Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum End Their Campaigns and Kneel Before Zod

Donald Trump had a competing event from the Fox News debate. He held it two miles down the road at Drake University in a much smaller venue forcing an overflow crowd.

At the event, with a sign on the podium that read “TRUMP” and “Make America Great Again,” Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum entered to play second fiddle to Trump’s well tuned music. They met their Zod and kneeled.

Doing so, to both men, may be no big deal or may be more media exposure. But it actually declares the ends of their campaigns days before the Iowa caucuses. They were subservient to Donald Trump, not equals. Their names did not appear on the podium, only Trump’s. The crowd was not there to see these men. The crowd was there to see Trump.

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.

What a pathetic end to the last two men to win Iowa.
