Ted Cruz came up with a weird and mostly creepy analogy for how voters should handle Hillary Clinton.

"In my house, if my daughter Katherine, says something she knows to be false, she gets a spanking," he said.

"Well, in America the voters have a way of administering a spanking."

"There will be accountability for Benghazi," Cruz promised. We will answer the question of who did what and why, and anyone who did wrong will be held accountable."

No one look now, but there have been seven investigations into Benghazi with no wrongdoing revealed. Trey Gowdy is now refusing to hold any more public hearings to receive testimony because the 11-hour debacle when they took Clinton's testimony was just too brutal to repeat.

But beyond the obvious with Benghazi, does anyone have a problem with a guy bragging about spanking his 5-year old daughter and equating that with spanking Hillary Clinton?

That's not just abusive. It's sexist and it's creepy.
