The Republican National Convention appears to be scrubbing Ted Cruz from its official social media platforms.

On Thursday morning, the RNC posted photos of its top speakers, specially snapped for Instagram, moments after they finished their speeches on Day 3 of the raucous Cleveland event.

The snaps included smiling portraits of such GOP headliners as Newt and Cally Gingrich, Eric Trump and Governors Scott Walker and Rick Scott.

Even so-called "B-list names" such as astronaut Eileen Collins, Kentucky State Sen. Ralph Alvarado, Pastor Errol Scott and small business owner Michelle Van Etten got photographed.

But the Texas senator and longtime Trump nemesis who gave the most talked about speech of the night is nowhere to be seen.

One reason could be that Cruz and his wife Heidi had to scramble out of the Quicken Loans Arena as they were loudly booed following Cruz's refusal to endorse Trump.

But in another Facebook post in which the RNC showed off its "Day 3 in pictures," Cruz is also conspicuously absent.

"Delegates packed the Quicken Loans arena and millions watched at home and online as Governor Mike Pence officially accepted the Republican nomination for Vice President," the RNC copy that accompanies the photos gushes.

"The night started with inspiring and uplifting remarks on how to 'Make America First Again' from Governor Scott Walker, Lynne Patton, Executive Vice President for The Eric Trump Foundation, and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich."

It appears that with so many Trump supporters on the rampage over Cruz's nose-thumb – thought to be payback for the months of insults Trump fired at Cruz and his family – that "Lyin' Ted" is definitely a persona non grata.
