Ted Cruz mocked Trump fawning Republicans and you know what happened next

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) poked fun at Republicans doing Donald Trump a favor, and critics couldn’t bear the irony.

“Just once, I’d love to see a Republican candidate stand up in a primary and say, ‘I’m a moderate conservative. I represent absolutely nothing. At least it would be refreshingly honest. But no one says that,” Cruz said during a campaign event for Republican Pennsylvania Senate candidate David McCormick this week. Trump has endorsed McCormick’s rival in the primary race, Mehmet Oz.

“And by the way, everyone pledges their love for Donald Trump,” he continued. “’I love Donald Trump,’ ‘No, no. I love Donald Trump more. ‘No no no. I have Donald Trump tattooed on my butt.’”

A man in the audience yelled, “Let’s go see it.”

“I like you, but not that much,” Cruz replied in a video shared by El Recuento.

Twitter users reminded Cruz of his own reverence for Trump, even after the former president insulted the Texas Republican’s wife and spread conspiracy theories about her father.
