Cruz booed after refusing to endorse Trump

Ted Cruz sensationally withheld an endorsement of Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention Wednesday, earning a chorus of boos from the floor before he was upstaged in a power play by the GOP nominee himself.

In a dramatic development, as Cruz wrapped up his speech, Trump suddenly appeared in the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. He walked to join his family in a VIP area and flashed a thumbs-up — a gesture that transmitted clear anger at the Texas senator’s behavior.

GOP officials rip Cruz for withholding Trump support, Gingrich gives endorsement on his behalf

One RNC official called Cruz’s speech “classless,” while a senior GOP operative on the convention floor told Fox News, “I could not believe it. I literally could not believe [Cruz] didn’t endorse Trump. I’m speechless.”

  • That was Scummy Ted.

  • Dana Garcia

    Somebody remarked this morning on TV, “No Supreme Court nomination for Ted.”

    Oh well!

    Why would Cruz be expected to endorse Trump? Is it a ‘party unity’ thing?

    • FactsWillOut

      Because he pledged to support the nominee. Basically, he broke his word.

    Ted’s dead. My initial candidate of choice showed his true colors. People were consistently stating that he is a self-serving creepy narcissist. I’m sorry to say they all were correct.
