Ted Cruz Booed Off Stage After Humiliating Donald Trump; Sadly Unsatisfying

They say the enemy of your enemy is your friend, but that’s really not going to hold up in the case of Republican presidential nominee Donald Jiminy Trump and the puffy beast he slay to achieve said nomination, Ted Cruz.

But we still love that Cruz threw some not-so-subtle shade on the man he’s called “utterly amoral,” “a pathological liar,” and “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country has ever seen” during Cruz’s convention speech Wednesday night.

Suffice it to say, the crowd did not love Cruz’s verbal footwork.

Cruz actually made it through his entire speech without endorsing the Donald, a dynamic we can’t imagine occurs too often during a national convention primetime slot.

“I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night,” Cruz said at the beginning of his remarks. “And like each of you, I want to see the principles that our party believes prevail in November.”

After that, he never mentioned Trump’s name again, instead urging the crowd to “vote your conscience.”

Eventually the audience caught wind of the snub, interrupting Cruz with chants of “We want Trump!” With a sneer reminiscent of Snidely Whiplash, Cruz just stayed on course and finished his speech. By the end, he was outright booed off stage.

So Ted Cruz is booed off stage — why don’t we feel any better? Oh, right — look who we’re left with.

Watch Cruz’s burn play out below, and don’t miss the camera cutting to Trump, who is clearly trying to keep things looking positive and unified, despite the elephant in the room:
