Donald Trump recently said at a rally in Iowa that he hears “A couple of states have a problem with Cruz’s Canadian birth. … ‘I hope this would not be a reason for his disqualification.’” Cruz discharged those charges by saying that the children of legal citizens born in foreign countries are themselves legal citizens.
Trump, apparently not wanting to let the issue die, this morning, at a Trump rally, held up a Photo of Cruz as an infant being held by what appears to be Adolph Hitler. Said Trump, “I’ve been hearing that Ted Cruz is the illegitimate love child of Hitler. Is it true? I don’t know. I guess it’s possible.”
Several Conservative pundits rushed to claim that the illegitimacy claim is invalid, that theories have existed for years that Hitler and Eva Braun were married toward the end in a secret ceremony in the Berlin Bunker.
Trump and Cruz are currently the top two Republican presidential candidates, according to polls. That makes both men top targets for political attack, apparently for each other.
Trump then held up another photo, of Cruz in an evening gown and makeup. He then help up another photo of Cruz holding a rifle backwards, muzzle to his shoulder, a confused look on his face.
Said Trump, “I let the photos speak for themselves.”
He then held up another photo, of Cruz hugging a polar bear cub, and another of him at a midnight showing of the movie, Barbarella.
Said Trump, “Hey, am I saying that Ted Cruz is a Nazi bastard, transvestite, non-shooting, Jane Fonda-loving environmentalist? No. I’m just saying, look at these photos and, you know, consider that, you know, it’s possible.”
Political analysts await the Cruz campaign to produce their own photographic salvo.
A spokesman for the Rubio campaign said, on condition of anonymity, “We’d fucking love some of those ridiculous attacks to come our way.”
