It took about a New York minute on Friday for Twitter to pile on Ted Cruz for endorsing Donald Trump… the same man who not only made fun of the Texas senator’s wife but even suggested Cruz’s father helped assassinate JFK.
As soon as Cruz hit “send” on his Facebook endorsement of Trump, it was no holds barred for Cruz’s critics.
Director of the upcoming Trump film, “Sociopath,” Ben Howe added this funny disclaimer…
Ted Cruz: Constitutional principled conservative (offer not valid when reelection in danger)

GOP strategist Ana Navarro had some advice for Cruz’s wife, Heidi…
If after saying he was standing up for my honor, my man endorsed a guy who called me ugly…he'd be sleeping on the damn couch for months.

Comedian Mike Birbiglia deduced that if Cruz is endorsing Trump, it must mean that Trump was right about Cruz’s father.
Ted Cruz has endorsed Donald Trump, which, of course, means that his father helped kill JFK.
