Ted Cruz announces Carly Fiorina as VP pick, Trump sounds off

Ahead of the Indiana primary and a day after GOP frontrunner Donald Trump swept the liberal northeast primaries, Ted Cruz announced Carly Fiorina as his pick for vice president.

Cruz praised and introduced his VP pick while campaigning in the Hoosier state as Trump responded to the news of Fiorina’s selection in typical fashion — using a tweet, which featured a clip of Fiorina criticizing Cruz on CNN earlier this year.
“Ted Cruz is just like any other politician; he says whatever he needs to say to get elected,” Fiorina says in the four-second clip. Trump’s tweet included the caption, “Agreed!”

“After massive defeats in Arizona, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Delaware, Connecticut and Maryland, (in addition to twenty other contests) and given the fact that Senator Cruz has millions of votes less than me and is being clobbered on the delegate front, this is a pure waste of time,” Trump said in a statement.

“It reminds me very much of the already failed Kasich “collusion” – a desperate attempt to save a failing campaign by an all talk, no action politician. The people of Indiana are very smart – they will see through this just like they saw through the already failed Kasich alliance. Cruz has no path to victory – he is only trying to stay relevant.”

Fiorina endorsed the Texas senator in early March and the Cruz campaign may see her California roots as an asset ahead of that state’s primary on June 7. Fiorina also spent much of her time on the trail attacking Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, drawing a contrast with the former secretary of state as the only woman on the Republican side.

Fiorina frequently sparred with Trump during the primary. Trump was quoted in a Rolling Stone profile as complaining about Fiorina’s looks when she appeared on the television he was watching, saying, “Look at that face!”

Trump later argued he was referring to her “persona.”

She turned the attack into an asset, calmly responding to Trump during a CNN Republican debate, that she believed “every woman” in America knew what Trump was referring to in his Rolling Stone comments.
