It’s official: Ted Cruz has dropped out of the presidential race.
Following a landslide loss to Donald Trump in Indiana, Ted Cruz has taken a final bow, leaving the multi-millionaire business mogul to nab th GOP nomination. “We left it all on the field in Indiana,” said Cruz. “We gave it everything we’ve got but the voters chose another path. So with a heavy heart but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign.”
No one really likes Ted Cruz. The internet is even sincerely wishing he were the Zodiac Killer — prompting some jokers to say the real Zodiac Killer was so offended, he did not want to be linked in any way to Ted Cruz.
Twitter users, quite naturally, celebrated this with their own brand of humor.
I wonder what he's going to do next. pic.twitter.com/n1mrpBFZ8h

It doesn’t help that Ted Cruz elbowed his wife Heidi in the face after his announcement. Oh, Heidi, the things you do for love.
Ted Cruz: Losing Indiana and having to drop out just feels like getting hit in the face, you wouldn't understand.
Heidi Cruz: *sits quietly*

And then, of course, Carly Fiorina had to have a special mention in all this, since Ted brought her on board.
Now I get it. Cruz hired Fiorina to lay off his campaign staff.

Aaaah, yes, Karma can indeed be a b*tch.
It's kinda fun kicking Ted Cruz while he's down, right? 'Cause that's basically what he wanted to do with women & gays & immigrants, etc.

This is where the US realizes: we are all Sansa now.
Getting rid of Cruz to make way for Trump makes me feel like Sansa who escaped Joffrey only to wind up with Ramsay.

Remember how his daughters openly disliked him too, giving him sass and avoiding his kisses? Guess they can breathe a sigh of relief.
Ted Cruz's daughters must feel so relieved that they can now go back to openly hating him in public.

Hey, Ted Cruz. Remember that time when you said you’d force women to carry their rapist’s babies to full-term? I don’t know, maybe we should be doing the same to you, no?
Shouldn't #TedCruz have been forced to carry his unviable campaign to term?

Cruz ending his campaign now seems like a late-term abortion. You'd have thought he'd never go for that.

Well, at least the guy’s consistent.
Ted Cruz is so pro-life, even all his pauses are pregnant.
