Ted Cruz Caves, Will Speak At GOP Convention

Yesterday a spokesman for Ted Cruz vehemently denied reports that Cruz was in negotiations with the Trump campaign to speak at the Republican Convention. But Cruz met privately with Trump this afternoon and is now singing a different tune:

“We had a positive and productive meeting this morning with Donald Trump. Donald asked me to speak at the Republican convention, and I told him I’d be happy to do so,” Cruz told reporters.

When asked what else they discussed during the meeting, which took place at the National Republican Senatorial Committee headquarters on Capitol Hill, Cruz said there was no talk about any endorsement at this point. “There was no discussion of any endorsement,” Cruz said. “He asked me if I would speak at the convention and I said I’d be very glad to do so.”

“I’m going to urge Americans to get back to the Constitution. To change the path we’re on,” Cruz said when asked what he will speak about. “Eight failed years of the Obama-Clinton economy. Eight failed years of a presidency disregarding the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Eight failed years of a commander in chief not protecting America and keeping us safe from radical Islamic terrorism.”

According to the right wing Washington Times, Trump asked for Cruz’s “counsel” on judicial appointments. Egad.

    Why would anyone want to hear Cruz speak?

    • teeveedub

      Perhaps, people might want to turn up the volume to frighten the raccoons out of their attics?

    • james_from_cambridge

      Cruz sucks but I’m eager to hear what that political brainiac Bobby Knight and the convicted rapist Mike Tyson have to say. It should be very informative and interesting. I’m also hearing that Trump invited Bill Cosby to speak at his convention but Cosby refused because he thinks being associated with Trump is bad for his reputation.

          • I ♥ kitties too, but two at a time was max for us. The last couple were brother/sister. (we “fixed” them as kittens) After a couple of years together, they decided to kill each other one day. The female stayed. She was our last, and it didn’t end well either. Don’t ask. Edit: after Marides48 posted: Our last ones too. The only time they were outdoors, they were in their travel cases.

      That all depends on how you define “lie” and “dishonest”. Besides, when all is said and done, he’ll just ask God’s forgiveness for being so weak and submitting to the dark side. Then he’ll declare he’s been forgiven; all is right with the Lord; time to move on to the next performance.

    It will be a groundbreaking speech… “I’m here today to announce my candidacy for President of the United States in 2020. We can’t afford another four years of President Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

    • Hal Watts

      More from Cruz’s acceptance speech in 2020: “Look at what she’s done to our formerly corporate-sponsored Supreme Court. She and the Democratic majority Senate that were elected in the Trump Debacle of 2016 promptly approved Merrick for the Supreme Court and later replaced Breyer and Ginsburg with young, progressive jurists who will be on the court for decades. Then she replaced our wishy-washy Kennedy and favorite shill Clarence Thomas after they had those nasty strokes while contorting their brains to justify dissents as to why gerrymandering is a good thing, ‘corporations are people, too’ and ‘Christian bigots should be be given preferential treatment for their sincerely held religious beliefs.’ Now we’re down 7-2 on the Court, and we, the Religious Right, are all but toast.”

      • That_Looks_Delicious

        Oh, no no no no! If the repubs don’t approve Merrick Garland before the election, Obama should withdraw his nomination and instead nominate somebody like Loretta Lynch or Sri Srinivasan. Garland was Obama’s meet-you-halfway nomination to replace Scalia and the Repubs couldn’t even manage to be mature enough to have hearings for him. Hillary can reward Garland later when Thomas retires, which is rumored to be very soon.

    Another transcript from the meeting.
    – – –
    REINCE: Put down the chair, Ted, and speaking of chair, why don’t you tell Donald what you have in mind?
    TED: I want to go to the rostrum –
    DONALD: — just down the hall to your right –
    TED: (patiently) – at the convention and give the big speech.
    DONALD: That should be entertaining. Do you know all the lyrics to “Springtime for Hitler”?
    TED: Up yours, Donald. No, I want the big speech.
    DONALD: “No score and seven goals ago”?
    TED: You know what I want.
    DONALD: Your Norma Desmond moment in front of the cameras. Well, okay, you can HAVE your closeup. Say, Rinso White, are you sure about this?
    REINCE: It’ll be a, uh, major moment, and Ted did have a lot of votes in the primaries.
    TED: So his public wants to see him sing the big number.
    REINCE: Look, Donald —
    DONALD: So the convention gets to comically relieve itself.
    TED: Up yours, apricot face.
    DONALD: That’s no way to talk if you want to talk at my convention. All right, Teddy, you can have your swan song.
    TED: Kiss my ass.
    DONALD: I was just going to ask you the same thing.
    REINCE: Wait a minute! Is this thing recording?? AAAAAAA!
    [recording ends]

      No, as a former Texan I can report definitively that Cruz is evil, and unfortunately not cognitively impaired.

