Senator Ted Cruz really has a hard time with the concept of humor and in his newest attack ad against Donald Trump, I guess, he must think this is funny. Really though, it's a disturbing attempt to paint Trump as a phony Republican, and using children to do his dirty work in this ad is pretty creepy.

I do believe Greg Gutfeld must have written the copy for this ad.

A new ad from Ted Cruz's campaign appeared on YouTube yesterday featuring a group of boys playing with a Donald Trump action figure.

“What’s he do?" a young boy asks in the ad.

His friend responds: “He pretends to be a Republican!”

Eerie fun ensues as three kids play with Trump, having the toy act out a handful of the repeated criticisms of the GOP's presidential frontrunner:

“I like bailouts for the banks!"

“I gave money to Pelosi, Reid and Anthony Weiner.”

“Hey Hillary, I’ll give you money to be my friend!"

Campaigns speaking through children can feel icky, and this ad gets a bit weird when a kid name-drops "Anthony Weiner."

The kids' play gets chaotic when the toy Trump sees a large doll house.

“I’m going to take your house with eminent domain and park my limos there!" the kid says as Trump. It's a reference to the development mogul’s use of eminent domain that’s come under fire from his opponents.

The children begin chanting "eminent domain!" as bewildered parents peek around the corner. Then a voiceover drops the curtain:

“We wouldn’t tolerate these values in our children. Why would we want them in a president?”

How did Anthony Weiner show up in this thing?

I know eminent domain is a big topic on the AM hate radio talk circuit, but most voters probably don't understand it or don't give a sh*t.
