Chris Christie, Peter King attack Ted Cruz after RNC speech

Described as “Defiant,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz praised and congratulated Donald Trump on winning the GOP nomination but included a segment on “voting your conscience” and never endorsed the business mogul during his Republican National Convention speech in Cleveland, Ohio.

This sparked a flurry of insults and attacks from Trump supporting Republicans such as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York’s Peter King.

“I think it was awful,” Christie said. “And quite frankly, I think it was something selfish. And he signed a pledge. And it’s his job to keep his word.”



“I was sitting in the front row, dead center, with the New York delegates and they’re all shouting at him and yelling at him, ‘Endorse! Endorse!'” Peter King said, recounting the moment Cruz spoke to the Republican National Convention.

“And the guys are shaking their fists. And he has that lizard smirk on his face.”

“He probably thinks he’s on top of the world, like he’s the messiah,” King said. “He’s terrible. He’s going to do all he can to undercut Trump and then emerge as a savior. But Trump’s going to win.”

No matter the outcome of the November elections, King predicted doom for Cruz’s future presidential ambitions, especially after his performance in Cleveland.

“He’s hurting himself. He’s going to be yesterday’s mail,” he said. “I can’t see any real Republican even considering Cruz again.” As for Trump’s best response to the snub? King said the less reaction the better.

“Leave him out where he is. Leave him out in the wilderness. Leave him in the desert without water.”

Here’s the full Cruz speech.

Here’s the exchange from that speech which sparked such attack: “If you love our country, and love our children as much as you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom, and to be faithful to the constitution.

”I appreciate the enthusiasm of the New York delegation.

“And I will tell you that it is love of freedom that has allowed millions to achieve their dreams. Like my mom, the first in her family to go to college, and my dad, who’s here tonight, who fled prison and torture in Cuba. Coming to Texas with just $100 dollars sewn into his underwear. ”
