Ted Cruz is expected to win Tuesday’s primary in Wisconsin.
Not because of his position on the issues.
Not because he supposedly wants to make America “Greater” than Donald Trump does.
Cruz is favored to win because he is now less despised than Donald Trump.
Cruz is now respected more than Trump because Cruz came out as the clear winner in the “spat” over the candidates’ wives.
Cruz’s sweet and “shining” turn-around moment came after Trump’s campaign manager was charged with simple battery for assaulting a female reporter; after Trump stuck a monumental foot into his even more monumental mouth on abortion and after Cruz topped Trump’s (sick) sense of humor (Remember Trump’s “I could…shoot somebody” and still not lose any votes?) when he declared on Kimmel’s show, “If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.”
After having considered Trump for months the best thing since sliced bread, Republicans are now convinced that Cruz is s a guy who, ”if not the most obvious choice for a beer and a friendly chat, wouldn’t be a half-bad one if you gave him a chance.”
Yes, by all means, let’s give a not-as-bad-as-Trump candidate a chance at the presidency of the United States.
Sadly, this is not an April fools’ joke. Read it all here.
