ANALYSISIS: Forget what I said about Ted Cruz, Trump’s The One

Prove me wrong!
Prove me wrong!

I may have said Ted Cruz was The One, and he was going to win the nomination and the presidency, but what I really meant was Donald Trump was The One.

And that $5,400 long shot bet I put down on Cruz, saying I was putting my money where my mouth was. Yeah, I was just hedging my bets, because I knew Trump would win even though I didn’t bet on him at all. I was just fooling you.

Just look at this article I wrote in July for the world-famous Takimag, home of whitey-white people. I nailed it! Trump was working the media and the Internet, just like I do, or would if I had still had a Twitter account and if anyone would actually give me any airtime.

So I was the first who predicted Trump’s win. The first! Don’t believe what anyone else says. I was the first!

And he’s running my campaign. hating on Muslims, Mexicans, uppity women — the whole Chuck C. Johnson platform.

So, he’s going to win, because in my universe, I would win, too!

EDITOR’S NOTE: We smelled something, so we went looking for the source of the stink. After we checked the floor, here’s what we turned up at GotNewsDotCom.

Chuck mentioned his $5,400 bet on Cruz winning everything in February. Not a word then about Trump nailing it.

The month after his Takimag ass-kissing of Donald Trump, he wrote this at GNDC:

That was then, and this is now!
That was then, and this is now!

During the first half of 2015, Johnson was all-in for Cruz, posting fawning articles about Cruz’s master debating skills and college debating trophies, and defending Cruz from his critics. But even as he claimed to be a Cruz-boy, Johnson was leaning toward Trump by mid-year, the above quote notwithstanding.

And the bet? It was not a hedge. He was sure Cruz was going to win then. Hedging means you cover both sides of a contest, so why did he not brag about betting that Trump would win?

We’re not Politi-Fact, but we’re calling this one Pants-on-Fire.
