The National Enquirer dropped a huge bombshell on Wednesday claiming that Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz was cheating on his wife with five women, and the Twitterverse has gone crazy about the alleged sex scandal.
The hashtag #CruzSexScandal had people buzzing Friday, poking fun at the candidate and comparing him to Bill Clinton.
“It was only a matter of time, scandal season has arrived#CruzSexScandal,” one user tweeted.
“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, that woman, that woman, and … that woman. #cruzsexscandal,” wrote another.
On Wednesday, The National Enquirer published a story accusing Cruz of having affairs with multiple mistresses.
“Private detectives are digging into at least five affairs Ted Cruz supposedly had,” a source told the National Enquirer. “The leaked details are an attempt to destroy what’s left of his White House campaign!”
According to the Enquirer, two of Cruz’s alleged lovers include a “foxy political consultant and a high-placed D.C. attorney.”
Although the story has not been confirmed, Washington Times reporter, Drew Johnson, wrote, “COMING CLEAN: From what I know, at least 2 of the women names as Cruz mistresses by the National Enquirer are accurate.”
Breitbart writer Allum Bokhari tweeted Thursday, “I hate getting scooped.”
On Feb. 2, he had tweeted, “Some people think #MicrosoftRubioFraud is the big scandal from last night. Wait until they hear the bombshell about Ted Cruz.”
Representatives from Cruz’s campaign have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

I don't know about you, but putting TED CRUZ in the same sentence with SEX is not a concept one wants in the mind. https://t.co/Q3wqvRhgfq

Ted Cruz is kinda like Frank Underwood on House of Cards, minus the sex appeal. Cruz is ugly as sin

"Ted Cruz sex scandal" is the one phrase I neither expected nor wanted to show up in this election circus. We are in the darkest timeline.

I highly doubt there's a Ted Cruz sex tape, but if there is, for all our sakes, whoever has it needs to keep it to themselves. ????

Ted Cruz having sex out of wedlock and also having sex for pleasure and not reproduction are pretty big sins, man. Straight to hell.

That moment when you're grateful you're not a political reporter so you don't have to look into rumors about Ted Cruz's sex life. #blessed
