Ted Cruz jokes about killing Donald Trump


[Read the post]


I noticed that the orange man was entirely missing from the headlines this past few days, so he said something headline-worthy today, then recanted it, just to demonstrate his ability to be deserving of Cruz’ murder joke.



i swear, wtf is going on with this year’s election?? that a candidate of either party can say such a thing… i just…


The horrible thing is that Cruz sounds so rational saying it.


I’m a human, and I approved this message.


This is nothing compared with former presidents, like Andrew Jackson… Although he said some smart things too. And was very self aware:

On running for president

"Do they think that I am such a damned fool to think myself fit for President of the United States? No, sir; I know what I am fit for. I can command a body of men in a rough way, but I am not fit to be President."


Man Kimmel seems to get the dumbest things said on his show. Must be a talent.


Toxic. Both of them. I also think that’s the only way Cruz is going to win this.


It’s only fair: this proposal is so rational compared to most of what he has in mind. Faint praise, yes; but true.


I’m not sure what papers you’re reading, but his one-day abortion policy brain fart was all over the news.

In summary, within a three-hour period yesterday, he declared:
• As president, he’ll make abortions illegal, and if a woman gets one, she’ll have to be “punished”.
• Uh, actually, he meant that he’s not sure. And that it’s up to the states.
• No, actually he would punish doctors who give abortions, because women are victims.


You must tie her up and give her a good spanking!


I’m KIDDING. Kidding, people. Just joking around- you know? Like people do?
It’d be a terrible thing.
Just terrible.
A real shame.
A shame if someone took this JOKE I made and somehow managed to take it literally and… terrible. Just terrible.


Let Cruz flatten tRump, then we’d have an excuse to lock Cruz away in some out of the way place.

Two for the price of one.


My favorite part was the little sub-headline where Carson attempted to defend Drumpf, saying that “he didn’t have time to prepare for the question.”

Really, Donald? Your whole miserable life up to this point isn’t enough time to form a genuine opinion on abortion?


I may be way off base here, but my vague understanding is that backed-over-by-car wasn’t the Zodiac’s M.O.

I should really stop looking at Tumblr…


And then there’s Anderson Cooper telling him to his face that he’s acting like a child:


Well thank goodness Ted Cruz is sticking to his promise not to sink to Trump’s level.

Of course he was already there to begin with, but…


So, aren’t the Secret Service supposed to aggressively track down people who joke about killing the president and interrogate them? I thought that joking about killing the president was actually a crime, too.


Sad? Fun, I’d say. :smiley:

There has to be a tshirt:

So many presidents.
So few grassy knolls.

…thought… what about turning the primaries into a lethal capture-the-flag contest? Each candidate could hire assassin teams, and the one who survives last gets to have a chance to be elected?

…paging Hollywood…
