Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas)took his young daughters to meet President Donald Trump, even though Trump has insulted both their mother and grandfather.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump threatened to spill the beans on Cruzs wife, Heidi, before retweeting an unflattering photo of her. The president also floated a conspiracy theory that Cruzs father, Rafael, was somehow involved in President John F. Kennedys assassination.
But all of that is water under the bridge for Cruz, who endorsed and campaigned for Trumpin the weeks before the election. Cruz called the president warm & gracious and said his daughter Catherine brought her kindergarten classs stuffed giraffe to Wednesdays dinner.
Wednesday also marked International Womens Day, which took on particular significance under the Trump administration. Trump has bragged about groping women, referred to variouswomen as fat slobs, animals and bimbos, and called breastfeeding disgusting.
Trumpalso once said that he found then-12-year-old Paris Hilton attractive which is exactly what you want to hear before introducing him to your own daughters, right?
