People around the country were surprised, and a little perplexed, that Sen. Ted Cruz announced his running mate, Carly Fiorina.
Most didn’t understand why the presidential candidate, far from achieving the delegates need to clinch the nomination, was already picking a VP.
Why don’t you pick out the drapes, too, Ted?
One of the people voicing their surprise was front runner, Donald Trump.
“A new relationship has started, Cruz and Carly,” Trump said to roughly 7,500 people at a campaign rally in Indianapolis. “Cruz can’t win. What’s he doing picking vice presidents?”
“He’s mathematically eliminated,” Trump added. “He has set a record, though. He is the first presidential candidate in the history of this country who is mathematically eliminated from becoming president who chose a vice presidential candidate. It’s a record.”
Trump went on to say that Cruz and Carly didn’t do it for their supporters, suggesting it was another odd ploy on the Texas senator’s part to grab attention.
He also took the time to criticize a few things that Cruz and Kasich do, like misspeaking and eating.
Hey, he’s the front runner, he can say what he likes.
Cruz’s choice to announce a running mate, regardless, is an odd thing. His only hope of securing the GOP nomination is through a brokered convention, something that more and more looks like it won’t happen.
At least Carly’s gotten a few more minutes in the lime light.
