The Dallas Morning News is being widely slammed for a report on the political beliefs of Senator Ted Cruz’s 13-year-old daughter.
In a report published on Thursday evening, the newspaper noted that during a TikTok live, the 13-year-old said that she disagrees with most of her father’s political views.

The report noted that the child enjoys candy — another big shocker.
“Answering questions from followers on the social media application about the pros and cons of being related to a U.S. senator, Cruz’s 13-year-old daughter said she liked traveling and receiving candy and gifts in the mail. But she expressed dislike for her security detail, which she said follows her around her neighborhood and to her friends’ homes,” the report stated.
The newspaper took a beating on social media for the report.
Ted Cruz’s daughters are 10 and 13. we’re getting more “dirt” from minors than the president’s 51 year-old son. Our media is so gross https://t.co/xLqWbMnRbL

His daughter is 13 and the media is stalking and writing about her TikTok. Very sleazy and inappropriate. https://t.co/pRRM1Ux186

I’m not sure if it’s funnier that liberals think a kid disagreeing with her parents is unique and newsworthy, or that they actually think the dumb kid with no life experience is the one who’s right.

Minor children worth reporting on, Ashley Biden or Hunter Biden not.

During the video, the child said that she disagrees with many of her dad’s political beliefs and complained about her dad’s team editing her crop top shirt to be longer for their family Christmas card.
“A lot of people judge me based upon him at first glance,” the child said in the video. “But I really disagree with most of his views.”
The child’s TikTok account has since been made private.
