Default Trump's latest gaff used against him

Good for Cruz. Hilary would hammer Trump even harder come election time.

Cruz team attacks Trump for touting Tyson endorsement, while in Indiana | Fox News

The campaign for Sen. Ted Cruz and one of its PACs are attacking rival Donald Trump for his allegiance to former pro boxing champion Mike Tyson, who was convicted of rape in Indiana, which holds a primary Tuesday.

ADVERTISEMENT

The Trusted Leadership PAC has released an online video pointing out that Trump said Tyson, a Trump supporter, was “railroaded” in the 1991 conviction.

“One of the leaders in the effort to keep Tyson out of prison is Donald Trump,” a TV news-reader is heard saying in the 30-second video, over archived moving and still pictures of Trump, including one of him beside Tyson.

Trump argued at the time, and replayed in the PAC ad, that the female victim, a teen beauty pageant contestant, was seen dancing with Tyson and willingly went to his Indianapolis hotel room.

The front-running Trump seemed to spark the pro-Cruz attacks by unexpectedly saying this week that “Iron Mike” had tweeted an endorsement and “All of the tough guys endorse me.”

On Friday, Cruz told reporters in Indiana: “I’ve got news for Donald Trump: Rapists are not tough guys.”

That same day, Carly Fiorina, Cruz’s newly announced running mate and a former 2016 GOP presidential candidate, also blasted Trump.

"Sorry, I don't consider a convicted rapist a tough guy,” she said, according to Politico.

Trump leads Cruz in the delegate count 996-to-565, on the way toward getting 1,237 to secure the nomination before the GOP’s nominating convention in July. Trump convincingly won New York earlier this month, then on Tuesday won big in all five Northeast states holding primaries.

Indiana is being considered by many, including Cruz, as the Texas senator's last chance to stop Trump’s run to the nomination. Ohio GOP Gov. John Kasich trails Trump and Cruz, with 153 delegates.

On Thursday, Greg Garrison who prosecuted Tyson, questioned on his conservative talk radio show, why Trump’s handlers would allow him to make such a comment.

“Tough is one thing, a serial rapist is quite something else,” Garrison also said.

The PAC reportedly spent $375,000 for the online ad buy, which also features the now-retired Tyson recently saying: “I like Trump, yeah. He should be president.

Hillary might not want to open that can of worms, considering she's recently been endorsed by the KKK, etc.

This isn't about who endorses you. It's about Trump bragging about the endorsement and then Trump's past has caught up with him. Trump is caught on tape blaming the 17 year old girl at a time I think Trump was profiting off of Tyson. He words aren't going to play well with the voters. He won't turn around his high negatives among women and will turn off most under 30 for blaming the victim instead Mike for raping her.

I'm not trying to excuse Trump's behavior but do wish to point out that Hillary has quite a few skeletons in her closet. If she chooses to bag on trump over Tyson and Trump's foolish comments about the girl, she is opening Pandora's box with all of her stupid stuff.

I do understand but now Trump has taken off the table one of his best weapons he only a month or so ago touted about.

Especially all the sexual misconduct committed by Slick Willy which she tried to sweep under the carpet. What about Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broderick, Connie Hamzy, Eileen Wellstone, Sandra Allen James, Christina Zercher, Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers?

Or what about the women he has had affairs with: Monica Lewinsky, Elizabeth (Ward) Gracen (Extramarital One night stand), Dolly Kyle Browning – Extramarital Affair in 1992) Sally Perdue (Extramarital Affair), Lencola Sullivan ( Extramarital Affair), Elizabeth Ward (Extramarital Affair), Susie Whitacre (Extramarital Office Affair), Bobbie Ann William (Extramarital Affair). These are also something Broom Hilda may not want to discuss.

Then there are these: 22 Year-Old Yale Student (Sexual Assault): In 1972, a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, a law student at the college.

University of Arkansas Student (Sexual Assault): In 1974, a female student at the University of Arkansas complained that then-law school instructor Bill Clinton tried to prevent her from leaving his office during a conference. She said he groped her and forced his hand inside her blouse. She complained to her faculty advisor who confronted Clinton, but Clinton claimed the student ”came on” to him.

A former Little Rock prostitute who said Mr. Clinton fathered a child by her when he was the governor of Arkansas.

Broom Hilda may want to avoid this sort of topic.

No doubt flags but since when have democrats really cared about those things or many other things? Voters will care about Trump and his slut-slamming statement which won't win him any votes. It won't motivate the non-Democrat's to vote for Trump.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. Keep clinging to whatever you can.

....Edited by Champlain Islander... This isn't about Cruz as much as it is about Trump and him as a train wreck.
