Ted Cruz Defends Fired Curt Schilling in New Ad

Constitutional conservative presidential candidate Ted Cruz defended former major league pitching great Curt Schilling who was fired by Disney’s ESPN for posting on his Facebook wall that grown men shouldn’t use girls’ bathrooms.

Called “Common Sense,” the 20-second video takes a swipe at New York liberal Donald Trump, the current GOP frontrunner, with the narrator in the ad asking, “If Donald Trump can’t be trusted with common sense, why would we trust him in the White House?”

Perhaps pandering (or does he really believe it — who knows?), Trump on Tuesday came out in favor of men using girls’ bathrooms, depending on how they “feel.”

“People go, they use the bathroom that they feel is appropriate,” Trump said on NBC’s Today Show on Thursday.

The Cruz ad says that “Curt Schilling was fired by the PC police,” a reference to political correctness that Donald Trump has previously spoken out against. Ted Cruz immediately responded to Trump’s statement, saying:

“Donald Trump isn’t going to defeat political correctness; today he bowed down to it.”
