Cruz Offers to Help Trump Prep for Next Debate

From the Washington Examiner:

Excerpt: Sen. Ted Cruz said on Tuesday he is willing to help Donald Trump prepare for his next debate with Hillary Clinton.

“I am happy to help,” Cruz said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show Tuesday morning. “I have conveyed that to them.”

Cruz endorsed Trump on Friday, despite having given a speech at the Republican National Convention that was widely perceived as a snub of his erstwhile rival. He followed that endorsement with a battery of interviews to explain his decision to supporters, while also fulfilling the role of an enthusiastic good soldier.

The Texas Republican was quick to praise Trump’s debate performance. “I think he really went after Hillary, which was a good thing,” Cruz told Hewitt. “Anyone who is swooning at Hillary’s performance last night, that’s a pretty good indication that you’re a card-carrying member of the liberal media, especially in the first half hour. I think Donald very much had the upper hand over Hillary. Hillary was tentative and had no real answers. She was on the defensive the entire time.”

The next presidential debate will be held Oct. 9 in St. Louis, Mo.

—oo—

Cool!  Whether Trump takes him up on it or not, the gesture is great and a gracious olive branch.  The real enemy is Hillary.

    Good for him. Trump’s worst enemy was himself. Too bad he took the bait Holt put out there.

    Lessons from Lyin’ Ted ?
    He didn’t get that nick-name for naught.

      Bro, as you know Trump is not a lawyer. Lawyers are taught the fine art of twisting words, deflection and outright lying that is taught in law school. Ted got an “A”. Who best to teach Trump? Just sayin.

        Remember, also, Senator Cruz (use titles, it’s more polite) argued before the Supreme Court – and was on the winning side. Of the 10 cases he argued, he won 6 of them (Medellin -2 cases; Global-Tech Appliances v. SEB S.A; Dretke v. Haley; League of United Latin American Citizens v. Perry; and Heller) One of those – the Heller case, was a first amendment/firearms rights case.

        I was hoping we could get maybe get away from ‘twisting words, deflection, and outright lying’ for a change. That’s what turned so many against Cruz in the first place.

    Good to see that Senator Ted has finally recognized that the survival of our constitutional republic is a bit more important than an insult to his wife’s character.

    I pity the hardcore Teddybots who are throwing an infantile temper tantrum over Cruz endorsing Trump.
