Cruz… You And Your Family Are A Disgrace, by Karl Denninger

From Karl Denninger on a guest post at

Oh c’mon Ted, you can do better than that.

I want to be crystal clear: these attacks are garbage. For Donald J. Trumpto 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.

So let me see if I get this right.

First, you didn’t post a denial of the allegations — just that the “attacks” are alleged “garbage.” You’re a lawyer; you know damn well what you’re doing in that regard. Note that nowhere is the sentence “I have not engaged in any form of sexual contact with anyone other than my wife since we were married.” Why not?

Second, a SuperPac that supports you posted a (presumably stolen) image from GQ featuring, allegedly, Trump’s wife. It was targeted at Mormon women through your nice little “data mining” game in Utah. (Oh, and if that image wasn’t stolen but rather was purchased then it gets quite a bit more interesting because the transaction is a business record and can be subpoenaed, should anyone — like the FEC — care to do so.)

When called on it by Trump you said “that wasn’t me” — but didn’t disavow the PAC or the ad.

Now, a third party tabloid, which Trump does not own or control in any way, runs a story alleging you’ve had five affairs, including one with a hooker. This tabloid, I remind you, has a history of being right when it comes to political sex scandals, in that they nailed Jesse Jackson, Gary Hart and more.
