Ted Cruz: Drudge Report Is ‘the Attack Site for the Donald Trump Campaign’

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) told a local radio show in California on Monday morning that the Drudge Report, the most popular conservative news website, has “become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign.”

Cruz was interview on The Mike Slater Show on KFMB 760 AM. Host Mike Slater asked Cruz (15:16), “What do you think of Drudge Report lately? Not even about Trump, but their anti-Christian headlines?”

Cruz responded:

Look, Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left and the excesses of liberalism, and about the past month the Drudge Report has basically become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign. And so every day they have the latest Trump attack. They’re directed at me. It — by all appearances, Roger Stone now decides what’s on Drudge, and most days they have a six-month-old article that is some attack on me, and it’s — whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge.

By the way, they no longer cover news. Remember they used to have things like election results? They don’t put those on Drudge anymore. When we win a state, suddenly the state doesn’t matter. You know Colorado — there was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado. That wasn’t news, because — I mean listen, that’s fine. If people want to get on the “Trump train,” they can. I actually think we need real and meaningful solutions to the problems in this country, and as president my focus is going to be on three things: jobs, freedom and security.

My number one priority is bringing jobs back to America, raising wages for everyone, making it easier for people struggling to achieve the American Dream. That’s my focus. I’m going to let others worry about the silly political game and the circus.

Slater returned to talking about Drudge: “I’ve always thought it interesting when the debate is still going on and and they’ll put a poll up, who won the debate. It’s literally in the middle of the debate, and they say who won the debate — and then Trump walks off the stage and says, ‘Well, everyone says I won’…”.

    What can you expect from a queer that hangs around with Ann Coulter?

    Drudge has been drinking the Trump kool-aid for longer than just the past month. He’s been in the tank for Trump from the get-go.

    I never was a Drudge fan. Just never liked the site…the format of it…whatever.

    Drudge was once a go to site for me twice a day but no longer. The moment it attacked Cruz’s faith it was dead to me. I expect that from leftists.
    I had the same issue when FR allowed threads attacking Cruz faith with that silly dominionist accusation.
