Ted Cruz Suspends Presidential Campaign

People just can't help themselves.

Heidi Cruz is the latest human being to compare something that has nothing to do with slavery...to slavery.

Ted Cruz to Pres. Obama: 'Insult Me To My Face'

According to the Texas Tribune, Ted Cruz's wife made the comments Tuesday on a conference call with the Cruz campaign's "National Prayer Team.":

I don't want you to feel like any of this was in vain. I believe in the power of prayer. This doesn't always happen on the timing of man, and God does not work in four-year segments.

But then Cruz took it one – if not one-thousand – steps further:

Be full of faith and so full of joy that this team was chosen to fight a long battle. Think that slavery — it took 25 years to defeat slavery. That is a lot longer than four years.

Last week, Ted Cruz suspended his presidential campaign following a devastating loss in the Indiana primary to now-presumptive nominee Donald Trump.

For some reason, Cruz told Glenn Beck Tuesday he won't rule out re-entering the presidential race – which could mean his wife Heidi could have another opportunity to make another slavery reference.

7) He played a significant role in the government shutdown of 2013, leading a chorus of Republicans who refused to vote for any plan that kept the federal government running that did not also defund Obamacare. Cruz spend nearly 24 straight hours defending his position, including at one point reading the Dr. Seuss classic "Green Eggs and Ham."

8) His father (left) fled Cuba for the United States, worked in the oil industry and eventually became a pastor. He has made headlines for somewhat inflammatory statements, including telling an audience that President Obama should be sent "back to Kenya."

9) He doesn't believe in climate change, an issue many Democrats have lampooned him for, in part because he leads the Senate's Space, Science, and Competitiveness Committee which oversees NASA.​ During a recent appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" Cruz said "Debates on this should follow science and should follow data. Many of the alarmists on global warming, they’ve got a problem because the science doesn’t back them up."
