Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) bragged that he had a “great dinner” with former President Donald Trump at the Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on Tuesday night. But the moment looked more than a little awkward, and not just because of the unusual framing of the photo.
During the campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Trump called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted,” attacked his wife’s looks and implied that his father was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
“He’s a nasty guy,” Trump said of Cruz in 2016. “Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him. Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him.”
Cruz, for his part, described Trump as a “pathological liar” and a “sniveling coward” and didn’t endorse him during a speech at the Republican National Convention. Cruz ultimately flip-flopped and backed Trump, and has since become one of his staunchest defenders.

An entire political party continues to suck up to the election loser because they’re scared of his Twitter, which he doesn’t even have anymore. https://t.co/tB2zA9agaD— Molly Jong-Fast???? (@MollyJongFast) May 5, 2021

You can’t compromise with evil. You can’t negotiate with it. You can’t look the other way. You must confront, fight, defeat. https://t.co/Rm931TIgrs— stuart stevens (@stuartpstevens) May 5, 2021
What kind of man stoops this low? The blonde freak on his left called his wife ugly and implied his dad killed Kennedy. I mean, Ted, c’mon... You’re a luzer. https://t.co/4Fe5j0pQtU— ken olin (@kenolin1) May 5, 2021
