Sure it was a joke but as they say, all jokes must have an element of truth for them to be effective. And Hillary Clinton’s jab at Ted Cruz — who is no longer a presidential candidate and wasn’t in attendance — is obviously still viewed as a threat to the Washington Cartel.
“So tonight, let’s embrace the spirit of the evening. Let’s come together, remember what unites us and just rip on Ted Cruz,” Clinton said at the Al Smith dinner, an annual event attended by the ruling class in politics and the media.

Hillary’s comments are no doubt a precursor to what we’ll see the next four years, Ted Cruz standing up to the establishment in both parties and defending the Constitution, while the DC cabal of politicians, journalists, bureaucrats, and lobbyists fight him every step of the way. Hillary’s jab at Ted Cruz shows that the DC cartel still fears him.