    • billbear1961

      No, he’s just the country’s most relentlessly evil LIAR, and in a country FULL of fascist liars, that’s an “accomplishment.”

  • NO MORE GOP!

    Of course he will. He hasn’t been getting enough attention and he’s having withdrawal symptoms. I wish his father had withdrawn at one time.

  • Macbill

    And then Trump will get up and make fun of Ted’s wife again, because everyone deserves a laugh.

  • Hank

    I think I will brush up on my Dr. Seuss!!!
    In the meantime:

  • Cuberly

    So basically the 92 Pat Buchanan redux?

  • B Snow

    How long can they keep saying “failed policies of the Obama administration” before someone calls them out on it??? Shows evidence of an improved economy, healthier population, whatever?

  • Ginger Snap

    What a wuss he is giving in so easily it’s like using the safe word on the first paddle. I guarantee every GOP politician that said no will eventually use their “safe word” and support Trump. Disgusting all of them.

  • Trump must have used some of those funds he raised to buy Cruz’s soul. Another xtian who sold out for 30 pieces of silver.

    • coram nobis

      They’re in denarii.

  • Thorn Spike

    “Eight failed years of a presidency disregarding the Constitution and
    Bill of Rights. Eight failed years of a commander in chief not
    protecting America and keeping us safe from radical Islamic terrorism.”

    Finally, someone in the GOP talking about Cheney/Bush.

    • billbear1961

      You forgot to mention the financial system and economy they TRASHED, and that Obama rebuilt with no help AT ALL from the obstructionist GOP!

  • Cruz’s peeps are basically Trump’s peeps. There’s no reason for him to sit this one out.

  • bcarter3

    Oh, thank goodness! The world is crying out for a chance to hear another speech from Crazy Ted. If we’re very lucky, he’ll be introduced by his deranged father, and deliver the speech while dressed in a Mountie uniform.

      In a Dudley Do-Right voice.

    We knew Ted Cruz was a theocratic asshole.
    Now we know he’s a spineless one as well.

  • bob

    Probable trump quote :
    ” And now here’s lying ted to tell you why you should vote for me ! “

  • Gianni

    “Eight failed years of the Obama-Clinton economy.” We really need for Ted to explain, as clearly as possible, how the eight years of Obama’s presidency has been so terrible compared with the economy he inherited from the Dubbya Bush administration. Plus, he needs to be hammered to stick to the comparison and not wander off into left field. Obama inherited a collapsed/collapsing economy and all its attendant terrible problems job-wise, etc, and now it’s worse? Ted, you need to get a much better grip on reality.

  • safari

    So… bringing one of the most hated men in DC is supposed to… unify?

  • 2patricius2

    Why is Cruz going to speak about the eight failed years of the Bush presidency, when the Constitution was disregarded, and 9-11 took place, and two unnecessary wars were started, and the economy tanked? I know he said the “Obama” presidency, but he must have misspoken, because his comments don’t fit the last 8 years.

  • Once more, Trump performs his social service as a humanesque litmus test as to the decency and character of any given person, based simply on the question, “Do you support Donald Spunkbubble Trump to be America’s next President?”

    “Fuck no” = You’re probably sane and decent and a nice person to get to know.
    “Hell yes” = You are a monster, and some combination of ignorant, despicable, bigoted, and/or insane.

    • Tor

      All of my relatives fit into one group or the other. But I already knew who was who.

  • Tor

    Cruz does not speak. He snivels.

    • KnownDonorDad

      Agreed. The second worst thing about Ted Cruz, after his ideas, is his voice.

      • billbear1961

        Followed, very closely, by his FACE!

      • Robert Conner

        I thought I was the only one who’d noticed he sounds like my aged mother’s vacuum cleaner.

    • Robert Conner

      Now that’s just HOT! In a Canadian sort of way.

  • WIGuy

    Any chance to get his eddie munster face on camera.

  • billbear1961

    I cannot STAND to listen to this fascist monster’s relentless LIES!

  • rednekokie

    Ooohhh Goody! He can read from his book of Canadian nursery stories!

  • Robert Conner

    Caved? Cruz is a consumate opportunist. Of course he’ll speak. The only way to keep him from speaking at the GOP convention would be to cut his tongue out. For that matter, they’ll all speak because they’re all grifting hypocrites.

    Great photo choice, Joe. Ted looks just like Janet Porter, but without the blue dress.
