Cruz Blames His Supporters for Dirty Tricks, but Blames Trump for Violence

Ted Cruz is a hypocrite. And he has proven once again he will say anything to get elected.

The message below was sent out just prior to the Hawaii Caucuses, very reminiscent of the Cruz lies about Ben Carson in Iowa:

DropOutRubio

Ted Cruz issued the following statement, passing the buck and blaming an unauthorized supporter:

According to Cruz communications director Alice Stewart:

The at-issue emails and social media posting was not sanctioned by the Cruz for President campaign. The campaign became aware of the email this morning by press accounts and upon investigation learned that some volunteers in Hawaii were involved in the posting. The individual(s) who sent this had no authority from the campaign to do so.

The campaign’s counsel has contacted those responsible, who were in no way authorized by the campaign, and demanded that the material be removed and further use of official campaign logos for any purpose be terminated.

Ted Cruz Hawaii, for its part, claimed to be “officially sanctioned” by the Cruz campaign before its website was taken down.

So Cruz passes the buck when it comes to his own campaign and blames his supporters who actually state their communications were officially sanctioned.

But who does Cruz blame when a Donald Trump supporter punches a protester? Or when violent protests instigated and backed by Bill Ayers, BlackLivesMatter, Bernie Sanders supporters, F**K The Police, Occupy Wall Street and other thuggish groups? Well, he said:

“But in any campaign, responsibility starts at the top,” Mr. Cruz continued. “And when you have a campaign that disrespects the voters, when you have a campaign that affirmatively encourages violence, when you have a campaign that is facing allegations of physical violence against members of the press, you create an environment that only encourages this sort of nasty discourse.”

Any campaign except his own of course.

Ted Cruz is a hypocrite.
