Ted Cruz on Donald Trump

This is a surprisingly succinct, remarkably astute, not-really-objectionable take on Trump from one of the men the president utterly curb-stomped in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries:

President Trump is a flash-bang grenade thrown into Washington by the forgotten men and women of America. The fact that his first year as Commander in Chief disoriented and distressed members of the media and political establishment is not a bug but a feature.

There’s a bit more. But that sums it up nicely. Ted Cruz (or the comms person who wrote this for him) understands this president very well.
