Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have officially turned their Presidential run into a huge media circus. On Friday, “National Enquirer” released an article exposing Senator Cruz as a cheater. “Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” reported the tabloid. “The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”

As soon as the news broke, Cruz gave a public speech in which he denied all allegations and named fellow Presidential hopeful as the mastermind behind the rumors. “It is complete and utter lies. It is a tabloid smear. And it is a smear that has come from Donald Trump and his henchmen,” said Cruz. “Years from now, when my daughters Google this, they will read these lies.”

The GOP front-runner cleared his name via a statement, quoting: “I have no idea whether or not the cover story about Ted Cruz in this week’s issue of the National Enquirer is true or not, but I had absolutely nothing to do with it, did not know about it, and have not, as yet, read it…Cruz’s problem with the National Enquirer is his and his alone, and while they were right about O.J. Simpson, John Edwards, and many others, I certainly hope they are not right about Lyin’ Ted Cruz.”

Earlier this week, the Presidential candidates engaged on a Twitter feud when the real estate mogul received notice about a circulating ad that featured his wife, Melania Trump, posing naked. “Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a ‘GQ’ shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin’ Ted or I will spill the beans on your wife!,” Trump tweeted. It was later revealed that an anti-Trump group called “Make America Awesome” was responsible for the political advertisement.
