Ted Cruz’s ‘Celibate’ Defense Of Trump Backfires On Him In Spectacular Fashion

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) desperately (and pathetically) tried to defend failed former president Donald Trump during an appearance on Fox News last night and only succeded in humiliating himself and the ex-president with a bizarre claim that no one thought the Donald had been “celibate” his entire life.

Speaking with Fox host Sean Hannity regarding Trump’s ongoing criminal trial in Manhattan for allegedly falsifying business records and interfering in the 2016 election by paying hush money to adult film star Stormy Daniels to hide an extramarital affair he had with her.

“The testimony of Stormy Daniels was salacious. That was the point of it. Listen, there is no person on planet Earth that believes Donald Trump has been celibate all his life,” Cruz insisted. “That is not news. But they want to drag him through the gutter because this is a political smear job. It’s not about the rule of law and it’s frankly– it’s tragic what is happening because the rule of law is important. It protects all of us. This is what banana republics do.”

Of course, Trump isn’t on trial for the affair he had, or even for the $130,000 he paid to Daniels. But his actions do suggest he did so in order to hide the information from voters, especially after release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” interview in which he bragged that he enjoyed grabbing women “by the pussy” and kissing them against their will.

Online critics lit into Cruz, branding him a hypocratic enabler of sexual assault who’s always eager to defend Trump, no matter how disgusting his behavior might be.
