In the run-up to the 2016 election, Donald Trump and Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz were anything but friendly.

Trump referred to Cruz as "Lyin' Ted," called his wife ugly, and implied Cruz's Cuban father was involved in the JFK assassination.

The future President also commented:

"[Cruz is] a nasty guy. Nobody likes him."
"Nobody in Congress likes him."
"Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him."

The GOP Senator would also describe Trump as a "pathological liar" and a "sniveling coward."

But once Trump won the presidency and the support of Cruz's conservative base, however, Cruz quickly backtracked on his earlier comments and became one of Trump's most ardent defenders.

Even now, after Trump was voted out of office, Cruz took a trip down to Mar-a-Lago to kiss the former President's ring.

He shared a picture from the meeting on Twitter.

Twitter users were hard-pressed to think of a photo they liked less than this one.


Since Trump was voted out of office, making the trip down to Mar-a-Lago to show they still support him has become a standard Republican pilgrimage.



At least it's nice to know Cruz harbors no hard feelings for Donald Trump calling his wife ugly.



Twitter loves to make fun of hypocrisy from politicians but photos like this make it almost too easy.



Of course, a fair share of Texans online could only think about removing Cruz from office upon seeing the photo.


Donald Trump may have been voted out of the White House but at least he still has his awkward fans.
