Being a “person in the business” of covering news, you make friends with a lot of individuals, and you also develop sources for stories. As one who publishes stories you have to make a judgment call on whether or not to go with a story or bury it because you don’t want to be the one to cause someone irreparable harm or their loved ones. I am not the first and will not be the last.
Donald Trump will be blamed for this and let me say beyond a shadow of a doubt he had nothing to do with this, and you can take that to the bank.
The story of Sen. Ted Cruz and extramarital affairs is not new. It’s been out there for a while now. The latest story published in the National Enquirer was done with faces blurred and without names. One of those faces I knew because she is a friend of mine and I had to reach out to her as this was troublesome to me in a huge way. She assured me while shocked about the idea Cruz even had time for even one; she responded to me in not too many words “That’s not me!” Throughout our conversation, you could tell by listening to her she was in shock he was being put into this discussion of cheating on his wife Heidi, but she kept assuring me “she never did anything” with the Texas Senator.
As for me, I know Trump is blameless as I’ve known about this story for months, and the people who were working on it have far-reaching abilities to check things as phone records and such. I would classify them as very thorough in what they do, but they were not part of the National Enquirer affair leak.
From the National Enquirer:
Presidential candidate Ted Cruz is trying to survive an explosive “dirt file” on the finger-wagging conservative senator! And the new issue of The National ENQUIRER — on newsstands now — reveals how the reports say the staunch Republican is hiding FIVE different mistresses!
“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” claimed a Washington insider.
“The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”
The ENQUIRER reports that Cruz’s claimed mistresses include a foxy political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney! There are also whispers of other intimate late-night sessions Ted has had in Washington — and even a wild sex worker makes the cut!
Again, my friend says she is not part of this group even though her picture was plastered up there on the tabloid. The lack of media covering this right now is also suspect as if this were Donald Trump, it would be all over the news 150 ways before Sunday. Let’s not call the National Enquirer smut news after stories they have broken that were true. I am willing to watch this play out as anyone else.
I know two other pictures up there also but I do have a working relationship with either so I couldn’t reach out to them. If this proves to be true, Cruz’s campaign is over. We shall see.
Do you think the National Enquirer story is legit? Do you think it’s a hit job on Cruz? Share your opinions (below) and let me know you feel about this breaking news.
