What a shocker! With Ted Cruz suddenly ending his presidential run, that leaves Donald Trump as the likely nominee in the Republican race for the White House. And needless to say, the Twittersphere is completely flipping out!
Let the memes begin! Ted Cruz, 45, abruptly ended his presidential hopes after his loss in the Indiana primary May 3, and the internet is freaking out that Donald Trump, 69, is now the presumptive Republican nominee for president! Keep reading for some of the hilarious memes that have popped up on Twitter as a result.
We totally didn’t see this one coming! Ted had vowed to stay in the race until the very end, even going so far as to pick a Vice Presidential running mate in Carly Fiorina, 61, on Apr. 29! But exactly one week later following his crushing loss in Indiana at the hands of The Donald, Ted decided to pack it up and call it a day, leaving Donald as the presumptive Republican party nominee for president.
Needless to say, the possibility of a President Trump has the Twittersphere on fire with hilarious memes and terrified comments. Who’d have thought that last June when he entered the race against so many qualified contenders that he’d be the last man standing? Now it’s looking more and more like it will be Donald versus Hillary Clinton, 68, in the general election and that notion has a lot of people completely freaked out!

This is actually happening. A major US political party is nominating Donald Trump for president. I'm still struggling to believe it.
