Ted Cruz’s ex-roommate ridicules his ‘calculated’ Trump endorsement: He has ‘defeated himself’

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) college roommate explained the Tea Party lawmaker’s decision on Friday to endorse Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the Boston Globe reported.

While others were surprised that Cruz would back the GOP’s presidential nominee after calling him a “pathological liar” during the party primaries, Craig Mazin said, he was not. According to him, the key to understanding Cruz’s motivation is to start one’s every thought with the phrase, “I’m supposed to be president,” or ISTBP for short. Doing so meant getting into Cruz’s head.

“I apologize for that,” he wrote. “But hey, it’s not as bad as living with him.”

Mazin broke down his theory in a series of tweets, some of which can be seen below:

Therefore, Mazin said, that Cruz would endorse the man who insulted his wife Heidi is not about principle, but about the “calculation” that he believes will eventually lead him to the presidency. However, he added:

Doctors fear Trump will lie about a vaccine to win the election

Published

on

There is a fear among many that the so-called "October Surprise" won't be another international scandal at the White House, but President Donald Trump announcing a vaccine, whether there is one or not.

Washington Post political columnist Greg Sargent explained in his Monday column that scientists are issuing a warning in a series of New York Times interviews. Either Trump will like and announce a vaccine that isn't ready or he'll rush the process to ensure a vaccine is ready, whether it is or not.

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms.
