This morning, many people are criticizing Donald Trump for counter-attacking Ted Cruz and his wife Heidi for an advertisement targeting Mormons that shows Trump’s wife, Melania, posing nude for G.Q. photo spread more than a decade ago. That ad was produced by an anti-Trump super PAC, Make America Awesome, which has no known connection to the Cruz campaign.
While the super PAC may not be connected with Ted Cruz, it WAS an advertisement intended to run in his favor.
Ted Cruz preaches that wives, children and families should be left out of politics, yet his only responses to this ad was “I didn’t know anything about it” and “I had nothing to do with the ad.”
Update: Someone pointed out to me that last night on MSNBC, Ted Cruz did call the Melania ad “inappropriate.” That’s good! I would still like to see him flat out reject ads that include wives or family, whatsoever and condemn anyone who runs them. Put this whole mess to bed and move on with more important matters!
My issue is this – IF Ted Cruz REALLY believes ALL wives, children and family should be left out of politics, then why did he not condemn the ad? Why did he not reject it, rather than channeling his own inner-Liberal and using lame excuses to deflect the blame?
Because it was IN his favor and it was NOT HIS wife, children or family.
In December, Cruz was criticized for the parody Christmas infomercial that aired during the Saturday Night Live Broadcast In Iowa, mocking Donald Trump. Anyone remember that?
Senator Ted Cruz, by his OWN actions, brought his own family into politics. This particular ad is blowing up in his face, and his wife, Heidi, is being shown in a not-so-pleasant light. Now he wants to criticize other people for brining HIS family into politics?
I don’t think so Ted!
EVERYONE knows when you go on the attack of Mr. Trump, he will bite back and in a similar fashion, but far more fierce.
Ted could have nipped this whole thing in the bud if he had simply condemned and rejected the ad featuring Mrs. Trump as being less-than-tasteful and reiterating his “supposed position” that wives, children and family are OFF LIMITS.
Mr. Trump? A coward? I don’t think so!
What Ted Cruz is, however, is two-faced – typical of anyone within the Washington political establishment.
