because that's where things are headed

    ...Democrats have long talked about Texas’ changing demographics, and the possibility of turning it Blue sometime in the future. That future is always farther away than we’d like, but the numbers are the numbers. And while Republicans have always scoffed and laughed at the notion, George Will becomes the first prominent Republican to raise the alarm, citing numbers pulled up by the state GOP’s former chairman, saying Texas might “turn Democratic sooner than most people thought.”

    This one sentence from Trump perfectly captures the GOP convention house of horrors

    HABERMAN: What do you think people will take away from this convention? What are you hoping?

    TRUMP: From the convention? **The fact that I’m very well liked**. Look, I got more votes than anybody in the history of the Republican Party. Almost 14 million votes. I got 37 states. Kasich has one. As an example, Ted had, you know, not many. Thirty-seven states. Now, with the roll call, I had 44 states. It was 44 to seven and the seven was everybody else: 44 to seven. It was 44 to six because we are including the different islands. And when you are in that hall and you see those people, like yesterday, my daughter called up, she said, “Dad, I’ve never seen it — it’s total love.”

    This is revealing on several levels. Trump wants the key takeaway from the whole convention — including his speech tonight — to be that people come to appreciate that he is very well liked, specifically, that he is already very well liked. Not that he hopes to spell out his and his party’s vision for America (if you can call it that) with new sweep and clarity. Not that he hopes to demonstrate that this vision is preferable to the opposition’s. Not that he hopes people who are undecided in this election, concerned about the country’s future, and choosing between those two competing visions will come away reassured and persuaded by his own.

    I've listened to opinions last night and today on TV, and it seems pretty split as to whether Cruz made the smart move or Trump did, but one pretty overall judgement is that yet again the talk is about something other than a positive and other than on what it should be.

    I know there are reasons why Cruz should have said something different and I know all the personal attacks by Trump might be considered minor by others, but I'm glad Cruz did what he did. To me, it's so what if he wasn't doing it for anyone other than himself. He still made it clear to those who don't want to vote for Trump that there's no reason why they have to go against their convictions. Trump is a horrible candidate and why should people simply turn around and support him.

    And while this too may seem like not enough reason for Cruz to have made the speech he did (there are all sorts of stories about whether he did change the ending--he wasn't going to endorse Trump but he may have tweaked the speech), if I were Cruz I'd have no longer cared about behaving myself yesterday once Trump's plane and helicopter did their flyover during Cruz's outdoor thank-you party. Everyone knew that Cruz had planned a thank-you BBQ with a band. There were 1200 people there. Trump just had to have his plane fly over and circle around a few times. Granted, that nearby small airport (Burke Lakefront is a tiny airport and not to be confused with Cleveland Hopkins a few suburbs over) and close to where all the events are taking place, but Trump clearly was playing a head game using his giant flying phallus. He made it a point to fly very low and around and around. There are differing stories about how he then flew in on his helicopter ten minutes or so later. It too circled around and around. Stephen Colbert joked last night about the helicopter and I'm going to go with what he said. I wasn't sure if the Trump family and Donald flew in on the plane and the copter had already been sitting at Burke Lakefront or if Donald had flown in separately from NY on the copter, but it appears that they all were on the plane. Which means that he was on that plane and made sure the pilot harassed the Cruz BBQ and then he got on his helicopter after he gave his family a head start by car to the area where his copter would land. He could have gone with the family by car. The distance from the airport to where the crowd was at was less than a mile. I mean, that airport is just to the east of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame/Science Museum that is just to the west of E. 11th St and then just to the west of that right there, is the Browns' stadium. All this stuff is so, so close together. I've been down there many times and have walked it. Marginal road is right there to easily take cars from Burke to the area Trump and his family went to. He just had to get off his plane and onto the copter and land it less than a mile away. How cheesy is that. And he made sure to once again bug the hell out of Cruz. Even if Trump did fly separately from the family from NY, he could have been on the plane with them and taken a car from Burke over to the gathering--it was a four-minute drive. If I were Cruz, the whole production would have made me have to use my speech last night to say a f-you to Trump.

    I believe he changed his speech somewhat to do that. Trump's camp is claiming to know exactly what Cruz was going to say and that nothing changed. I think something did. And like Chris Matthews said, I also believe he made his speech take longer by talking even more slowly than usual. The only issue I have with what Cruz did is that he took up so much time. That was not in good form. But I have no problem with anything else he did. And I was glad he did what he did. All the delegates (and voters outside of the convention) who were steamrolled by the rules committee on day one, when they couldn't get that roll call vote, at least got something last night from Cruz.

