I watched the CNN town hall in Wisconsin last night. I thought Ted Cruz and John Kasich sounded like the typical, polished politicians they are; saying and doing whatever they, or their campaign, thinks necessary to secure those votes.
Right out of the gate, Trump called out Ted Cruz for calling Florida his home state while discussing a 2009 mass shooting at Fort Hood, Texas. Granted, it was probably an innocent slip, but it just goes to show me that Ted is FAR more focused on his “talking points” and being “political” than allowing the easy truths to roll off his tongue.
The thing I found MOST troubling about Ted Cruz was the fact that he KEPT mentioning attacks on his wife, and his children.
NOT ONE CANDIDATE HAS EVER ATTACKED HIS CHILDREN!
The Washington Post DID run a cartoon depicting Ted Cruz's daughters as trained monkeys AFTER Ted used his WIFE AND DAUGHTERS as political props in a parody Christmas infomercial where they were sitting on a couch, reading a Dr. Seuss book, making fun of Donald Trump.
The cartoon was pulled and Washington Post apologized – still, that did not change the fact that Ted Cruz offered up his own children as sacrificial lambs in his game of politics by including them in that parody.
It’s one thing to include them in REAL and mature clips, but it’s another to draw them into a JOKE!
Donald Trump was also quick to respond, criticizing the cartoon with this tweet:
The thing about Ted Cruz is he LOVES to cast the first stone and then scream victim or try to use psychology on voters claiming attacks on his wife and his daughters.
Anderson Cooper asked Donald Trump about this whole “wife” drama and criticized Trump for saying “he started it.”
The thing is, I have ALWAYS BEEN the kind of person who believes if someone else is going to start something with me, I am going to finish it. So in that respect, I GET IT!
I don’t care HOW much Ted Cruz claims he didn’t know about the ad featuring Melania Trump, that ad was IN HIS FAVOR – HE KNEW! NO doubt about it! But, we will never know the absolute truth! Will we?
I do have to ask though – Why is it okay for Ted Cruz to defend his wife, but Donald Trump is criticized for doing the same?
Now, I encourage you to keep track of how many times Donald Trump mentions the wives per day, versus how often Ted Cruz mentions those attacks. It was a stunt that has given him a lingering reason to BE a victim and channel his inner John Wayne, badass, rushing to the defense of his wife and kids.
Honestly, Ted Cruz trying to pull off this badass bit? PeeWee would do a better job!
From DAY ONE, there has been something about Ted Cruz that makes the hair on the back of my neck stand. It’s because he is a shyster! I really feel sorry for the people who are being lured into his deceptions. But, I get it – I was sucked into the deceptions of Barack Obama – not once, but twice! It happens.
As for Donald Trump and that asinine GOP loyalty pledge? WHY SHOULD DONALD TRUMP HONOR THAT PLEDGE?
Donald Trump is the ONLY one who HAS repeatedly said he would honor that pledge – all the while, the other candidates have spent the majority of their time, scheming up a plan to keep Donald Trump from getting the nomination.
If Donald’s name had been Jeb, this whole race would have ended a LONG time ago and the entire party would be unified behind ONE candidate.
The FACT that Donald Trump is the ONLY threat to the BIG money and sponsored, paid-for, politicians in D.C. is the ONLY reason they are fighting SO hard against him.
Please do – keep track of how often Ted Cruz acts all badass with the “defending wives” thing.
Now, I HAVE to ask this – If he is such a badass, why is he NOT coming out against the National Enquirer and their sex scandal story as hard as he is fighting against Trump for a tweeted photo of Heidi?
I fully expect this to be similar to the whole Tiger Woods story – the only difference is, this is politics which means it’s going to be more difficult, scary and possibly, deadly, for anyone to really come out with the REAL TRUTH. Even though I find it VERY difficult to believe Cruz could find THAT many women willing to sleep with him.
Think about it! Seriously, THINK ABOUT IT!
As Judge Judy often says, if it doesn’t make sense…
