Every election cycle has its ugly side and thankfully this year, the Democrats don’t seem to be focused on eating their own. Still, it’s goddamned depressing out there, and though it’s easy to tell ourselves there’s no way in hell even the most voracious Republicans could find either Trump or Cruz in any way palatable, there’s nothing funny about the ideas they’re spouting. Well, except some of the shit they’re hurling back and forth at each other.
Now that Bush dropped out, Trump’s taken aim at Cruz — at least until Rubio pisses him off — and last night the Donald fired off several rounds on Twitter,
and calling Cruz a baby.
“I’ve met much tougher people than Ted Cruz. He is like a baby compared to some of the people I have to deal with. He is like a little baby: soft, weak, little baby by comparison.”
This, my friends, is a grown man who is running for President of the United States of America. But he does the “poorly educated.”
In response, Cruz attempted to demonstrate his sense of humor with a creepily apt Spy Who Shagged Me clip.
I mean, WE HAVE TO LAUGH WHEN THEY EAT THEIR OWN, because otherwise there’s nothing left to do but …
While I’m here, I just need to reiterate that these guys are vile pigs.
Their stance is representative of what President Obama has been through for both of his terms: immovable Republicans, and Democrats who allow themselves to be overrun. Regardless of gender, my one hope is that the candidate who goes up against those Republican clowns can rally the party to get some good done. We all deserve better representation than people who willfully sit down like toddlers and refuse to even entertain negotiation.
