CHARLESTON, S.C. — A pro-Ted Cruz robocall directed at South Carolina voters was uncovered on the eve of the state’s primary and it attacks Donald Trump for supposedly endorsing LGBT causes.
In the message, an announcer tells listeners to “check out how Trump answers this” question from a lesbian, according to a late Friday report from Buzzfeed.
The call then plays a clip of a self-declared lesbian asking The Donald if we should expect more “forward progress on equality for gays and lesbians” if he’s elected president.
“Well, you can. And look, that’s your thing, and other people have their thing. We have to bring all people together,” Trump responds in the clip.
The announcer then yells, “Stop!” and adds, “What’s he agreeing to?”
“It’s not about tolerance anymore,” the narrator answers. “It’s about mandatory celebration. It’s about forcing people to bake cakes and photograph gay weddings. Forcing clergy to officiate. It’s about transgender bathrooms in your child’s school. It’s about tearing down our Judeo-Christian values. It’s about tearing down our America.”
The message was paid for by the Cruz supporting-Courageous Conservative Political Action Committee, which also put out the robocall that Trump was anti-Confederate flag. (RELATED: Pro-Cruz Robocall Hits Trump For Confederate Flag Stance: ‘He Ridicules Our Values’)
Both robocalls concluded with similar messages urging voters to vote “Ted Cruz for president — now, before it’s too late.”
