The 2016 presidential circus continues. This time, Donald Trump campaign spokesperson, Katrina Pierson – a woman linked to Ted Cruz via the National Enquirer story that she denies – appeared on America’s Newsroom with Martha MacCallum and proceeded to rip Ted Cruz to shreds. Watch:
“The Bush people are now running Sen. Cruz’s campaign; Neil Bush, who’s spent millions of dollars invested with Common Core, and all of these other special interest groups like Goldman Sachs, like hedge fund managers,” Trump’s spokeswoman Katrina Pierson told Fox News.
“This is going to be a very serious problem if Sen. Cruz continues to go down this path and then neither Trump or Cruz becomes the nominee,” she added.
Neil Bush, the brother of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, joined Cruz’s finance team last month…..
Pierson said Cruz can’t win “on his own merits” and insisted the establishment won’t support him at a contested convention.
“When you have the establishment backing you so reluctantly to the point to where you have people endorsing you that said that you would get murdered on the Senate floor and nobody would care, and the difference between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz is being stabbed or shot, their loyalty is not with Sen. Cruz,” she said.
And this came from the Trump campaign after the Wisconsin loss that is looking very suspicious to those watching the process unfold and who aren’t held under the spell of the Cruz aura.
“Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump,” the campaign said in a statement released Tuesday night.
All of the statements Pierson made regarding the team currently surrounding Cruz – who has no realistic chance of winning the Republican nomination outright – and those backing him behind the curtains are true and have been chronicled in blogs famous and not for months. The reality that Ted Cruz is either an establishment infiltrator or has been converted away from the TEA Party team that brung him just isn’t penetrating outside of those who didn’t like Cruz to begin with.
As for the will of the people, the one thing the 2016 election has taught us, it is that the people are little to the establishment. Our concerns and needs take a back seat to globalism and maintaining control of the power structure. That much, to those who choose to see it, is obvious.
And that Ted Cruz is not the honest, trust-worthy, TEA Party hero that he is made out to be…that’s a concept being called sour grapes. We’ll see what New York brings.
