Ted Cruz Humiliated As Texas Campaign Event Quickly Turns Into A Trump 2020 Rally

A campaign event meant to energize supporters of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ended up quickly turning into a Donald Trump 2020 rally on Monday night.

While the event was billed as a rally to help the Texas senator’s campaign in a competitive Senate race against likable Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke,  even Cruz appeared to know why he was really there – to stroke the president’s ego.

Toward the end of his remarks, Cruz went off on a tangent about helping re-elect the president in an election more that’s over two years from now.

“In 2020, Donald Trump will be overwhelmingly re-elected,” Cruz said about the man who waged vicious attacks on him and his family just two years ago.

As Jeff Zeleny of CNN noted, Cruz was clearly “the opening act.” This event was all about getting the Texas senator – a former Trump foe – to fawn over the president in front of a raucous MAGA mob.

Ted Cruz has fully sold out to Donald Trump

The Texas campaign event on Monday night was the most striking example yet of how Ted Cruz has completely sold out to Donald Trump.

It came just two short years after Trump dubbed Cruz “Lyin’ Ted” and attacked his wife and father. At the time, Cruz responded by calling Trump a “sniveling coward” and a “pathological liar.”

But the real sniveling coward was the Texas senator who stood behind a podium on Monday night to heap praise on this president and tell his constituents he will be nothing but a Trump puppet if he’s given another term in the Senate.
