Ted Cruz’s Ex-Classmate: He Said “My Mom Was Going To Hell And Was A Whore” For Having An Abortion

If there’s one thing that people agree on about Republican presidential candidate and religious extremist Tea Party Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), it’s that he is almost universally despised. His own colleagues in the Senate refer to him as a “wacko bird” and a “jackass;” his work on the George W. Bush election campaign failed to get him a position in the administration because “I just don’t like the guy.”

The vitriol that Ted Cruz evokes in people goes back a long way. His college roommate declared that he was a “a huge assh*le, a nightmare of a human being,” and that “I would rather have anybody else be the president of the United States. Anyone. I would rather pick somebody from the phone book.” Tales of self-righteous arrogance and distasteful rudeness have dogged him for years; when asked to describe him, his classmates used the words “abrasive,” “intense,” “strident,” “crank,” and “arrogant.”

One story is particularly telling; Mikaela Beardsley, who went to school with Cruz at Princeton, recounts how in a discussion with Cruz, she told him how her mother had an abortion because their family couldn’t support another child: “I remember telling him [that] my mother had two children, they really couldn’t afford to have another child, they really would have struggled. And it was a very difficult, painful decision for my mother.”

Cruz became “vicious” and told her “that my mother was going to hell and was a whore.”

All of these stories paint a picture of a vile man uniquely unfit to lead anything, let alone a global superpower. His actions in Congress only confirm these assessments about his despicable character; he holds no principles except his own ambitions and his personal agenda, as his disgusting hypocrisy and a callous lack of empathy for others shows. For example, when news of the crisis in Flint became public, Cruz rushed to help hand out water – but only to pro-life “pregnancy crisis centers” that convince women to not have abortions with outright lies. He may have been able to ride a wave of evangelical support to a win in Iowa, but his repulsive personality will ultimately doom his selfish ambitions.
