Watch: Ted Cruz Doles Out Parenting, Spanking Advice After Crowd Interruption

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 9.03.55 AMWhile making a routine campaign stop in La Porte, Indiana late Sunday, GOP candidate Ted Cruz — father of two — offered up some free parenting advice after a young man reportedly kept interrupting Cruz from his speech.

Evidently, upon being interrupted by the young boy, the Texas Senator used the opportunity to indirectly address the boys’ parents for their child’s outbursts.

The Texas Senator, currently polling in second place behind surging frontrunner Donald Trump for his party’s nomination, took his commentary as far as to indicate that his daughters get spanked at home when they’re out of line:

So can Cruz spank the competition on Tuesday and put himself in a position to force a contested convention? Unlikely, although he is making every effort to steal the state’s delegates from frontrunner Trump, whose commanding overall lead puts him in a good position to do well Tuesday. Trump still holds an 8 point lead heading into Tuesday’s primary according to the latest Real Clear Politics polling data.
