The National Enquirer Runs Story of Multiple Ted Cruz Affairs…. The National Enquirer should be taken with a grain of salt, but they were accurate for presidential hopefuls Gary Hart, Jesse Jackson and John Edwards. They have posted disguised pictures of five alleged mistresses, three of whom are now identified publicly, and one of whom is close to the Trump campaign…so perhaps Trump knows.
Too early to tell if it’s true yet. Because Cruz is running as an Evangelical, this will go especially badly for him if it turns out to be mainly true.
It seems a large swath of the political media knew Ted Cruz has affairs, and prior to “Super Tuesday” they wanted it to come out so they could take down Cruz and help their guy Rubio. The various editors and editorial boards of the newspapers didn’t want to go there. Perhaps this is why Kasich stayed in the race.
UPDATE: Trump says he doesn’t know if the National Enquirer story is true. Ted Cruz denies National Enquirer allegations of infidelity… says Trump “henchmen” behind story, which Trump denies.
UPDATE: Forceful denial of Cruz affair by another of the identified women.
ANALYSIS: It’s most likely true, but if the MSM doesn’t care about it, then the story sort of just disappears. (On a Pro-Trump website.)
UPDATE: Cruz denies it all:
I want to be crystal clear: these attacks are garbage. 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 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.
A strong denial, and strong attack on Trump. Please don’t spread the meme about Cruz and mistresses without watching this!
