    Ted Cruz Booed Off RNC Stage For Failing to Endorse Trump

    Ted Cruz Booed Off RNC Stage For Failing to Endorse Trump

    “Vote Your Conscience”

    This is now one of my top five favorite moments in convention speeches.

    Senator Cruz was given a prime time slot in Wednesday’s Republican National Convention lineup.

    Cruz didn’t encourage convention goers and watchers to vote Trump, rather to vote their conscience. When delegates realized he wasn’t going to explicitly endorse Donald Trump, they began booing and jeering. Then, Donald Trump made an entrance before Cruz had finished his speech.

    That moment in all its glorious awkwardness:

    Such a nod amounts to a dramatic change in position for Trump, who made disdain of big-money politics a central part of his pitch during the primary contest, railing against super PACs that can accept unlimited contributions from individuals and corporations. He called them horrible and corrupting.

    “I have disavowed all Super PACs, requested the return of all donations made to said PACs, and I am calling on all presidential candidates to do the same,” Trump said in a statement in October, distancing himself from a super PAC that had connections to his campaign. “The character of our country is only as strong as our leaders.”

    Trump campaign officials did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

    You’ve been duped, T-rump cultists. From the beginning.
