I applaud the letter of Ann Kelly Bolton ’92 (Inbox, February issue) condemning Ted Cruz’s role in the assault on our Capitol. Cruz’s behavior from early on during the Republican presidential debates, when he failed to defend his father from Trump’s lies, to Trump’s ignominious farewell is embarrassing and shameful. Cruz may very well fancy himself as heir apparent to Trump. As fellow alumnae and alumni, it behooves us all to distance ourselves from this darkly ambitious and delusional Princetonian.
