Ted Cruz was one of the first members of the resistance against Donald Trump. The Texas Senator finished 2nd ahead of Trump in the 2016 nomination race. The competition between the two was controversial as Trump belittled Cruz's wife and made wild allegations against his father.
During the 2016 Republican National Convention, Cruz revealed that he did not directly support Trump. The times have changed. This weekend, Texan lawmakers posted a picture of him and the 45th President, nothing Trump was in good spirits.
During his Wednesday night show, Chris Hayes beat up Cruz for further humiliating himself. The MSNBC host began: "The adhesive of the Republican Party under Donald Trump is the achievement of Self-devaluation and humiliation. This is what you participate in the Trump cult. That is what connects all of this People with each other. We saw how it happened and almost ritually over. Republican Senator Ted Cruz from Texas is the most obvious and screaming example. "
The host continued:
"Last night Senator Cruz posted This picture on Twitter shows he and the defeated former President at dinner at M.ar-a-Lago. Cruz wrote:We spent the evening talkingabout working together to recapture the house and the senate. " Ted Cruz pretended to be angry when Donald Trump insulted his Wife. Since then has done nothing but Bend your knee and kiss the ring and complete the cancellation and humiliate themselves publicly in A path that is almost difficult to achieve Clock. It is to human dignity what the Sound of nails on a blackboard are to our ears. Ted Cruz knows what he's doing. Humiliate yourself because that's the price and Ted Cruz want to be part of it. "
