“I don’t get no respect!”

Ted Cruz says that his wife is “pretty pissed” that her text messages about their last minute trip to Cancun Mexico were leaked to the NY Times. He then plays the victim, saying:

Here’s a suggestion, just don’t be assholes. Yeah, like just you know, treat each other as human beings have some degree, some modicum of respect.

What I want to know is, just whom is the big asshole here? Is it any surprise that Cruz now turns to misdirection, blaming the people who exposed his hypocrisy, rather than giving him the respect that he seems to believe he richly deserves?

    I love the complete lack of self-awareness from people like Cruz. Never mind the slanderous attacks, personal jabs, and hateful rhetoric directed at those he disagrees with. When he makes a poor decision, people need to be understanding and respectful!

    He won his last election by quite a slim margin as I recall. Given the Cancun episode makes one wonder what his margin would be were the election to be held now.
