Heidi Cruz took time off from her career at Goldman Sachs to tour around the country with her objectively repugnant husband on his quixotic quest to be the GOP nominee for president, so you'll have to forgive her if she's a bit out of sorts now that her husband has been roundly defeated by a venal, fact-allergic democrat.
It takes a toll on a person to realize that they wasted so much time in such a public setting, and she also got elbowed in the head a few times.
Still, according to the Texas Tribune, Heidi seems to be taking this a bit too hard...
On a conference call with the campaign's National Prayer Team, Heidi Cruz portrayed Ted Cruz's presidential campaign, which ended a week ago, as one part of a broader journey similar to the abolition of slavery.
“I don’t want you to feel like any of this was in vain," Heidi Cruz said. "I believe in the power of prayer. This doesn’t always happen on the timing of man, and God does not work in four-year segments."
"Be full of faith and so full of joy that this team was chosen to fight a long battle," she continued. "Think that slavery — it took 25 years to defeat slavery. That is a lot longer than four years."
You can tell Heidi works at Goldman, because while her math is impeccable, her underlying reasoning is sure to provoke some controversy.
