During a press conference in Evansville, Indiana, moments ago, Senator Ted delivered some of the harshest criticism he's every used against Donald Trump so far on the campaign trail.

In a last ditch effort to resurrect himself as the go-to 2016 GOP presidential nominee, Cruz unleashed a flurry of vicious attacks on Donald Trump, including citing him as a bully of women.

Cruz said, "and his strategy of being a bully, in particular is directed at women. Donald, has a real problem with women."

He played his own version of the "women's card," up during this interlude and melded it into Trump's braggadocios nature on infidelity.

Cruz continued, "Donald, is terrified by strong women - he lashes out at them." He continued to pound on Trump's support of convicted rapist, Mike Tyson.

He's alluding to HRC at this point and then praised his support of all the strong women around him. He then explained that the president has a massive bully pulpit to influence our children.

"Think about the next five years, the boasting, the pathological lying. Picking up the National Enquirer and accusing people of killing JFK. The bullying. Think about your kids, coming back and emulating this."

I would think parents are the strongest influence that kids have, but I digress.

"Donald Trump, is a serial philanderer and he boasts about it."

"The President of the United States talks about how great it is to commit adultery. How proud he is, describes his battles with venereal disease as his own personal Vietnam."

Wow, just wow.
