Oh boy, folks, buckle up because we’ve got some juicy political drama for you! Remember when good ol’ Texas Sen. Ted Cruz had some serious beef with Donald Trump back in 2016? It was like a reality TV show, but with mean tweets and petty insults instead of roses. Well, hold onto your cowboy hats because these two have miraculously kissed and made up!
In an announcement that shocked absolutely no one, Cruz took to X (you know, that social media thing all the kids are using) to declare his undying support for the former president. It’s like some bizarre love story where bitter rivals become besties overnight. But hey, who needs loyalty when there’s an election to win, right?

Cruz, the guy who won the Iowa caucuses back in 2016, also made an appearance on “Hannity” because apparently, one endorsement just wasn’t enough. He talked about Trump’s big win in Iowa, praising it like it was the greatest thing since sliced bread. According to Cruz, it was a “dominating victory” and Trump won all the counties except maybe the one where they ran out of MAGA hats.
But Cruz wasn’t content with just kissing Trump’s ring, oh no. He took the opportunity to bash our current president, Joe Biden, and his allegedly “disastrous cultural Marxism agenda.” I mean, who needs constructive criticism when you can just throw around red scare buzzwords, am I right?
Now, here’s the part that really blows my mind, folks. Just a short while ago, I would have bet my prized collection of odd-shaped potato chips that Cruz and Trump would sooner eat a vegan kale salad together than endorse each other. Their battles were legendary, filled with insults and name-calling that even my grandma wouldn’t approve of. But hey, politics makes strange bedfellows, and apparently, it also makes strange frenemies.
Speaking of strange alliances, I can’t help but wonder if Trump will soon be singing Kumbaya with other former rivals like Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis. They’re still in the race for the GOP nomination, and if Trump comes out on top, will they follow in Cruz’s footsteps and suddenly become best buds? Or will they end up like Chris Christie, who seems to have made a career out of trash-talking the former president? Only time will tell, my friends.
But mark my words, this 2024 election is shaping up to be a wild ride. With Cruz’s endorsement, Trump’s position as the likely GOP nominee is looking pretty solid. And you know what, love ’em or hate ’em, you can’t deny that Trump knows how to keep things interesting. So get your popcorn ready, folks, because this show is far from over.
