Joseph Goebbels said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” While I realize that Goebbels was Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, in no way am I comparing Trump’s campaign to Hitler. Such comparisons are over-the-top nonsense. Trump is not Hitler.
I only refer to Goebbels’ quote because it is the disingenuous tactic Trump has used against Ted Cruz. Trump has relentlessly repeated his outrageous “huge” lies that Cruz is a cheater, liar and Washington DC insider. Folks, nothing could be further from the truth. And yet sadly, Trump’s unfounded lies have taken root in the minds of some voters.
Cruz did his homework, thoroughly studied the delegate rules. He “legally” maximized his opportunities to win delegates. Cruz’s approach to securing delegates proves his presidential executive qualifications; his instincts to dive into an issue, study it inside and out and implement the most effective strategy. Cruz’s political history broadcast that, as president, he will apply the same laser-focus tackling issues; implementing wise and informed solutions most beneficial to we the American people.
Amazingly, Trump has gotten away with his huge lie that Cruz is a cheater, despite Trump benefiting from the same delegate rules as Cruz. http://nbcnews.to/22nZaKE
Trump’s Cruz-is-a-liar huge lie is so unfounded that it can only resonate with the clueless. Please produce evidence of what Cruz has lied about.
