National Enquirer Claims To Have A Scoop On Ted Cruz' Sex Scandal

I'm rolling my eyes, but the thing is, they were right about John Edwards.

Color me skeptical on this one, mostly because I don't think these women would bother with Ted Cruz.

But... The National Enquirer is dropping a big story which claims to have dirt on Ted Cruz and his alleged extramarital affairs with women, some of who are colleagues and others who are not.

According to the tabloid:

“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” claimed a Washington insider.

“The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”

The ENQUIRER reports that Cruz’s claimed mistresses include a foxy political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney!

How conveeeeeeenient.

The pictures they weakly disguise are pretty easy to match up with people. The image above suggests that Katrina Pierson is one of his so-called mistresses, as well as others.

It feels to me like Trump dropped a whole lot of garbage over at the Enquirer to discredit Ted Cruz, and that sense is backed up even more by the fact that one of the lovely ladies is supposedly Donald Trump's spokeswoman. That's just a little too convenient.

Still, it certainly seems to have lit up the right wing blogosphere a bit, particularly those who reside in the Trump camp.

Here's the thing. As much as I discredit almost anything coming from the National Enquirer, they are occasionally right when they report this stuff. They were correct about John Edwards, for example.

Unlike the Edwards story, this story is about things that happened in the past, rather than ongoing or happening now. It's hearsay at this point, but it leaves a nice pile of grist for the rumor mill.

And of course, everyone who goes to the supermarket and actually believes these rags will see that headline splashed across the checkout line while waiting to pay for their groceries.

That could make for an interesting back and forth between Trump and Cruz.

This is the kind of innuendo the right wing usually reserves for the left. Like the story Michael Savage amplified about Scalia being murdered in his bed, for example. Whether or not it's true, they'll just shrug and say, "It's out there!"

Popcorn, anyone?
