Former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina joined Ted Cruz in a one-hour special with FOX News’ Sean Hannity on Saturday and looked like the favorite to be the Texas senator’s running mate should he continue his surge and become the eventual GOP nominee.
One of the narratives perpetrated by current frontrunner Donald Trump, whose unfavorability and unlikeability ratings have set all-time records in polling, against Cruz is that “Everybody hates Ted,” or, “Nobody likes Ted,” or “Nobody can get along with Ted,” etc., etc.
And the leftstream media and the political pundits have lovingly repeated the meme ad nauseam, making it look like Cruz has some kind of personality disorder (at least Trump didn’t call him a pedophile like he did recent Trump endorser Ben Carson!), or something.
The same poll actually shows that Ted Cruz is the most-liked candidate in the race, but Fiorina explains why he has so many enemies in Washington, D.C., and why Cruz should wear them like a badge of honor.
“I have led change all my life. And when you challenge the status quo. It’s actually what leadership is all about.
And when you challenge the status quo, you make enemies — it’s part of it — it’s why most people won’t lead, it’s why most people don’t have the courage to challenge the system.
You know what? We’re known by the company we keep — he’s known by the enemies he’s made. Good for him!”
The pro-Cruz audience roared in approval and Ted Cruz literally buckled over in positive laughter.
Ted Cruz, who is within shouting distance of Trump in delegate counts, solidly in second place, came in last place (Marco Rubio and John Kasich came in a close first and second place, 37.3% to 35.5%, which should speak volumes) in the Washington, D.C. GOP presidential caucus, further evidence that he is disliked in the place where it matters the most.
