It’s been a tough month for Ted Cruz, culminating with him ending his campaign.

In an odd move, Ted Cruz threw up a Hail Mary by naming Carly Fiorina as his running mate last week. This made her “just a heartbeat away” from never being the vice president. She wanted to become the first person to lose twice in the same presidential election.

Sadly, she and Trump would have been better suited as running mates. Carly is bright and measured, and she would help bridge Trump’s gender gap.

All the while, Hillary is trying to stay above the fray and away from indictment. She has been playing the "woman card" on Donald Trump. If you have not been paying attention, Hillary's entire campaign platform seems solely that a woman should be our next president. Hillary is a woman, so it should be her.

She has been touring the country; she has also been working on a more likeable image, appearing with daughter Chelsea and the Clintons' new grandbaby. Hillary also looked to soften the perception of her relationship with her husband and political asset, Bill.

Bernie Sanders knows he cannot win. Hillary has the super delegates in her ample pantsuit pockets and, it appears, stuffed in her pants legs. Sanders’ game plan is to stay in the race to notoriety and to burnish his iconic image in hopes of landing perhaps an MSNBC talk show or paid speaking engagements. He wants to be the first person in America ever to make money off socialism. He could model himself after socialist multi-billionaires who run their countries into the ground with their “share-the-wealth” populist politics, like Fidel Castro and Vladimir Putin.

Trump has turned this GOP nomination campaign into an episode of “The Apprentice.” In a last-ditch effort, Cruz and Fiorina cut a deal with John Kasich to combine efforts in order to defeat Trump — exactly what Gary Busey, Omarosa and Meatloaf would do.

For Ted Cruz, the writing was on the wall this last month. Some overweight woman who looks just like Ted Cruz appeared on “The Maury Povich Show.” She became an instant Internet sensation; last week she was approached about doing a porn film.

On the bright side, there might finally be something to curb America’s porn addiction.

"TrusTed" is Cruz’s campaign slogan. But a month ago it was reported that he has five mistresses.

The way the campaign is going, Trump might name Admiral Stockdale as his running mate.

The hysteria about Trump winning the nomination is starting to subside. The establishment GOP folks are coming around. Reince Priebus congratulated him on being the presumptive nominee. And even those who said they would move to Canada if Trump is elected president have calmed down. 

Rosie O’Donnell and Lena Dunham now say they will only move from HBO to Netflix if Trump is elected.
