New Anti-Ted Cruz Ad Blows Smoke at 'Tough As Texas' Claim by Pointing Out He 'Kissed' Trump's 'Ass' Despite Attacks on His Family
A new ad against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) attacks the senator’s inability to stand up for his own family when President Donald Trump attacked them.
The ad features actor Sonny Carl Davis that starred in the Richard Linklater film “Bernie,” which features an epic scene explaining the cultural geography of Texas, the Dallas Morning News wrote.
“I mean, come on,” Davis said of Cruz as his “Bernie” character. “If somebody called my wife a dog, and said my daddy was in on the Kennedy assassination, I wouldn’t be kissing their ass. You stick a finger in their chest and give ’em a few choice words. Or you drag their ass out by the woodshed and kick their ass. Come on. Ted.”
In an interview, Dallas lawyer and Democratic donor Marc Stanley told the paper that it hones in on something people in Texas understand about Cruz.
“Sonny’s character really captures what most Texans understand about Cruz: he’s a spineless liar who puts his own ambition ahead of doing his job for the people of Texas,” he said.
