Ted Cruz, Sheriff David Clarke Weigh In On Trump's Crude Comments

October 12, 2016Oct 12, 2016

A line is dividing the Republican party over those who have dropped their support of Donald Trump over his 2005 crude comments and those who are still supporting him, and there are many people who are struggling to decide. Two big voices in America have decided where they stand on Trump, though, and here's what they had to say.

Following the release of the recording on Friday, Cruz wrote on Twitter, "These comments are disturbing and inappropriate, there is simply no excuse for them."

According to the Texas Tribune, a few days later, though, Cruz said, "I am supporting the Republican nominee because I think Hillary Clinton is an absolute disaster. Now my differences with Donald, I have articulated at great length during the campaign and I tried with all my might [to win the nomination]. This is an election unlike any other but I’ll tell you, Hillary Clinton, I think, is manifestly unfit to be president. The policies she’s advancing are the continuation of eight years of Barack Obama."

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr., who has emerged in the last couple years as a very strong opponent to Black Lives Matter, Obama, and Hillary, took a stronger stance, lashing out at prominent Republicans who are vocally refusing to vote for Trump.

On Twitter today, Clarke wrote, "Shameful that GOP establishment insiders are running for all intents and purposes as a pseudo third party to defeat @realDonaldTrump."

The tweet was accompanied by an image of a wolf controlling a sheep.

Yesterday, he posted an image of a hand waving a white flag on Twitter, with the words "The 3 scariest words to weak-kneed GOP pols who jumped ship on @realDonaldTrump this past weekend. STAND AND FIGHT! Dems knew they'd flee. To all GOP pols who jumped ship at first sign of a fight instead of staying to fight like Dems do with Clinton, I say this. Spineless."
