Quote of the Year for 2016: Ted Cruz Told Us That Don the Con is a Liar and a Bully


This was published in the Guardian after Don the Con won the Republican nomination, as spoken by Ted Cruz, who is a practiced liar himself:

“This man is a pathological liar,” he told reporters. “He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth. And in a pattern that I think is straight out of a psychology textbook, his response is to accuse everybody else of lying.”

That was before he called Trump “a narcissist” and “utterly amoral”. Oh yeah, and chronically insecure.

“Every one of us knew bullies in elementary school,” Cruz continued. “Bullies don’t come from strength, bullies come from weakness. Bullies come from a deep, yawning cavern of insecurity. There is a reason Donald builds giant buildings and puts his name on them everywhere he goes.”

Do I repeat myself?   Or was I just late in noticing this chillingly honest evaluation of a candidate by an actual politician?  In any case, this statement should have given the people a clue as to what they were really voting for.  The fact that it didn’t strongly suggests that the election was manipulated in some way, by control of or malign influence on the news media or nefarious means.
