Oh, what a tangled web…..
Earlier today, former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz but just a couple of months ago on the campaign trail, she was calling out Cruz for his Canadian-U.S. dual-citizenship.
Fiorina stated, [relevant remarks begin around 3:20] “Well, I don’t know all the particulars, but I would say this, I find it odd that Senator Ted Cruz did not renounce his dual Canadian citizenship until 2014, when it became clear he was running for president.”
She added that Cruz should be asked about not renouncing his dual citizenship until 2014. Fiorina continued, “clearly, there are both legal scholars, and others who think this is, perhaps, a legitimate issue. My issue is, that I think both Donald Trump, and Ted Cruz, are far too divisive as candidates to ever beat Hillary Clinton.
I’m a conservative who can beat Hillary Clinton, who won’t sacrifice our principles, but [who will] explain our principles to the American people. I don’t think you can have someone win who insults everyone routinely, and I also don’t think you can win, when you have someone, like Senator Cruz, who says one thing in the drawing rooms of Manhattan, and another thing in the living rooms of Iowa. That’s kind of what politicians do. They say what they need to say to get elected, and then they do whatever they please.”
Now that’s a twist isn’t it? I find it very funny how Cruz supporters who went after Fiorina for this statement, not even three months ago have given her a pass and think it’s the greatest endorsement since sliced bread.
This is called strange bedfellows in my humble opinion. Check out some of these tweeters:

Well, there you go. What do you think of Fiorina’s conversion? Do you think it’s all a show? Will the media call her out on this or give her a pass? Share your comments below and add this to your social media page for discussion.
