President Trump headlined a massive rally in Houston Monday evening in support of Sen. Ted Cruz’ (R-Tx.) re-election campaign. While there, he took the opportunity to crack a hilarious joke about Hillary Clinton — and it was funny because of how much truth there was in it.
Standing in front of the packed house with huge crowds of people waiting outside in vain to get in, Trump said, “If you want the fake news to finally investigate Hillary Clinton, we’ll just have—”
He paused as the crowd roared at length, with some members appearing to chant, “Lock her up! Lock her up!”
“I didn’t do it, I didn’t do it,” Trump told the media cameras in the back of the room.
“So if you want them to investigate, we’ll just have to nominate Hillary Clinton to the United States Supreme Court,” he said with a grin.
The crowd roared, with many laughing at his joke while others booed Hillary.
“Let’s see how she does,” the president continued. “If Judge Kavanaugh had to go what he had to go through, and he’s a fine man, can you imagine Hillary up there? That would take three to four years of questions.”
He followed that up in a more serious tone, telling the audience, “At stake in this [midterm] election is whether we continue the extraordinary prosperity that we’ve all achieved, or whether we let the radical Democrat mob take a giant wrecking ball and destroy our country and our economy.”

At the rally, Trump also received a very strong endorsement from Michael J. Lindell, the famed CEO and inventor of My Pillow.
“He solves problems! He’s so common sense,” Lindell told reporters, practically yelling to be heard over the rally. "He is a businessman. I see what he does. He takes it all in and he has just an amazing thing.”
"[He was] picked by God to run this country, and I know that it was a Divine appointment,” Lindell added. “He gets such wisdom and discernment and is able to make great decisions.”
Cruz has been in a tight race with his progressive Democratic contender, Beto O’Rourke, who has received a mountain of support from the Hollywood left. Higher-than-normal voter turnout is expected in Texas for the midterm elections because of all the excitement this heated race has stirred up.
Despite the record $38 million that O’Rourke now has for his campaign, according to Business Insider of polls from Oct. 16 show Cruz four to seven points ahead of O’Rourke.
