Trump Does an About-Face on a Possible VP Pick…It’s Blowing Minds

At the beginning of this election season, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz were the best of friends. Once Ted started challenging Donald Trump in Iowa, things immediately got nasty and Trump started to fire personal shots and Ted including the famous “nobody likes him” quip where he called Cruz a “nasty guy” referring to Cruz’s rocky relationships in the United States Senate.

Cruz didn’t fire back in the same fashion but took his fair share of veiled swipes back at Donald.

In the last few days before Iowa, Trump was bashing Cruz for being a Canadian and claiming that he might not even be eligible to be president.

Needless to say, their relationship deteriorated.

However, now that Iowa has come and gone, Trump seems to be willing to wipe the slate clean and what he said about Cruz is surprising a lot of people.

From Hot Air:

One Red State diarist wonders whether Trump’s four-day journey from gracious concession to sober self-reflection about his ground game to shrieking about fraud and a do-over in Iowa to low-key “it’s in the past” dismissal means that he’s actually insane. Old theory: Trump is erratic. New theory: Trump is bananas.

I don’t think he’s bananas. I think this is what it looks like when a candidate decides to test out new lines of attack in real time, with the entirety of the media hanging on his every word, instead of with focus groups behind closed doors.

In a striking reversal of rhetoric, Donald Trump would not rule out Ted Cruz as his hypothetical vice-presidential pick.

“Well, I don’t know. Look, I have nothing against him. It was sort of a sad thing that happened, but I’ve always liked him,” Trump told Hugh Hewitt on his radio show Thursday, after weeks of trashing his primary rival as nasty, hypocritical and disliked.

Trump added that he has “always gotten along well” with Cruz, but that “I’m so much now focused on New Hampshire.”

Look, it could very well be that Donald is telling the truth.  But if he is, that means that he wasn’t telling the truth before and was just trying to hype up the crowd with bluster.

Either way.  Not really something that will appeal to voters.

That would definitely be a powerful ticket if the two were to join forces but based on the way they have been talking about each other as of late, that seems like a long shot.
