When Ted Cruz took the podium Wednesday night to address at the Republican National Convention he received a standing ovation. He later walked off stage amidst boos and jeers. The negative backlash got so heated, his wife Heidi had to be immediately escorted out of the convention as attendants lambasted her for Ted’s actions.
Cameras showed Christie shaking his head during the speech, and Gingrich essentially condemned Cruz’s remarks when he got on the same stage right after. Pennsylvania Rick Santorum and many other Republicans criticized Cruz for going back on the party pledge to support the eventual nominee.
Cruz was even denied access into a billionaires donor suite.
According to the Independent Journal Review:
“Ted Cruz was denied entry into billionaire GOP donor Sheldon Adleson’s suite following his speech at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night, Independent Journal Review has confirmed.
A former U.S. Senator inside the Adelson’s luxury box at the Quicken Loans arena told Independent Journal Review that Cruz approached the suite after he finished his speech that fell short of endorsing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Cruz was not welcome in the suite “because he’s a piece of sh*t,” the Senator said.
Cruz was stopped at the door because several attendees inside the suite were furious with his decision to not endorse Trump. An aide to Adelson then confirmed that Cruz was turned away.”
The consequences for Cruz’s decision to not endorse Trump are far from over. It wouldn’t be a surprise if this event is the start to and end of his entire political career. Cruz can kiss his chances of winning 2020 goodbye, and maybe even his position as a Senator come the next election.
