Cruz Slams Trump’s Transgender Bathroom Comments: ‘Have We Gone Stark Raving Nuts?’
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz slammed his GOP rival Donald Trump Thursday morning after Trump made comments supportive of letting transgender individuals use whatever bathroom they want.
“Donald on television this morning said, gosh, he thought that men should be able to go into the girl’s bathroom if they wanted to. Now let me ask you, have we gone stark raving nuts?” he told a Maryland crowd to applause.
Cruz attacked Trump’s position as “political correctness,” asking, “Are there any parents of daughters here? I am the father of two little girls. Here is basic common sense; grown adult men– strangers– should not be alone in a bathroom with little girls.”
“And that’s not conservative or liberal, that’s not Republican or Democrat, that’s basic common sense,” he concluded.
