Ted Cruz Blames Donald Trump For Sex Scandal Story

JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL RACE COULDN’T GET ANY CRAZIER … We knew the “bromance” ended months ago … but now the top two “Republican” candidates for president are officially at each other’s throats over allegations of a distinctly personal nature.

We knew the “bromance” ended months ago … but now the top two “Republican” candidates for president are officially at each other’s throats over allegations of a distinctly personal nature.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – whose candidacy has been rocked by multiple affair allegations – is lashing out in response against GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, accusing him of orchestrating the story that broke this week in the National Enquirer.

“I want to be crystal clear: these attacks are garbage,” Cruz wrote on his Facebook page. “For Donald J. Trump to enlist his friends at the National Enquirer and his political henchmen to do his bidding shows you that there is no low (to which) Donald won’t go.  These smears are completely false, they’re offensive to Heidi and me, they’re offensive to our daughters, and they’re offensive to everyone Donald continues to personally attack.  Donald Trump’s consistently disgraceful behavior is beneath the office we are seeking and we are not going to follow.”

Trump denied Cruz’s claim about leaking the affair allegations – one of which involved Katrina Pierson, a former Cruz staffer who is now Trump’s national spokeswoman.

“I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it,” Trump said. “Likewise, I have nothing to do with the National Enquirer and unlike Lyin’ Ted Cruz I do not surround myself with political hacks and henchman and then pretend total innocence.  Ted Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz.  I look forward to spending the week in Wisconsin, winning the Republican nomination and ultimately the Presidency in order to Make America Great Again.”

Political observers aren’t buying the pre-packaged narrative that Trump is behind the attacks.

“It’s pretty clear Rubio’s off-the books stooges were trying to circulate the Cruz sex scandal rumors weeks ago,” one Washington, D.C. operative told us.  “Someone put them up to it and it clearly wasn’t Trump.  This thing breaks into the open with the National Enquirer.  Makes it look like Trump’s spokeswomen is one of the mistresses.  Trump’s spokeswoman denies fairly strenuously.  Cruz goes completely wild and spends the entire day screaming about this and blaming Trump.  Trump knows the editor of the National Enquirer,  Trump is evil, etc.   And he does all this knowing that Trump’s freaking spokeswoman is backing his story up.”

At the time, Rubio was seeking to become the “Republican” alternative to Trump – an effort that fell flat due to his campaign’s nauseating proximity to the GOP establishment.

In fact this operative believes Cruz’s response to the scandal raises more questions than it answers …

“From a purely a political perspective, why give this story any more oxygen?” the operative asked.  “Cruz truly believes that maximizing coverage and trying to pin the blame for this alleged sex scandal on Trump helps him?  The brilliant 3-D chess master lawyer extraordinaire believes that yelling about a sex scandal in front of the world (and his kids!) and thus convincing people to learn more about it will help him demonize Trump when even Trump’s person denies there is a sex scandal?  I don’t buy it.  He’s sounds like a guy who is freaking out.  Either that or he knows another shoe is going to drop and he’s trying to do a Clinton and blame this mess on the machinations of his opponent.”

Speaking of other shoes dropping, last week the hacker collective Anonymous sent this ominous warning to the Cruz campaign …

(Click to play)

The warning included this brutal excerpt …

Have you heard of the expression “candy wrappers”? Do you recall visiting prostitutes? Mr. Cruz, we are now demanding you exit this race immediately or Anonymous will release all of the information that we have found. Your so-called underground acts that you think were done in the dark, will be brought out for all the public to see. It will be sent to every media outlet to publicize your disgusting behavior. We assure you it will go viral on every social media platforms in a matter of minutes.

Wow …

So where will this story go from here? Who knows … but one thing is “crystal” clear: An election that was already setting new standards for sheer uproariousness has just upped the ante.

Umm…who else was he going to blame? Surely you didn’t expect Cruz to admit it, did you?

You see, Donald forced him to take Viagra and even helped guide him to the landing strip.

According to Urban Dictionary, it is another word for condoms. I’m not quite sure that that is the meaning the Fuchs Guy Anonymous intends.

shifty henry March 25, 2016 at 5:57 pm

Because that term was emphasized in the video I’m suspecting that it refers to some deviant act, which I’ll not even guess at… although since it is Easter weekend it could have something to do with it, and possibly even in his church.

For some reason this photo which supposedly symbolizes women who cover themselves v. those who don’t comes to mind:

Then again — I have lived a fairly sheltered life and probably don’t know much, or even have a clue.

HaH..!! That foto may symbolize several ideas, none of which are flattering to a Muslim woman… or man.

Yes — I’m really more interested in those BEANS. Surely beans on Ted Cruz’s wife refers to high crimes and finance.

