I can’t think of a more unbecoming topic for the press to indulge its white-hot hatred of Ted Cruz than someone on his staff “liking” a porn site’s tweet and the media treating it like Watergate.
I thought it was bad when Donald Trump implicated Cruz’s father in President Kennedy’s assassination. But this is far worse. That was roller-derby politics. This is smut and vengeance.
When Dana Bash at CNN has nothing better to do than ask Senator Cruz to name the staff member who clicked “like,” then ask “I can’t believe I’m going to ask you this, but so you’re officially saying Ted Cruz is okay with people buying sex toys?” it’s not really news anymore.
Not when Sen. Bob Menendez is on trial for bribery–a real crime. Not when Seattle Mayor Ed Murray was forced to resign, but only after FIVE men went public with accusations that he abused them when they were youngsters. Both Menendez and Murray are Democrats, and are being treated with kid gloves by the press.
I implore the media: Stop it.
Stop the disgusting pornographic voyeurism. Stop the references to masturbation that Cruz’s hate-filled former college freshman roommate keeps flingling like a monkey throwing feces through zoo cage bars.
Stop promulgating terrible, potentially libelous smears against a sitting U.S. Senator.
Have they no self-respect at all?
Don’t answer that.
