The Internet crusade to bring down Ted Cruz with a sex scandal

Can 4chan and Reddit manufacture a tabloid sex scandal that takes down a presidential candidate ?

They’re damn well going to try.

Donald Trump is incredibly popular on the social platforms, both of which are notorious for their juvenile pranks and subversive humor. It was 4chan, for example, that rigged Time’s Person of the Year poll to feature Kim Jong-un in 2012. 

Now Trump’s supporters there are rapidly organizing around tabloid reports that say Ted Cruz is a serial cheater. The goal is to dominate social media, push the news onto mainstream media, crush Cruz’s Christian conservative image, and ultimately end his challenge to Trump’s presidential run.

The new rumors come just days after Trump threatened to “spill the beans” on Cruz’s wife.
