Sen. Ted Cruz responds strongly to a story in the National Enquirer this week that he is involved in five extra-marital affairs: "This garbage has no place in politics," he said.
TED CRUZ: The venue for this attack is not surprising, the National Enquirer, the CEO of the National Enquirer is an indvidual named David Pecker, who is a good friend of Donald Trump going back many years. In fact, the National Enquirer has endorsed Donald Trump, said he must by president. And so Donald, when he is losing, when he is scared, when Republicans are uniting against him, decides to peddle sleaze and slime.
You know, Donald is fond of giving people nicknames, with this pattern he should no be surprised to see people calling him "Sleazy Donald" because that is his first and last redoubt, to turn to sleaze.
This has no business in politics... Years from now, when my daughters Google this, they will read these lies, these attacks, that Donald and his henchmen and his buddies and the National Enquirer spread about.
