After calling Donald Trump “utterly amoral” and a “pathological liar,” and telling conservatives to “vote your conscience” during his speech at the Republican National Convention, Texas Senator Ted Cruz finally endorsed the GOP presidential nominee in September — though he clearly wasn’t happy about it.
Now, a video has emerged showing Cruz phone-banking for Trump, and it may be the most cringe-worthy thing you’ll see this year:

“I urge you to come out and support freedom, and the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights,” Cruz says flatly as he leaves a massage for a voter who didn’t pick up their phone.
It’s almost physically painful to watch.
