Cruz And Fiorina's WTF Moment

After Ted Cruz's deranged announcement yesterday that he's chosen Carly Fiorina as his running mate -- and her accepting the role of second banana to a man who will never be his party's candidate -- Fiorina took to the stage and sang to Ted Cruz's daughters.  She may have been trying to be sweet and grandmotherly, but it came off as if she was auditioning to play Creepy Mary Poppins.

As I discussed this odd event with ABC's Brad Mielke, we couldn't fathom why the guy who was wiped out in this week's primaries and is mathematically eliminated from getting the nomination was even pulling this bizarre move. It would be like an NHL team pulling its goalie with 3 seconds on the clock when it was down 75-0. Or the Rams selling PSL licenses for The Dome after they've moved to Los Angeles.

As my colleague Josh Gilbert says, "So this is what a death rattle sounds like."

Brad and I also talked about Bernie Sanders firing hundreds of staffers and Donald Trump's foreign policy speech. Listen, then click here to subscribe to these podcasts via iTunes!
