Social Media Mocks Ted Cruz For His ‘Time 100’ Blurb On Trump
Social media mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Thursday for writing a flattering piece about President Trump for Time’s list of the 100 most influential people, despite past battles between the two men:
If a man slandered your wife and father like Trump did Cruz's….ah of course you wouldn't ever forgive. Much less, actively promote. What an incredible lack of any character. https://t.co/nSmiezgrvb

Call me old fashioned, but if I were Ted Cruz and Donald Trump had personally branded me as a liar, suggested he had dirt on my wife, spread rumors that my father assasinated JFK, and was, you know, Donald Trump, I’d probably pass on writing his effusive TIME magazine blurb.

Probably so. Not sure that I would have written the piece for this if I were Ted Cruz, but clearly it’s water under the bridge. All is Fair in Love and War and Politics.
As you read Sen. Cruz’s heroic praise of POTUS for Time’s "100 Most Influential,” it's worth remembering this tweet making fun of Cruz’s wife is still live. Trump has never apologized for this and similar attacks on Cruz’s family. pic.twitter.com/RaCqfXhWgB

This is so humiliating for Ted Cruz. I can't stop laughing. Is he auditioning to be Trump's butler or something? https://t.co/NU431JseWX
