Senator Ted Cruz was on Meet the Press this morning with Chuck Todd. The entire segment ran 11:55. At around 8:20 Chuck Todd asked this question:
CHUCK TODD: You’ve spent this entire interview trying to eviscerate Donald Trump. If he’s the nominee, I take it you can’t support him anymore, can you?
Nearly five minutes later it ends with:
CHUCK TODD: All right, so let the record show, you have not taken a position on whether Trump– whether you can support Trump if he’s the nominee. Fair enough?
SEN. TED CRUZ: And let the record show you tried very, very hard to get me to commit to supporting Trump.
This leads me to a couple of pieces of speculation.
First, given Trump’s utterly unmanly behavior on the campaign trail, Cruz has arrived at the same point as a lot of us. That Trump is a bully and a general POS as a human being and no one who lays claim to being an actual adult could endorse him in the general election and retain their reputation.
Second, he fully intends to fight this out on the convention floor. His critique of Trump’s positions are calculated to show that he is at odds with virtually everything the GOP stands for and that the fight is too important to allow it to be decided by delegate allocation rules that give Trump many, many more delegates than he should have.
