image for Ted Cruz suspends presidential campaign, then names his entire cabinet selection anyway.

Following his decisive loss to Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz has officially announced that he will be suspending his 2016 Presidential Campaign. Stating that "There is no longer a decisive path to victory," he made the announcement late last night in front of a supporting audience of voters and campaign volunteers.

Immediately following the announcement, he proceeded to then name his entire cabinet, including Secretary of Education (of which he said he would summarily eliminate shortly after the beginning of his non-term). Ted Cruz's campaign manager Jeff Roe described the move as unorthodox, but "exactly what this election needs."

He followed by saying, "This election season if nothing else has proved that nothing is business as usual, Senator Cruz not only plans to release cabinet selections, he plans on recruiting an entire transition team."

Senator Cruz was pressed however, for further details as to what the proposed cabinet members and transition team will do come January 2017 when someone else is sworn in as commander-in-chief, he responded by simply stating, "I'm not going to speculate on details, what I know is that this country deserves great leadership even what that leadership is in direct opposition to reality, we cannot let reality stand in the way of true American values."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
