Even Ted Cruz’s own daughter can’t stand him

While going after voters in Iowa this weekend, Ted Cruz wanted to the show the cameras what a little PDA from the Cruz household looks like.

Showing affection is a given on the campaign trail. The photo ops might not always go as planned, but it’s especially horrific when your own children show the world what an insufferable prick you are.

While going after voters in Iowa this weekend, Ted Cruz wanted to the show the cameras what a little PDA from the Cruz household looks like.


Okay, anyone who’s a parent knows that your children will make things cringingly embarrassing just to spite you. But good lord, not in front the cameras.

    I CANNOT STAND TO LOOK AT OR LISTEN TO Ted Cruz. There is something about him that is just disgusting to me.

    However, this video is simply dumb. How many of those reading this had kids that rejected some show of affection from you? The relevance of this video, due to it being a moment in time that could change the very next moment, is simply not significant.

    Agreed. No love lost for Cruz, but leave the young kids out of politics.

    Agree. Dump this now. I cannot stand the guy. But no one deserves their kid being a brat to be fair game. No one.

    He is so slimy, he would probably rape his daughters and then tell them it was their fault.

    I don’t think that’s his daughter. His two girls were just in a cringeworthy commercial with him and they appeared much younger and much blonder than this child.

    What evidence do you base this comment on? It’s pretty harsh and as far as I can tell Cruz hasn’t doesn’t anything to show that he should be questioned about his ethics, let alone have rape ascribed to him.

    It’s not about dragging the daughter into anything. IMHO it’s about Cruz displaying such an incredible lack of judgement. The moment clearly wasn’t there so why use brute force to take an uncomfortable situation and make it so awkward and somewhat creepy?

    Repeating GOP talking points as if their statement was proof enough only works on those inclined to believe things without evidence (apparently Cruz supporters).

    Perhaps that was his daughter, but the girl pictured certainly wasn’t 7 years old! More like 13 or 14! And it appears that the girl in question was on the autism spectrum. So no matter how much I dislike Cruz, there’s something not honest about this reporting.

    It’s not that the little girl wanted nothing to do with him( although I couldn’t fathom that ever happening with any of my children ) what did show itself as being F-ed up was that he kept eyeing the camera for some type of approval. And that my friends is an example of what I would call a father without a soul…

    And the thing that is so weird and unsettling about it is the fact that all other teenage daughters love a kiss on the cheek in public from their dad, and they are never moody. Cruz’s daughter is really unique in this respect, so he must be weird and un-electable, and all of his viewpoints are invalid.

    I don’t believe in bringing politicians’ children under scrutiny, but Cruz is the one who has brought his family into the campaign. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hO_MkcZh-VY (Love his mother rolling her eyes at him in this.)

    This little moment does have relevance in that the girl, and she doesn’t seem to be his daughter, is clearly saying “NO” to being touched or kissed and Cruz’s response is to force it to happen.

    He’s forcing it even as he’s being filmed–his need to make this happen, to ignore her clearly indicated refusal of consent, and impose his touch on her, is simply creepy as hell.

    Do you live in a red state with a Republican governor and/or majority legislature that is deliberately, evilly keeping the Medicaid option out- to try to, as their portly college- dropout leader, Rush Limbaugh, suggested, “Make this President ( and by extension the American people living in America with him as leader) “FAIL!?”” Those states that DO have it ( the Medicaid part), generally LOVE Obamacare. Ask an Ohioan. Jobs have been CREATED since Obama has become President. When Bush was about to leave office, the USA was LOSING 700,000 jobs a MONTH. There has been a record number of months of steady growth under President Obama. Unemployment is low. Gas prices are low. President Obama Revived the Auto Industry. President Obama took down bin Laden. Millions of Americans with serious preexisting conditions were able to LIVE because Persistent, brilliant President Obama expended the political capital to get Health Care (Insurance) and the life-saving treatment that gave them. See: Spike Dolomite Ward for one of them. President Obama signed a much-needed Equal Pay Bill into Law. etc. etc. etc.

    If President Obama were white he’d be on Mt. Rushmore by now.

    Do you live in one of those Red States with a Republican governor and/or legislature that deliberately kept Medicaid out to hurt their own populace just to keep the ACA from being as effective and to try to make it “look bad?” People in states that have Medicaid in the ACA are happy with the ACA. Ask an Ohioan. Ohio’s governor was one of the few Republicans with sense enough to praise the ACA and accept the Medicaid. But Most Republican governors of Red States have apparently been too busy listening to their blowhard, college drop-out leader, Rush Limbaugh in his disgusting hope that “this President — and by extension the country he serves — “FAILS!” ?!? Again– they would –and DID– hurt their own constituents to TRY to do that. Shaking my head.

    And jobs? Under Bush the USA was losing 700,000 jobs a month! But Under President Obama there has been a record number of months of steady growth for a total of 13 million new jobs, as was clearly, accurately stated by FOX host, Chris Wallace.

    Unemployment is low. Gas prices are low. President Obama Revived the Auto Industry. President Obama got bin Laden. Millions of Americans with serious preexisting conditions LIVED because brilliant, persistent President Obama expended the political capital to get Health Care (Insurance) and the lifesaving treatment included with it. See: Spike Dolomite Ward for one of them. President Obama signed a much-needed Equal Pay Bill into Law. etc. etc. etc.

    What is brilliantly Pragmatic about the President’s Affordable Care Act is the PREVENTIVE piece of it (if Republicans will allow it to be left alone). Imagine many, Many, MANY fewer cases of heart disease, diabetes, etc. in our population. The savings would be ASTRONOMICAL. The program would pay for itself down the road. And a healthier population is a more productive population.

    If President Obama were white he’d be on Mt. Rushmore by now.

    ?!? Do you live in one of those Red States with a Republican governor? Do bad for you. Many of them deliberately, crazily hurt their own people (constituents) by refusing the Medicaid piece that makes it affordable, Just so they could insanely pretend The Affordable Care Act was not “effective” when it is. Ask an Ohioan. Even though Ohio’s governor was Republican at the time, he had enough sense to accept Medicaid and HELP his own fellow citizens– and he praises “Obamacare.” Too many other Republican governors/legislatures were apparently still following the marching orders of their college-dropout leader, Rush Limbaugh, who strongly suggested that they make “This President (and by extension the American people living during his tenure) “FAIL.”” ?!?

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
