This thing started like play – like play and America promised us that it would be fine, that we needed to chill, that Trump would neeeeeever be president. Look at this nonsense now. Ted Cruz, the Republican candidate closest to Trump in the stakes officially pulled out of the race today after losing badly to The Donald in the Indiana Primary.
Don’t get me wrong, I hate Ted Cruz. I genuinely believe that he is a psychopath who would cause immeasurable hurt to the USA but at least there was one person who was making Donald Trump look over his shoulder from time to time, after seeing off the rest of the candidates in quick succession.
Now the flailing comb-over will flail even harder, the red face will get even ruddier, the gesticulations will get wilder, and the already-overblown ego will go positively stratospheric. America, YOU PROMISED! You promised Trump would be over in a few short weeks, just a bit of comic relief.
Trump. Is. Still. Here. And. He. Is Likely. To. Be. The. Next. Republican. Presidential. Candidate.
Earlier, Mr Cruz called Mr Trump a “liar” who was unfit to be president.
Ted Cruz, the senator from Texas had been seen as the Republican party’s only viable alternative to Mr Trump.
“We left it all in the field in Indiana, and the voters chose another path,” he told supporters in Indiana.
“With a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.”
