Cruz mocks Trans people while attacking Trump

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz mocked Transgender people while attacking rival Donald Trump in an April 25 speech in Indiana.

Referring to Trump's April 21 interview with NBC's Today Show, in which Trump criticized the new North Carolina law barring Trans people from gender-appropriate restrooms, Cruz labeled his rival's position as 'political correctness on steroids.'

He then proceeded to insult Transgender people and misrepresent gender identity.

'Earlier this week Donald Trump went on the Today Show and he decided to agree with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama that we need to allow grown men to use the little girls' bathrooms,' Cruz said.

'This is a matter of basic common sense. For Donald to agree with Hillary and Obama, that is political correctness on steroids.

'Let me make things real simple: Even if Donald Trump dresses up as Hillary Clinton, he shouldn't be using the girls' restroom.

'By the way I apologize for that image, it is going to haunt you at night, Donald in a bright blue pantsuit.

'Let me just say to Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show. Please give us that image.'

Cruz backs laws like the one passed recently in North Carolina and has claimed that he fears Trans folks present a threat to his daughters. He also supports so-called 'religious freedom' legislation that would make religious beliefs a legal excuse for discrimination against LGBT people.

Fortunately, the chances that Cruz will ever be president seem to be evaporating right before his eyes.

Trump crushed him in the April 26 Republican primaries, sweeping all five states that were up for grabs. In four of the five states - Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, and Rhode Island - Cruz finished third in a field of three, with even John Kasich beating him.

Political pundits now believe that Indiana, which votes May 3, is a must-win for Cruz.
