WaPo Journalist: Ted Cruz Refusing to Endorse Trump Was a ‘Cuban Thing’

Ed O’KeefeThe Washington Post‘s Ed O’Keefe opined on CNN Thursday that Ted Cruz‘s lingering bitterness and refusal to endorse Donald Trump in his primetime RNC speech was just a “Cuban thing.”

“I saw some Florida types last night, Cuban-American population quite plentiful down there, saying this is possibly the most Cuban thing he could have done,” O’Keefe said.

“He’s Cuban-American, it’s a pride thing,” he continued. “I think there’s an understanding among certain people today that that’s why he did it, and that’s perfectly acceptable.”

CNN host John King kept the theme rolling by questioning whether it was a case of “¿Quién es más macho?”, a reference to an old Saturday Night Live sketch.
