#CruzSexScandal is Taking Over Twitter Thanks To a National Enquirer Bombshell

After Donald Trump threatened to go after Ted Cruz and his wife a few days ago, The National Enquirer beat him to the punch.

The rag magazine’s March 25th issue threw a huge bombshell into the 2016 GOP primary: Ted Cruz has allegedly been having an affair with five different women. Frankly I’m surprised he was able to get one, but five?! Something seems off and I’m calling bullsh*t… but I digress.

The Enquirer managed to maintain some form of integrity by not naming names and just publishing several pixelated photos. But because the Internet is full of geniuses, three of the women in those photos have been “identified.”

So who the hell are these women? According to Twitter, here are their names, from right to left: Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson, former Carly Fiorina staffer Sarah Isgur Flores, and former Cruz communications director Amanda Carpenter. Carpenter is married, while Flores and Pierson are not.

Of course a trending hashtag — #CruzSexScandal– has already taken over Twitter, and the reactions are pure gold:

There's no way five live human women could have found #TedCruz attractive…

Even if this isn’t true, those were absolutely hilarious. The magazine’s allegations come just days after Donald Trump accused Cruz of using compromising photos of his wife to further his campaign, to which Cruz profusely denied. Naturally, this didn’t satisfy the GOP frontrunner, who then shot back with this tweet:

Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 23, 2016

Was this the secret he was dying to out? We’ll be keeping an eye on his Twitter… you know those comments will be coming any minute now.

UPDATE:

Donald Trump has since addressed the scandal on Twitter, his favorite platform:

His own wife can't even trust him! #CruzSexScandal pic.twitter.com/cH8g2g65V4

Ted Cruz has been tweeting up a storm, but has yet to respond to allegations.
