Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz never showed up for a press conference after his speech at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa because he didn’t want to answer questions about Donald Trump.

Kira Lerner of Think Progress tweeted:

Less than a week ago, Ted Cruz was supporting Donald Trump on Meet The Press. Today, Cruz cut off a scrum with reporters when the questions turned to Trump, ditched his scheduled press conference, and now his former spokesperson is saying that Cruz wanted no part of the “Trump circus.
The other Republican candidates were quick to pounce on Trump after he attacked John McCain’s military service record and specifically criticized McCain for getting shot down during the Vietnam War. The hypocrisy of the draft dodging Trump criticizing a former POW provided the opening that the Republican Party has been looking for to rid themselves of the reality television star.

When asked about Trump’s comments, Cruz praised McCain’s heroism but did not denounce Trump. Ted Cruz is firmly in the middle of the Trump circus. He didn’t seem to mind buddying up to Trump when he thought that it would help to revive his struggling campaign.

Cruz is showing the kind of leader that he really is. When the questions get tough, Ted cuts off the media and runs for cover. Ted Cruz doesn’t want to talk about Donald Trump, and he does not want to have to answer questions about his support for Trump.

If Sen. Cruz can’t handle a few media questions about Donald Trump, he definitely doesn’t have what it takes to be president.
