WATCH: Ted Cruz Thinks its Pathetic When Republican Candidates Suck Up to Trump

Donald Trump and Ted Cruz had a bit of a war during the 2016 Republican nomination process. Trump called Cruz’s wife ugly and accused his father of being involved in the Kennedy assassination. The Texas senator responded by embarrassing Trump during the Republican National Convention.

Once Trump won office, however, Cruz became one of his most ardent sycophants. The GOP senator was one of Trump’s key supporters during teh attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election. Still, Cruz saw fit to recently tell a crowd that it was sad to see Republicans suck up to Trump.

The senator made the comments while stumping for Pennsylvania hopeful David McCormick.

“Just once,” Cruz began, “I’d love to see a Republican candidate stand up in a primary and say, ‘I am a moderate, establishment squish. I stand for absolutely nothing.’  It would be refreshingly honest at least. But nobody says that.

And by the way, they all pledge their love for Donald Trump. ‘I love Donald Trump.’ ‘No, no. I love Donald Trump more.’ ‘No, no, I have Donald Trump tattooed on my rear end.'”

Notably, when Trump endorsed Cruz in 2018, he remarked, “I am honored that President Trump is here endorsing and supporting my campaign. And I look forward to campaigning alongside him in 2020 for his reelection as President of the United States!”
