Yesterday, Ted Cruz – the US politician described by a party leader as Lucifer in the flesh” – dropped out of the race to be the Republican candidate in the upcoming Presidential election. He also dropped an elbow into his wife’s face during his concession speech. 

If those two points don’t scream ‘leadership material’ to you, take heart in the fact one Donald J. Trump agrees with you. Well, he did, until his admission today he’d given a serious think to picking The Zodiac Killer the Texan senator as his Vice Presidential running mate. 

Speaking to Fox News, a disquietingly demure Trump said “he’s certainly a capable guy, so it’s something we can think about.” While Cruz is technically capable – he’s widely known as ferocious, if pigheaded litigator – Trump’s new statement stands at odds with, well, everything else he’s ever said:

AND SO ON. That’s not even including the utterly reprehensible shit-flinging the pair had over their wives, which was a social media meltdown so obnoxious it actually deserves to be sealed to the vaults of forgotten history.

Curious and curiouser, right? Well, some particularly cynical observers have been kicking around the idea Trump has deliberately blustered his way to the presumptive Republican nomination, only for him to return to the less pants-on-head crazy ideals he’s spouted in the past. 

He also told Fox he’d consider also-ran John Kasich. Notably not discussed: stunned mullet Chris Christie. Sorry, bud. 

That’d mean all of the rabid clawing on display so far has been nought but an act. And that’s almost crazier than hiding the fact you’re one of the most notorious serial killers of all time.
