President Donald Trump was widely mocked on Twitter over his “complete and total endorsement” of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Friday.

Trump tweeted that he would be “doing a major rally” in support of Cruz in October in “the biggest stadium in Texas we can find.” Cruz faces tough competition for re-election in the upcoming November midterm elections from his challenger, Democratic Congressman Beto O’Rourke.

I will be doing a major rally for Senator Ted Cruz in October. I’m picking the biggest stadium in Texas we can find. As you know, Ted has my complete and total Endorsement. His opponent is a disaster for Texas – weak on Second Amendment, Crime, Borders, Military, and Vets!

Many tweeters bashed Trump for hypocrisy, by highlighting his past insulting comments about Cruz.

Trump gave Cruz, a rival in the 2016 GOP presidential nominee race, the nickname “Lyin’ Ted.” He has also touted a conspiracy theory that Cruz’s father could have been involved in the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy, and made derogatory comments about Cruz’s wife.

Sounds like @tedcruz is afraid of @BetoORourke and is asking for help from the guy who called his wife ugly and said his dad helped kill JFK. What a brave candidate.

The biggest stadium in Texas is Kyle Field and has a capacity of about 102,000 people. Obama used to draw 100,000 people to his rallies.There’s a few smaller stadiums that seat just over 90,000 like Cotton Bowl in DallasYou should probably look for a big YMCA or rec center!

Would this be Lying Ted??? Asking for a friend…

This is so disqualifying for Ted Cruz. This man publicly called Cruz's wife ugly and accused Cruz's father of conspiring to kill JFK. That's how depraved and power hungry Ted Cruz truly is, he sets it all aside to cling to power. No morals, no values.

Wait, but he has not accomplished anything for the state of Texas. He clearly is all talk and no action #thecontradictionisreal #itsbeenreal

"The reason lyin' Ted Cruz has lost so much of the evangelical vote is that they are very smart and just don't tolerate liars-a big problem!" —@realDonaldTrump in March 2016.

Not a great sign that POTUS is needed to help a GOP state-wide candidate in Texas.

Prediction: Trump will make fun of Cruz at this event in some way. He won't be able to stop himself.

1. Hilarious that he’s campaigning for lying Ted2. Amazing that Cruz needs the help

— Sam Stein (@samstein) August 31, 2018

The president will be campaigning for "Lyin' Ted," who called Trump a "sniveling coward" and told him to leave his family "the hell alone" during the 2016 presidential campaign after Trump basically called Cruz' wife ugly. How times change.

— Kathryn Watson (@kathrynw5) August 31, 2018

Cruz had asked for a Trump rally, in a signal of his genuine concern about this race. He's getting one.

— Matt Flegenheimer (@mattfleg) August 31, 2018

So no “Lying Ted” chants this time?
