Bad News for Clownface Trump: Ted Cruz Ruled a ‘Natural Born Citizen’

Posted by on Feb 03, 2016 at 8:10 am

Not that any of this will stop Trump or his psychotic lemmings from repeating this nonsense, but Ted Cruz has the law on his side.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz secured two major victories Monday, winning the Republican Iowa caucuses and also receiving a favorable decision from the Illinois Board of Elections, which confirmed his U.S. citizenship met the state’s primary ballot requirements.

The Illinois news got lost in the caucus coverage, which lagged into Tuesday morning and absorbed much of the media’s attention.

The GOP senator has had his presidential bid challenged in recent months by Iowa GOP runner-up Donald Trump, who claimed Cruz’s Canadian birthplace disqualifies him from being president. Two Illinois objectors, Lawrence Joyce and Williams Graham, also agreed that Cruz’s citizenship did not meet guidelines in the Article II of the Constitution. But the board of elections disagreed and cleared Cruz’s name for the March 15 primary.

“The Candidate is a natural born citizen by virtue of being born in Canada to his mother who was a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth,” the board said, explaining Cruz met the criteria because he “did not have to take any steps or go through a naturalization process at some point after birth.”

The idea this is even an issues shows you how absurd this election cycle has become. And after his stinging defeat Monday night, he’s still talking about it.

Trump slammed Cruz for allegedly playing dirty tricks in Iowa, and said the senator’s status as a native of Canada would prevent him from ever becoming president.

“You watch the Democrats, they’re already said they’re gonna sue him,” Trump said. “He gets the nomination, they’re gonna sue his ass off.”

Maybe someone should let him know.

    Sorry, the Illinois Board of elections is not a court.

    This has no legal merit whatsoever.

    And you believe political statements from Illinois???

    yeah were psychotic lemmings because were tired of politicians in general and republican politicians in particular who continue to or by omission of action allow the destruction of our country

    were psychotic lemmings because we support a guy thats pro life pro 2nd amendment pro military pro tax reform anti immigration and an islamorealist

    many of us trump supporters have been straight republican ticket voters for years and years and in my case decades

    were not doing it anymore…were not just going to hand over our vote to somebody because they have an r behind their name sorry we want something different and new

    look no further than bruce rouner in illinois…not a politician never been elected to office before now hes governor

    hes been fighting the entrenched democratic power structure lunacy there since day one and hasnt allowed a budget for months and months and now

    he hasnt rolled over with the excuse oh we tried our best and this is the best we could do so we caved like paul ryan did

    he could have given up months ago and said well you know i tried but this is a blue state afterall

    hes got almost 2:1 democrat majorities going against him in the illinois general assembly and hes still fighting

    we have republican majorities in the senate and the house what has it gotten us nothing

    insanity: doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting different results

    I don’t think that clearing someone to be put on the ballot is the same thing as qualifying for President. Mickey Mouse and Pluto have been known to make the ballot.
