Establishment tool Ted Cruz has proven to be a master of distraction. Displaying the skills of a seasoned shyster he deftly turned a spat over his super PAC’s sleazy use of a semi-nude picture of Trump’s wife in a Utah attack ad and the Donald’s tit for tat response into an Oscar worthy turn at playing the victim. The media – totally in the bag for Cruz – responded accordingly and as a bonus, the attention served to bury that weird adultery scandal. Now “Lyin’ Ted” is deflecting attention from his delegate harvesting racket by accusing the hugely popular conservative website The Drudge Report of being a pro-Trump propaganda front.
As reported by Buzzfeed “Ted Cruz: “The Drudge Report Has Become The Attack Site For The Trump Campaign””:
Ted Cruz says the Drudge Report has become propaganda for Donald Trump’s campaign.
“Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left and the excesses of liberalism, and about the past month the Drudge Report has basically become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign,” Cruz said on the Mike Slater Show on Monday. “And so every day they have the latest Trump attack, they’re directed at me. By all appearances, Roger Stone now decides what’s on Drudge. And most days, they have six-month-old article that is some attack on me and it’s whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge.”
Cruz said Drudge doesn’t put election results on his site anymore now that he has started to win primaries and caucuses.
“When we win the state, suddenly the state doesn’t matter,” Cruz said. “There was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado. That wasn’t news.”
Tricky Ted’s comments represent a flip flop of Kerryesque proportions considering that in January when he had boasted that the same Drudge Report was firmly on his side. That however was way back when Marco Rubio was still the establishment’s new hope and well before they crawled into the Canadian born Texas preacher’s bed as their last option to block Trump from the nomination. Times change rather quickly these days and will continue to do so as the days tick down towards the brokered convention.
