Are Cruz supporters a cult, too?

I'm fascinated, now that Ted Cruz has knelt to Il Duce, how may of his supporters who were so adamantly Never Trump have suddenly bought that ridiculous "we don't know what Trump would do" nonsense and meekly followed their leader.

It makes you wonder just how clearly Trump has to tell people what he would do before they believe him! Today I actually encountered a Cruz fan who described me as a "closet liberal" for taking the very position her hero had taken days before,  and who now described the Cheeto -colored chieftain as a "moderate conservative!"

Denial, as the senator from Minnesota used to say, isn't just a river in Egypt. And it simply underscores the point that there is no place in the Republican party anymore for Kool-Aid abstinent, thinking conservatives.
