President Donald Trump is going to Texas next week to campaign for Sen. “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz (R-TX), whose father he has said was involved in the assassination of JFK and whose wife he once threatened to “spill the beans” on.
On Wednesday, CNN anchor Kate Bolduan had former Cruz spokesperson Alice Stewart on to talk about Cruz’s race against Democrat upstart Beto O’Rourke.
“I cannot get over what these two men said about each other,” Bolduan said. “And I know you can’t forget it as well.”
Bolduan then aired clips of Trump and Cruz insulting each other.
“How do voters overlook these brutal attacks?” she asked.
Stewart cringed before giving a stilted response.
“You, you look at what the stakes are in this, uh, race and, and it’s so important for Texas and people across the country—all voters,” she said. “At the—at the end of the day it’s voting your values and putting politics at the, uh, forefront and, look that was very, very difficult presidential campaign.”
Stewart then said that Cruz has had to swallow his pride and put it behind him as Bolduan laughed.
“People say and do anything they can in many cases to win elections but after it’s all said and done you rally behind the party’s nominee,” she said.
Cruz famously refused to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention, delivering a speech in which he told Republicans to “vote their conscience” to a chorus of boos.
