Ted Cruz jumped on Donald Trumps recent comments regarding the highly-controversial bill in North Carolina, painting his rival as a closet liberal. Or ‘water-closet’ liberal in this case….
The bill, HB2, restricts LGBT people’s use of public bathrooms in the state based on the gender of their birth. Critics argue that it violates the rights of transgender people.
Though Trump didn’t call for a repeal of the bill, he didn’t defend it either. This left enough wiggle-room for the Cruz Camp to state that his views aligned with those of Hillary Clinton and other Dems; an angle that has plenty of historical support, yet may be too late to pull out of the sleeve.
