At a Ted Cruz press conference in Wisconsin, on Monday Carly Fiorina jumped in to defend Ted Cruz after he fell silent to questions on his marriage.
Cruz wouldn’t answer when the Daily Mail asked him on whether he has ever been unfaithful to his wife.
That’s when Carly stepped in–
** Carly tried to deflect blame on Donald Trump when everyone knows it was the Rubio campaign and GOP elites who shopped the Ted Cruz cheating scandal weeks ago.
The Daily Mail reported:
Ted Cruz declined to answer a question on Monday about whether he has ever been unfaithful to his wife Heidi.
‘Senator Cruz,’ DailyMail.com asked him, ‘can you please swat down more definitively this National Enquirer piece by telling us on the record that you’ve never been unfaithful to your wife?’
The National Enquirer published a story last Wednesday that speculated about five women with whom the Republican presidential candidate was rumored to have had extramarital affairs.
Cruz has batted down the specifics of the story on numerous occasions since it appeared in supermarket checkout lanes.
But instead of making a blanket declaration that he has been faithful during the entirety of his 14-year marriage – a move that would effectively end the vicious news cycle – Cruz stood silently as campaign surrogate Carly Fiorina leapt in to intercept the question and change the subject.
‘This is an example of the media playing to Donald Trump’s tune,’ Fiorina, a former CEO of Hewlett-Packard, complained as she lobbed her own accusations of infidelity at the billionaire front-runner.
‘Donald trump is a serial philanderer, by his own admission,’ she said, with a flash in her eyes that betrayed disgust at the pointed question.
‘And in a week when we have had a terrorist attack in Brussels, a shooting on Capitol Hill, the president of the United States in the baseball stands with Raul Castro, and insisting that he be photographed in front of a portrait of Che Guevara with the two Castro brothers, we are talking about a scurrilous, ridiculous piece in the National Enquirer?’
