The Captured Vassal Rick Santorum to Be Paraded in Trump’s Triumph [UPDATED]

Updated: I’m shocked. I’m floored. Santorum endorsed Rubio, not Trump. Good. Trump is going to be amazing to watch. 

As I noted a week ago, Rick Santorum had his “kneel before Zod” moment and knelt before Donald Trump at Trump’s alternative to the Fox News debate. Skipping that debate sunk Trump in Iowa and going to Trump’s event was the end of Santorum and Huckabee.

I wrote at the time, “Like conquered kings paraded in a Triumph through the streets of Rome, Santorum and Huckabee were paraded through Drake University, now the vassals of Donald Trump.” Thus it will be tonight.

Rick Santorum is suspending his campaign, having announced he will endorse someone else, and is heading to Greta’s show on Fox. Donald Trump will also be on her show tonight.

It does not take a leap of logic to conclude that, having knelt before Zod and been paraded through Des Moines in Donald Trump’s Triumph, Santorum will now endorse Trump. Santorum’s transition to irrelevance is complete.
