That’s what binds all of those folks to one another. We watched it occur over and over virtually ritualistically. Republican senator Ted Cruz of Texas is the obvious and cringy instance.”

The host continued:

Final night time, senator Cruz posted this image on Twitter exhibiting him and the defeated former president having dinner at Mar-a-Lago. Cruz wrote, ‘We spent the night speaking about working collectively to retake the home and senate.’ Ted Cruz pretended to get indignant when Donald Trump insulted his spouse. Since then has completed nothing however bend the knee and kiss the ring and full the debase and humiliate himself publicly in a manner that’s virtually arduous to watch. It’s to human dignity what the sound of nails on a chalkboard are to our ears. Ted Cruz is aware of what he’s doing. Debasing himself as a result of that’s the worth and Ted Cruz desires to be part of it.”
