Pardon My French, But Ted Cruz Doesn’t Owe Y’all Shit

Last night, the senator that I worked tirelessly for for 7 months gave the most notorious non-endorsement perhaps in recent political history. And for some reason, that was controversial.

We all joked and laughed about Bernie Sanders selling out to Hillary Clinton, so how would Ted’s endorsement be anything different? It wouldn’t, and suggesting otherwise either demonstrates willful delusion or intellectual dishonesty. Ted Cruz lectured us for months about what a disaster Trump would be in the White House, and suddenly he’s supposed to undercut his credibility for the sake of the ever-sacred GOP?

Never mind the fact that two weeks before the convention, Ted’s staff had communicated that he wouldn’t be endorsing, 3 days before, Ted told Donald himself on the phone, and the speech had been received and approved in its entirety by both Trump and the RNC.

Ted Cruz refused to endorse a classless buffoon who accused his father of being involved in the JFK assassination, him of having five affairs and insulted his wife. And miraculously, people are surprised that he refuses to rally behind said buffoon. Somehow, people that put him and his family through hell expected him to just shrug off months of slander, libel and flamboyant disrespect for the “good of the party.” The same party that fought Ted tooth and nail at every stop along the way in his fight for the nomination, and actively enabled Trump’s victory.

Trump supporters have been throwing tantrums all night and morning because Ted refused to fall in line with their god king, practically foaming at the mouths as they tweet in fury.

I will still be supporting Trump, and at some point if I have the time I may even campaign for him, but I have never respected or admired Ted Cruz more than I do now. As much as you all can whine and cry about his actions last night, you’re lying to yourself if you actually think that he could endorse Donald Trump and maintain any semblance of dignity or integrity. What would you think of a man who threw his family under the bus in the name of unifying a political party that has not only completely vilified and spurned him, but abandoned the principals they claim to fight for? People don’t want Ted to support Trump because it’s the right thing to do, they want Ted to support him because it’s convenient for their agenda.

So, as I said, I still support Trump, but to those throwing fits over his non-endorsement, I’d like to politely remind you that Ted doesn’t owe you, your joke of a candidate or joke of a political party jack shit.

  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