Dark End of the Street

At the dark end of the street

That is where we always meet

Hiding in shadows where we don’t belong

Living in darkness, to hide alone

You and me, at the dark end of the street

You and me

I know a time has gonna take it’s toll

We have to pay for the love we stole

It’s a sin and we know it’s wrong

Oh, our love keeps going on strong

Steal away to the dark end of the street

You and me

They gonna find us, they gonna find us

They gonna find us love someday

You and me, at the dark end of the street

You and me

When the daylight all goes around

And by chance we’re both down the town

Please meet, just walk, walk on by

Oh, darling, please don’t you cry

You and me, at the dark end of the street

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has been leading in the polls for months, but he’s just received his first endorsement from a major publication – the infamous tabloid The National Enquirer.

This appears to be the first time The National Enquirer has ever endorsed a candidate for president.

National Enquire, Fox News, you say tomato, I say tomato.

Nat March 25, 2016 at 5:30 pm

Anonymous gave Cruz 24 hours to quit the race before it revealed the information, a clock that has mostly expired. Later on Tuesday, the account originating the accusations released this photo:
(picture of a woman)

The account appears to be a hoax, posting a doctored photo with the farcical hashtag #AliensAreReal:

Cruz needs to drop out, he knows there is dirt on him and it’s going to come out. One thing to go after a politician but a whole different ball game to go after a billionaire businessman.

Mammaw7 March 25, 2016 at 7:06 pm

Cruz is just like Nixon was he won’t drop out his ego won’t let him

I don’t care for Trump or Cruz, but the world is upset down when Trump’s affairs are OK and fake-unproven ones about Cruz aren’t.

Greg March 25, 2016 at 8:28 pm

Trump aint running around claiming to be the chosen one like Cruz and his followers are.

Go read the transcript of the interview Trump gave to the Washington Post editorial board and tell me who should drop out. Bunch of simple minded ramblings and a lot of talk about his dick.

Your imagination is worse than a boring video of Cruz walking out of the main entrance in a highly public way out of a Restaurant with his employee in the middle of the day. Shocking!

Trumpism March 26, 2016 at 9:50 am

Shocking is you left out the video also apparently shows him walking out of a hotel every Tursday and Thirsday with a woman.

Bible Thumper March 26, 2016 at 10:14 am

Just like there was no compromising photo of Haley, there is no video of Cruz. They are just trying to keep the story in the news. #THETHING does not exist.

When asked for comment, John Edwards exclaimed “How does a ugly bastard like Cruz get a scoop out of five different poon buckets when a handsome guy like me only could get a far left barking mad baby Mama who was a “5” on her best day!?”.

Slartibartfast March 25, 2016 at 9:04 pm

Cruz’s superpac (yeah, yeah anti-Trump superpac) ran the totally delicious ad with Trump’s completely gorgeous wife in a “not-nude” nude pose. They should have known better. So, Trump’s people run an ad with Cruz’s equally hot wife on a bad day next to Trump’s wife on a better day. Now, Cruz, backed by the silly-side media, shoots faux bravado at Trump.

All I can do is quote Claude Rains as Chief Inspector Renault in Casablanca: “I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!”

Don’t give me this foolishness that Rubio’s people are pushing this story. Trump is praising the National Enquirer for an article that does even claim that Cruz had any affairs, but only repeats what it admits was a quote “dirty tricks” attack by his political opponents.

Trump’s own spokeswoman was pushing the allegations herself live on CNN. This story is being pushed by Trump not Rubio’s people. They would have no motive to help Trump.

Read the article. None of the allegations claim to be first, second, or third hand stories.

Trumpism March 26, 2016 at 9:39 am

You sure aren’t very informed anymore.All of this started with the Rubio campaign prior to ‘super Tuesday’ earlier this month.Google Rick Wilson and ‘the thing’.Video of Cruz out there proving affair.

Trumpism March 26, 2016 at 9:56 am

Hulk Hogan just won 150 million from Gawker.If this is false Cruz will sue NE.Of course he won’t.Just like Haley didn’t sue Fits.The truth is not libel.

Bible Thumper March 26, 2016 at 10:08 am

Don’t be silly. Will Folks does not own anything. It took over three years for Hogan to win. It is going thru appeals now. Hogan has not received a penny yet. He never will get 150 million because Gawker is not worth that much.
There is nothing to sue NE about. NE never accuses Cruz of having an affair. The NE article is about a “dirty tricks” by political opponents (read first sentence), which is true. Trump can’t sue because he is never named.

I was very tired last night and I don’t remember which news service reported that Cruz had no choice but to attack Trump on this story, but that was because Cruz knows that an EVEN WORSE STORY is waiting to be made public, but it’s not going to come from Trump’s campaign.

Roger March 28, 2016 at 7:44 am

Rubio did it but blames Trump….shows you what kind of low life Cruz is.
