RSBN is doing its best to keep you updated in real time about what certainly seems to be the effective end of the Cruz campaign, as the multiple-mistress scandal continues to linger and fester.
As of this afternoon, March 29, the Cruz campaign appears to be spinning out of control, if not already finished. It may be just a matter of time.
Not that Big Media is particularly doing much to do anything but bury the story. The trumpophobic media of course is relying on Cruz to remain in the race as its last hope of possibly preventing Trump from receiving the 1,237 delegates required for the Republican nomination.
The big news of the last day or so, make no mistake, is that Heidi Cruz has gone MIA. She canceled her New Jersey campaign events that were scheduled this week, including a fundraiser in Morris County scheduled for Wednesday.
Additionally, she has not tweeted since Friday, the day after the Cruz-infidelity story broke in the National Enquirer.
Additionally, yesterday Cruz added suspicion by hamhandedly attempting to avoid a question on the infidelity issue. Instead, he figuratively hid behind the skirt of Carly Fiorina.
When Cruz was asked by a reporter from DailyMail.com yesterday to tell on the record that youve never been unfaithful to your wife, Fiorina awkwardly jumped in, with a subsequent exchange going as follows:
Fiorina: If I may Reporter: No, Im sorry. I asked the Senator that question. Fiorina: Well, Im gonna comment, OK? Reporter: Do you have first-hand knowledge of his marriage? Fiorina: Im gonna comment. This is an example of the media playing to Donald Trumps tune.
Fiorina then tried her best to change the subject, saying Donald trump is a serial philanderer, by his own admission. And in a week when we have had a terrorist attack in Brussels, a shooting on Capitol Hill, the president of the United States in the baseball stands with Raul Castro, and insisting that he be photographed in front of a portrait of Che Guevara with the two Castro brothers, we are talking about a scurrilous, ridiculous piece in the National Enquirer. Why do you all dance to Donald Trumps tune? Lets talk about the issues, please.
Given another attempt to answer the specific question, Cruz responded with Sir, I recognize that you love going into the gutter with these kind of [several parties talking at once].
Cruz did say, thereafter, that the National Enquirer story is complete garbage. It is total lies. It was planted by Donald Trumps henchmen.
Cruz of course was using legalese there, which could have of course referred to any National Enquirer story. He did not answer the reporters actual question about his faithfulness.
As Trump emphasized during his appearance on The Savage Nation yesterday, it was Marco Rubios campaign which had been peddling the Cruz-mistress story for some time, and Trump himself had nothing to do with its promulgation. In fact, Trump (who of course wasnt there 24/7 and thus cannot be entirely sure that there was no infidelity) expressed to Savage that he thought the allegations were garbage. Note, as was the case with Cruz also using the term garbage to describe the allegations, the use of the word garbage does not necessarily mean that one thinks the allegations are untrue.
Meanwhile, the Cruz campaign has resorted to attempting to deflect attention from its candidates meltdown by playing up the ridiculous-to-the-point-of-almost-hilarious charge of battery in Jupiter, Florida against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. This battery consisted of a slight inadvertent brush-up against publicity-seeking, now-former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields when both parties were on a crowded stage. Cruzs campaign manager Alice Stewart attempted to exploit the bogus charge against Lewandowski, saying, apparently not jokingly: Unfortunately, this abusive behavior seems to be part of the culture of the Trump campaign.
As for the division of the Cruz campaign know as The Glenn Beck Program, Beck said yesterday that hell drop Ted Cruz like a hot potato if the sex scandal allegations turn out to be true.
Beck added that But if youre a serial guy, like five of them during this campaign, thats insane, a totally different person han we think Ted Cruz is But, laughingly, Beck pointed out that Cruz doesnt have enough game. Were not talking Tom Cruise. Its Ted Cruz, have you watched him?
Beck has taken in recent weeks to referring to Cruz as the anointed one, beseeching Christian voters that its their religious due to vote for Cruz.
Some Cruz supporters are certainly troubled by the way the story is playing out. According to Tanna, one now-former Cruz supporter: Hes so done. His entire campaign has been based on being a moral elitist being above and more GODLY than the rest of us and I took the bait. Shame on me. Last time I fall for that preacher crap.
In sum, whether the adage that where theres smoke, theres fire applies to the Cruz-infidelity story is, for now, for you to decide. We at RSBN suspect the soap opera known as the Cruz Campaign will be providing a final answer very shortly.
The only thing melting down is this stupid tabloid fabrication.
Do you mean to tell me this is actually true?
The man thought he could run for President as a Republican and keep his extra-curricular activities secret?
I thought he was supposed to be smart.
This is Twilight Zone stuff.
Cruz denied it, called it garbage. Cited the tradition of dirty tricks called rat-f***ing. Etc ad nauseam.
Out of touch with reality.
Cruz can thank his lucky stars that Rush, AKA The Mayor of Realville, has neglected to report on the Infidelity Story.
So Cruz filed suit against National Enquirer???
Cruz is guilty as hell.
Ivy League smart.
If it had any legs it’d be all over Drudge, the evening news and the like.
Trump needs something else to talk about, rather than policy issues.
His defenses on policy questions are only 30 to 60 seconds deep. He can’t afford to go into detail, and get caught short again and again.
I will only say that based on the history of how these things usually go.. Cruz is toast.
So Cruz is now giving the FEC the requested information in regards to the $500K to the Carley campaign?
Sorry but the reality is that the man who wrapped himself in the Christian cloak really was wearing no clothes. Cruz is dead man walking. His entire political career is over.
If it weren’t for Trump I’d be voting for Cruz and wouldn’t give a hoot about this story.
If Cruz gets the nomination, I’ll vote for him, but it won’t make any difference because I’m in MA and he CAN’T win MA.
Just like he CAN’T win PA, OH, or FL.
So if he gets the nomination, Hillary wins.
That was harsh.
If he actually cheated, I hope it’s exposed, but this idea that he should have already filed suit is asinine. That story was carefully loaded with weasel words. It doesn’t say that Ted Cruz cheated, so there is virtually no actionable legal claim against the National Enquirer. A lawsuit might be a good political strategy, but at this juncture it would be laughed out of court.
We are toast! Trump and Cruz are both showing themselves incapable of wiping their own butts without smearing it on there faces. Even Hillary is looking competent compared to our clowns.
I have had it! I hope the RNC picks somebody else. It is the only way to stop Hillary.
