Republican National Convention

Laura Ingraham tauntingly calls on Ted Cruz to endorse Donald Trump at RNC

Conservative radio and TV personality Laura Ingraham took gleefully robust swipes at "her majesty" Hillary Clinton, her "friends in the media," campaign professionals, and the political establishment in her speech at Wednesday's Republican National Convention. But her rousing speech also, without mentioning his name, badgered Sen. Ted Cruz into endorsing Donald Trump in his speech later Wednesday night. "We should all, even all you boys with wounded feelings and bruised egos," she said — adding "we love you" — "you must honor your pledge to support Donald Trump now — tonight."

Cruz is reportedly not planning to endorse Trump, his primary rival. But Ingraham had one last thing to say about sensitive men, saying the Democrats nominating Clinton has to be a "cruel joke, like skinny jeans on men or man buns." The delegates and audience in Quicken Loans Area loved it.
