I cannot believe that National Enquirer had come out with alleged sexual indiscretions of Senator Ted Cruz, and forgot about the indiscretions of other people of interest.
According to the latest news, Ted Cruz has five mistresses. Wow, what a superman he must be, pleasing five women and his wife!
Are we forgetting our 42nd President, Bill Clinton, who was impeached by the House of Representatives in 1998 for his relationship with Monica Lewinski? And his supposed relationship with Paula Jones? And many other women.
Are we, and National Enquirer, forgetting about John Edwards, a presidential candidate who — while his wife was dying of cancer — was having an affair with his aide, Richie Hunter, and fathered her child?
I don’t remember the National Enquirer writing any articles about Mr. Clinton having sex with other women under the same roof (or next door) to his wife and daughter.
I just remembered coming out of Chicago Joe Restaurant here in Las Vegas, some time ago and exchanging words with Governor and U.S. Senator Richard Bryan and his wife Bonnie. He told me, “Perly, politics is no longer fun, as we used to have it. Years ago it was totally different.”
Mr. Bryan was one hundred percent right. During our years nobody attacked the politicians’ wives, or families, for that matter. Mrs. Bryan was always a perfect lady, respected by everyone.
Donald Trump calls Ted Cruz “Lying Ted” and I wonder what he means by that. Donald Trump is a friend of the Clintons; does he want a bigger liar than Bill Clinton, when he lied to the American people by saying: “I did not have sex with that woman”? What was Clinton’s interpretation of sex? Oral sex is still sex, regardless of his mentality.
Presidential sexual indiscretions are nothing new. Anybody remember the Kennedys?
I honestly believe that when presidential candidates argue about the issues or any other matters they should leave their wives out of their problems; after all, those ladies are not running for any position.
What I have in mind right now is very scary and I don’t want to discuss it ahead of time, because it would be the worse thing to happen to the United States of America.
