When Heidi Cruz is first lady, he pledged, “French fries are coming back to the cafeteria.” NY Times, 2016-05-04
So said Ted Cruz before the love died and he was cast out of the 2016 Republican Presidential Nomination.
This is kind of a mind-blowing thing for a responsible, serious, Christian, politician to say: elect me and I will let your kids eat as much junk food as they want. It’s one thing to say, “elect me, and I will ensure that parents have the final word on what their children eat at school”, or “elect me and we’ll leave nutrition up to corporate food vendors instead of the government” (which is, more or less, what he said), but to openly trumpet the fact that he doesn’t give a damn about what our children eat at school is truly mind-blowing.
Trump is a buffoon, of course, but I preferred him over Cruz– or even Paul Ryan– right from the start. Trump would probably say, why should I care what your children eat at school– it’s up to them. But Cruz would force them to eat their french fries just to spite those liberal intellectuals who you just know think they are smarter than him. And he would ban healthy foods in order to free our children from the oppression of nutrition experts, pediatricians, and scientists, who are all obviously out there to promote their gay agenda.
The gayest looking candidate of all can’t have that.
