On the way to work this morning, I heard NPR for some goddamn reason tour Ted Cruz’s high school and learn about him as a kid. (spoiler alert: he held exactly the same views as a 14-year-old white male with affluent parents as he does now).
Other than him assaulting people with Constitutional rhetoric as a kid, my main takeaway was the fact that his high school plays elevator music in the hallways. And it’s a church.
Cruz attended Second Baptist High School. It’s on the campus of a megachurch tucked near a country club in a leafy, affluent neighborhood.
I hate Trump, but I fear Cruz.
