RNC Part III: The Party Becomes A Rager
While still not that unified, the Grand Old Party finally earned the right to call themselves a party, and just like a typical holiday party, the night began with polite conversation, started to get rowdy, nearly ended with an argument and wrapped up with too many emotions. After a few lackluster speeches, things really kicked off when Laura Ingraham got a massive standing ovation for calling Senator Ted Cruz out on failing to “honor his pledge” and endorse Donald Trump.
But the high quickly fell to a low one when Cruz stepped up to the podium. Maybe he was that drunken party guest who forgot this wasn’t his acceptance speech for the nomination, or maybe he didn’t trust his speechwriter not to plagiarize and decided to just speak from the heart. Either way, Ted Cruz would not endorse Donald Trump, and it was met with boos.
