It wads Rubio who shopped the story. Knowing Washington is full of skunks Trump passed on it through B’bart and waited for the inevitable. Enquirer got Gary Hart right; Jesse Jackson right, Bill Clinton right; John Edwards right and the got the CUBAN MISTRESS CRISIS dead bang right Trump haters live with it!

The money quote, from one of these supposed mistresses:

“It’s ridiculous. Anyone with half a brain knows it’s false… I don’t think the article is true. I can’t see Cruz being like that… All I know is it’s not me. There’s a reason they don’t use my name. They know it’s BS.”

The quote does raise an interesting question: if you have a real story with trustworthy sources, why WOULDN’T you use names? They certainly published the name of Edwards’s mistress. Which is why I say that Edwards is the wrong comparison here. The accurate comparison is the way they took down Herman Cain with a trio of bullshit stories that would have left him having to deny extramarital affairs everywhere he went instead of talking about the issues. If you remember, one of those women was proven factually wrong about when she claimed she was accosted by Cain (he wasn’t even in town), and she was David Axelrod’s apartment neighbor.

Even the Trump Campaign spokesperson, (Katrina Pierson) that is one of the women, said to be Cruz’s mistress, says it’s not true. If it were, it would have been out there before now.
I wouldn’t be surprised to find Trump was behind it.

In Trump’s defense, if your own spokesperson is denying it, why would you push the story? Hoping if you sling enough mud something will stick?

Yes that was gross how they did Cain like that.

And here’s a confrontation on CNN between a Trump supporter and another of the women accused of being a Cruz mistress:

She’s pissed about being accused and the Trump supporter’s adamant insistence on pushing the allegations opens to question the Trump camp’s insistence that he is not behind the story.

This is seriously disgusting to me… Hopefully it is not true, but this political crap is gross. Trump (if he is involved) should ashamed of himself.

Well, on the National Enquirer said it, then it MUST be true! (SARC)

Hey, what the hell, why can’t I have a whole crapload of mistresses? Oh wait, I’m broke, so sorry……

Amazing. A PAC posts photos of Trump’s wife making unkind remarks and it isn’t Cruz’s fault even when his campaign talks about it before it runs. Cruz’s buddy Beck calls Trump’s wife a “soft core porn star” and it’s “not Cruz’s fault”.

Now a rag runs a story dissing Cruz and it’s Trump’s fault?

Remember when Trump went to bat for Cruz when the paper made monkeys of his kids? Remember when everyone but Trump stepped right past Carson when they missed his name at the debate? Yea, right, Trump’s the a***hole here.

You have that story completely wrong. Kasich was the one they forgot to introduce and Trump was already on the stage when they remembered:

Carson was introduced and beckoned onto the stage numerous times, but apparently he was lost in the ozone or was trying to be the last person out so he could steal Trump’s thunder. We’ll never know.

Once they were all out, they realized they’d forgotten Kasich.

poppajoe49 March 25, 2016 at 12:21 pm

Kasich could have never came on stage and he wouldn’t have been missed.

And the campaign gets even more bizarre….I can not wait till the day the national inquirer says that Trump had a meeting with Elvis and Ted Cruz communicates with space aliens by telepathy….And that Johnny Carson is now doing a tonight show from the moon, and Obama is from another planet…..

Joe Redfield March 25, 2016 at 1:05 pm

Wait a minute – are you suggesting that BO is NOT from another planet?

stinkfoot March 25, 2016 at 8:24 pm

No sane planet would have him.

CO2Insanity March 25, 2016 at 8:47 am

Well, on the upside he can compare himself to JFK.

JPTravis March 25, 2016 at 8:13 am

Followup: one of these supposed mistresses turns out to be a Trump campaign spokeswoman. Odd coincidence, eh?

poppajoe49 March 25, 2016 at 12:23 pm

I’M SHOCKED!!! Just not surprised.

Joe Redfield March 25, 2016 at 8:11 am

The National Enquirer seems to have misspelled ‘Clinton’.

KimmyQueen March 25, 2016 at 8:07 am

Blake’s got 9 women other than his (not yet that I know of) ex-wife and his new girlfriend?!?!

He’s a ho!
