Ted Cruz gave the speech of his life on Wednesday, bringing the U.S. Constitution, freedom, and the conservative principles that made America great into a Republican National Convention that was all but void of such language in his speech on Wednesday evening.

Ted Cruz advanced conservatism, encouraged voters to not stay home but to “vote their conscience” (which was viewed as “treason” by fake conservative Trump Cult media), in a historic speech in which every word was approved of beforehand by the Donald Trump campaign.

Cruz didn’t speak about, nor did he promote himself or talk about himself, as narcissists like Donald Trump and Barack Obama do nearly 100 percent of the time, but that didn’t stop nearly all media from calling his all-American speech “selfish” for refusing to overtly endorse Donald Trump, the man who hatefully ridiculed his wife’s looks, threatened his wife, accused his father of assassinating JFK, and planted a story about five extramarital affairs with his “Pecker” at the National Enquirer, a story that featured one source, Trump dirty tricks artist Roger Stone.

Ted Cruz was eviscerated by Trump cultists like Sean Hannity and mobsters on social media that Cruz had not “kept his pledge,” as if Sean Hannity would endorse a man who attacked his wife’s looks who hadn’t had the common decency to set aside his serious case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) and apologize.

But where were these Trumpaloompas when “Don the Con” himself announced that he was breaking the pledge he signed to support the eventual GOP nominee?

On March 30, of this year, FOX News (also known as “Trump News”) reported (emphasis added to make it easy for Trumpists to understand):

Donald Trump said Tuesday that he would no longer honor his pledge to support the eventual Republican nominee for president, while fellow candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich refused to say whether they would back the party’s pick.

All three GOP contenders appeared at a CNN town hall in Milwaukee one week before Wisconsin’s April 5 primary.

When asked if he would keep the pledge he signed last September, Trump responded, “No, I won’t.” The real estate mogul explained that he was taking back the pledge because, “I have been treated very unfairly,” and listed the Republican National Committee and party establishment among those he believes have wronged him.

So Donald Trump broke the pledge and Trump cultists had no problem with it.

Here’s Donald Trump telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper that he will not only not keep the pledge he signed, but that he doesn’t need or want Ted Cruz’s support, nor does he want any of Ted Cruz’s supporters. In case you’re wondering, that is on HIM:

Shoot, Donald Trump didn’t even have to have his wife attacked, have his dad called an assassination, or be labeled as #DonTheCon to break his loyalty pledge. All he needed was the mysterious notion that he was somehow being treated “unfairly,” even after over $2 billion in free media coverage. Sad!

He did it willy-nilly, for no reason whatsoever, other than for selfish reasons.

If Donald Trump really loves the country and really wanted Ted Cruz’s endorsement — which previously was categorized as not wanted or needed — he should have manned up and apologized to Cruz for his shameful unsubstantiated personal attacks and smears.

But Donald Trump doesn’t apologize, you say. That’s not him.

Well, that’s not Ted Cruz’s problem. That’s a problem for the Trump Cult to work out. But don’t hold your orange god to a different standard, okay?
