In a last-ditch effort to get to the Republican National Convention as a presidential hopeful in July, Ted Cruz just named Carly Fiorina as his Vice President.
Seriously? What on earth is Cruz thinking?
First, Fiorina was forced to drop out of the Republican primary because no one voted for her. Second, she is considered almost as unlikable as Cruz. And third, Fiorina’s as a big a liar as her new-found running mate.
Take the fake Planned Parenthood videotapes she continuously lied, without ever admitted she was wrong.
It does seem an awkward pairing, considering past moments on the campaign trail. Fiorina previously had some rather mean things to say about him.
For example, earlier this year, CNN’s Dana Bash asked Fiorina if Cruz “would doom the Republicans’ chances in November.” Fiorina responded:
I would say that Ted Cruz is just like any other politician. He says one thing in Manhattan. He says another thing in Iowa. He says whatever he needs to say to get elected, and then he’s going to do as he pleases. I think the American people are tired of the political class that promises much and delivers much of the same.
Donald Trump, of course, immediately took to Twitter in his typical fashion to comment on her selection, pointing out an awkward moment on the campaign trail between the two.

“Ted Cruz is just like any other politician; he says whatever he needs to say to get elected,” Fiorina says in the four-second clip. Trump’s tweet included the caption, “Agreed!”
But now the Cruz team loves her. She has campaigned with Cruz more than any other surrogate, and has spoken for him with reporters
While candidates typically don’t name VP picks until they are actually the presumptive nominee, no one has accused Cruz of running a typical campaign. He’s pinning his hopes on a contested GOP convention and after getting pummeled by Trump Tuesday in the northeast, and he thinks Fiorina might be his savior in upcoming state primaries in states like Indiana and California.
So it would appear that Fiorina was right about one thing. Ted will say “whatever” to get elected. Today he said she will be his veep.
