On Wednesday, Carly Fiorina was given the rare opportunity to be on the right side of an issue. Unfortunately for her, that issue was new best bud Ted Cruz, so Fiorina decided to be wrong.

Shortly after she was announced as Cruz’s running mate, Fiorina was asked about her newfound support for the man she previously (and accurately) described as a politician “like any other” who fights with “no honor” and “says whatever he needs to” to get elected. From Mediaite:

NBC News’ Hallie Jackson said, “One of the things I’ve heard you say on the campaign trail… is that Ted Cruz is like any other politician… Today you said he is who he says he is. So were you wrong?”

Fiorina responded, “Yeah, and that’s why I voted for him in the voting booth.”
