Mother: Ted Cruz Did Not ‘Scare’ My Daughter

Ted Cruz talking about the world being on fire yesterday took a three-year-old girl by surprise. When Julie Trant spoke up, Cruz assured, “But your mommy’s here, and everyone’s here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better.”

But Julie’s mother Michelle responded in a radio interview today with Jeffrey Kuhner. She said that as a huge Cruz supporter, she told her daughter, “He’ll be the one that will put that fire out.”

She said her daughter then “looked at him as a hero” and was quite happy. As for the media coverage saying that her daughter was legitimately “scared” by Cruz, Trant just laughed it off.

She added, “She was actually calling him Uncle Cruz for the rest of the day.”

You can listen to her speaking out here, via The Kuhner Report:
