It's looking more and more like Ted Cruz got played by Donald Trump. He was invited to speak at the convention. Trump got an advance copy of the speech. Trump made an entrance around the time Cruz pleaded for a vote of the conscience. And some in the crowd erupted in "spontaneous" booing.
Thursday the talk shows were all about how Ted Cruz shot himself in the foot. Well, he did. But it was well orchestrated by a reality show impresario. Cruz pulled the trigger, but the way it was set up it was like accidentally pushing over a stack of dominoes.
Cruz got played by Donald Trump. No question here of who is the better politician. The question of who would make the better president won't get answered.
