2018 Midterms

Ted Cruz Jokes Hillary’s Jail Cell Should Be ‘Double Occupancy’



At a campaign event in Georgetown, Texas on Tuesday, a protestor made reference to one of President Donald J. Trump’s long-standing 2016 campaign jokes, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) kept the joke alive.

In reference to Cruz’s opponent Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, who fled the scene of drunk driving accident in 1998, for which he was not severely punished and consequently lied about on the campaign trail, a Cruz supporter yelled “lock him up.”

“Well, you know, there’s a double-occupancy cell with Hillary Clinton,” Cruz said, referring to twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton’s long history of alleged crimes. “Y’all are gonna get me in trouble with that,” Cruz added.

During the second presidential of 2016, Clinton tried to punk Trump, saying that it was “awfully good that someone with the temperment of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in America.”

“Because you’d be in jail,” Trump said in response, with a wink and a nod to his supporters, who chanted (and still chant) “lock her up” when Clinton is the topic of discussion.

Clinton and her husband, former president William J. Clinton, have been accused of corruption for decades, spanning back to the beginning of their political dynasty. Though no charges have ever been filed, the pair received massive payments for giving speeches to large benefactors and suspicious donations to their charitable foundation from foreign entities – all while Hillary served as Secretary of State – allegedly for granting political favors.
