Ted Cruz is using 20 year old footage of Donald Trump saying he’s pro-choice in attack ads against Trump. Asked about it in a town hall tonight, on CNN, Cruz said they’re not lies, they’re Trump’s own words. Never mind the fact that they’re twenty years old.
On top of that…
Trump has been on record as being pro-life at least as far back as 2011. So, with that in mind, I thought I’d share a video that summarizes Cruz’s more recent lies pretty effectively…
It’s obviously a “pro-Trump” video, but it’s also simply footage of Donald Trump’s own words (a phrase Cruz threw around a lot when questioned about his inaccurate attack ads against Trump), contrasted with what Cruz has been claiming about Trump.
And understand, I myself am pro-choice, this is one of the few things I don’t agree with Donald Trump on. But I also don’t think it’s terribly relevant whether the President is pro-life or pro-choice, and when people have a foundation of reasoning that their opinions are based on, I can respect those even if they’re directly at odds with my own. Bottom line: Trump is pro-life.
He also fully intends to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare).
And of all the people running on either side of the political aisle, he’s arguably one of the strongest advocates of 2nd Amendment rights, of responsible gun ownership, and saying otherwise is lying.
Love Trump or hate him, I don’t think that’s even relevant to being able to see that Cruz is trying to bullshit people, and that he’s not a trustworthy candidate. If he lies so freely and so smoothly about Trump’s various stances… what the hell else might he be lying about in his campaigning?
