Apparently Heidi Cruz couldn’t take the “scary” Trump supporters calling her out for working for Goldman Sachs after her husband disgraced himself by failing to endorse Donald Trump. Once again, Ted Cruz has put his wife in a difficult position for the sake of his own lust for power and attention. During the primaries, rumors released of Ted’s infidelities, whether true or not, cast a poor light on his wife and brought up her past mental breakdown on the highways of Texas.
Donald Trump didn’t do this, Ted Cruz brought it upon himself and his family by letting his pride, ego and narcissism getting in the way of doing what is right. He would rather entertain the fantasy of a presidential run in 2020 for himself, than to help unite his party in their quest to stop Hillary Clinton from taking over our country.
This should tell you exactly where Ted Cruz’s loyalties lie, regardless of the elegant speeches he will no doubt deliver in the future. His loyalty is to himself, his desires and his lofty goals of political power.
Never trust a politician, and Ted Cruz just helped prove Donald Trump’s point of our government being occupied by lying politicians and a rigged system
Heidi Cruz retreats to her safe space after being called “Goldman Sachs” and criticized for her husband’s selfish actions.

Instead of urging the crowd to vote for Trump, Cruz instead told delegates and voters to “vote your conscience” in November and never specifically said that people should cast their ballots for the Republican nominee. During the course of his speech, Cruz only mentioned Trump once, to congratulate him on getting the nomination.
“To those listening, please, don’t stay home in November. If you love our country, and love your children as much as I know you do, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution,” Cruz said. As he continued speaking, and the crowd began to realize that an endorsement seemed less likely, the cheers that marked the early part of the speech became boos.
“I appreciate the enthusiasm of the New York delegation,” Cruz said to the vocal Trump home-state supporters who were placed right in front of the stage. They were yelling “We want Trump! We want Trump!”
One reason why Cruz’ speech was among the most anticipated, is due to the level of vitriol that enveloped the closing days of the GOP primary campaign. Trump labeled Cruz “Lyin’ Ted,” falsely accused his father of being involved in the assassination of President Kennedy, and threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife, Heidi. In turn, Cruz called Trump a “sniveling coward,” a “pathological liar” and a “narcissist at a level that I don’t think this country has ever seen.”
Cruz’s wife, Heidi, was seen leaving the arena when the booing started getting very loud. Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli told ABC News that he escorted Heidi Cruz out of the convention hall because “it was volatile and the Trump folks were physically approaching and confrontationally yelling,” he said via text.
According to CNN’s Manu Raju, as Heidi was being escorted out, one angry Trump supporter was shouting “Goldman Sachs” at her.
After leaving the floor, Heidi Cruz also reportedly got into a verbal altercation with the head of the Washington delegation, who had berated Ted Cruz following his speech.
Or perhaps it was all intentional, and yet another dramatic sequence orchestrated to provide the next speaker, Trump’s son Eric, with a crowd that needed an outlet for affirmation.
According to Mashable, reports before Cruz spoke indicated that he did not plan to endorse Trump, although he did congratulate the nominee and admonished the crowd to vote for the candidate that will be “faithful to the constitution.” That wasn’t enough for the crowd, which loudly booed Cruz and chanted for Trump.
