1. Ted Cruz. A reader directed me to this 2013 article about Ted Cruz’s time at Harvard Law School.
A former roommate told the magazine GQ recently that Cruz preferred to study only with graduates of Harvard, Princeton, or Yale, dismissing the rest as “the minor Ivies.”
2. Fan of Donald Trump. The Globe profiles a hairstylist who “came to love Donald Trump.”
She had always thought of her father as her shining light. Gentle, calm, and steady. And yet, he had watched as his wife berated Leafe. He hadn’t protected her.
“My father was so doting and loving, but not enough to make me feel safe,” she said.
In Trump, Leafe has found her safe harbor.
“He’s the father figure I always wanted,” she said. “I feel like he’s protecting me.”
