Ted Cruz hides behind Carly Fiorina and then refuses to answer simple question
In an interview yesterday in Wisconsin, Ted Cruz and his ‘paid-for endorser‘ Carly Fiorina stood to answer questions from reporters. Everything was the standard politician boilerplate replies until he was asked a question about his marriage to Heidi by a reporter from the Daily Mail UK. It was a very simply question, honestly asked, and it was a simple ‘yes or no’ question. What happened next was mindblowing.
Here is the segment of the interview uncut and unedited, decide for yourself. If you don’t want to listen to the whole thing skip to 6:30 to hear the question from the Daily Mail.
It was a yes or no question, and Ted Cruz was unwilling to answer it. All it would have taken was one word, “no”, and the moment would have passed without incident. Instead, Cruz allow Carly Fiorina to speak for him. When he did speak, he did not answer the question.
Why couldn’t Ted Cruz just simply have said “no”, I have never been unfaithful to my wife? It would have ended all debate and all controversy about the subject. But he was either unwilling or unable to do so. When Fiorina was answering for him, he looked visibly shaken and kept gazing at the ground. His only answer was to say that the ‘National Enquirer story’ was planted by Trump. But that has nothing to do with what the Daily Mail reporter asked him. He asked him if he was ever unfaithful to his wife.
He refused to answer that question.
When he went on to a new question you could hear the tremble in his voice. What should have been a slam-dunk moment to put all this behind him only served to make him look like he is hiding the truth.
What can we now conclude as to the truthfulness of his answers when he is asked a question? More and more it seems that he is living up to his name ‘Lying Ted’.
