National Enquirer Claims To Have A Scoop On Ted Cruz Sex Scandal

Just when you thought the circus that is the Republican Party presidential primary could not get any more bizarre and ugly, the National Inquiry is about to drop a story about Ted Cruz's supposed mistresses.  Some think the story a little bit too convenient and smell the sent of Donald Trump mischief.  Personally, I don't know why anyone of either gender would want to have sexual contact with Cruz - he is repulsive!  The thought of him naked makes me want to vomit.  That said, it should be noted that it is ALWAYS the "family values" Republicans who wear their religiosity on their sleeves and condemn gays that are the ones caught having affairs themselves.  Crooks and Liars looks at the National Inquirer story.  Here are highlights:

The National Enquirer is dropping a big story which claims to have dirt on Ted Cruz and his alleged extramarital affairs with women, some of who are colleagues and others who are not.

According to the tabloid:

“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” claimed a Washington insider.

“The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”

The ENQUIRER reports that Cruz’s claimed mistresses include a foxy political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney!

How conveeeeeeenient.

The pictures they weakly disguise are pretty easy to match up with people. The image above suggests that Katrina Pierson is one of his so-called mistresses, as well as others.

It feels to me like Trump dropped a whole lot of garbage over at the Enquirer to discredit Ted Cruz, and that sense is backed up even more by the fact that one of the lovely ladies is supposedly Donald Trump's spokeswoman. That's just a little too convenient.

Still, it certainly seems to have lit up the right wing blogosphere a bit, particularly those who reside in the Trump camp.

Here's the thing. As much as I discredit almost anything coming from the National Enquirer, they are occasionally right when they report this stuff. They were correct about John Edwards, for example.
It's hearsay at this point, but it leaves a nice pile of grist for the rumor mill.

And of course, everyone who goes to the supermarket and actually believes these rags will see that headline splashed across the checkout line while waiting to pay for their groceries.  That could make for an interesting back and forth between Trump and Cruz.

This is the kind of innuendo the right wing usually reserves for the left. Like the story Michael Savage amplified about Scalia being murdered in his bed, for example. Whether or not it's true, they'll just shrug and say, "It's out there!"
