Ted Cruz is a monster too-FW Star-Telegram

The Trump factor

Both Abbott and Cruz declined to criticize Donald Trump, the current GOP presidential frontrunner, for his call Monday for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.” Cruz, who has repeatedly refused to speak ill of Trump, reiterated that he disagrees with Trump’s proposal but brushed off questions about its constitutionality, saying he is “focused on my policies and the solutions that I am proposing.”

“Certainly in the media there has been no shortage of criticism of Donald Trump, and I do not believe the world needs my voice added to that chorus of critics,” Cruz said, praising Trump — as he has done for months — for “standing up and focusing America’s attention on the need to secure our borders.”

Really? Ted Cruz would rather not take a stand against an obvious xenophobic monster? What a pathetic excuse not to take a stand, but probably more that he agrees with Trump and doesn't want his true feelings known. 

Abbott, meanwhile, responded to a question about the constitutionality of Trump’s proposal by maintaining that the “correct approach” to the refugee issue is “precisely the approach Sen. Cruz has articulated.” Without addressing Trump’s idea, Abbott said he believes Cruz’s proposal is consistent with the Constitution.

Asked if he could support Trump in a general election, Cruz said he “absolutely” plans to back whomever wins the GOP nomination. “I hope and intend for that nominee to be me,” Cruz added.

By that reckoning, if Hitler was running for president on the Republican ticket, Ted Cruz would support him. Ugh.