      I was delighted Cruz did not endorse The Donald! He stood up - showed he had bigger balls than some of those other male idiots that spoke (New Jersey's representative especially!) at the hate-filled Republican Convention.

      As time moves along, the future will be good for Cruz is my guess.

    2. Anonymous10:54 AM

      Me too. I was glad he didn't. I really think that initially Cruz was going tp avoid endorsement but say things in a way that didn't come across as a big diss. And I think he then got sick of Trump's antics. Lst night, immediately following the speech, people were calling "political suicide," but I think that will change. Unless, that is, Trump decides to hound Cruz (he won't be in the White House and will have plenty of time on his hands) and pour his time and money into making sure Cruz has no future.

    I'm a little worried about tonight. With everything reaching its climactic moment tonight with Trump's speech, when Ivanka introduces him he might not be able to stop himself from finally having his way with her, right there on the stage.

  86. Anonymous10:30 AM

    Incest is what I've always thought of w/Trump and Ivanka. I cannot imagine being in her shoes and following him along like a puppy dog!

    1. Anonymous10:56 AM

      She seems to love it and have no problem with all the lover-like comments. She only seemed a bit uncomfortable years back when he made the comment about dating her. Since then, I'd say she's enjoyed using that stuff and was happy to let him touch her pregnant belly over and over again during the primary.

    Could Donald Trump Pass a Sanity Test?

    What do you think?

    Daughter Ivanka is the family boss.
    She says jump and they all say, including
    the spouses, how high!
    Ivanka and her father are attached at the hip. Trump acts like he is ashamed of
    Malania, his trophy wife. That is all she
    is to him, just another trophy wife.The way the Trump children have treated their mother, Ivanna , is just plain rotten.
    She was with them 24/7 all of their lives
    as she said" I was there when they came home from school, cooked for them, helped with homework and stressed education,
    when they were ready to go out into the world, their father took over and gave
    them jobs." Ivanka said, "he was not
    present much, but he was always available." Sure, he was busy into the big girl and little girl sex parties with
    his BFF, the convicted pedophile Epstine
    {I think is his name) They didn't even give their mother a mention off the
    Convention floor. Trump was cheating on her
    with Marla, and I am sure their young kids
    were devastated at the time. You would never know it now .
    The slanderous story Ivanna could tell !
    Wonder what Ivanka's husband REALLY thinks. And Malania, she will be sitting
    there tonight, after having made a fool of,
    and watching Ivanka basking in the most
    important moment of the introduction,
    which should be Malania, the wife of
    Donald Trump, both the Trump's moment.
    Not on Ivanka's watch!

    Donald Trump you are a great father and husband. I see you invited everybody from your family to speak on your behalf to show America how great you are.

    Except Donald you did not invite Wife #1 who you divorced after cheating on her with Wife #2. You also did not invite Wife #2 who you divorced after cheating on her with Wife #3.

    1. Anonymous11:49 AM

      He was not a good father. He raped the mother of his children, he sued the mother of his children. The mothers took care of the kids and he wanted little input. The kids gravitate toward the money ball.

  90. Anonymous11:27 AM

    I thought Wife #3 would introduce her husband tonight. Is there some hanky panky going on? We see Donald walking pass his other daughter and sons to sit next to the daughter he says has a great body and he would be dating her. What's wrong with the other daughter?

    On MSNBC there are Republicans, Trump's son and Trump spokesmen that said Ted Cruz should not have accepted the prime time speaking spot if he's not going to endorse Trump.

    1. Ted Cruz said three days ago he told the Trump people that he would not be endorsing Donald Trump.

    But yet they let Ted Cruz speak during prime time at the RNC.

    2. The Trump campaign said they read Ted Cruz's speech in advance and knew he was not endorsing Donald Trump.

    But yet they let Ted Cruz speak during prime time at the RNC.

    So tell me, what is the big surprise? Ted Cruz did not say anything negative and the Trump campaign pre-approved his speech.

    Palin: Cruz’s Trump snub ‘career-ending’

    Be very careful Sarah Palin. Every time you poke your nose into grown folks business something bad happens like prostitute/girlfriend Shailey Tripp surfaced, Bristol gets a new trial husband, drunk suicidal son picked up for Domestic Violence, something happened to Todd that put him in ICU (no pictures of snowmachine if there was one that caused the injuries), leader of the Colony Girls avoided jail time for B&E, children's pregnancies before marriage, son divorced, three adult children not attending college and so on.

    Sarah you are needed at home. Stay off of Instagram, Facebook and any other way you are trying to stay relevant.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
