Trump spokesperson Katrina Pierson continues to delight anyone who loves watching slow-burning dumpster fires. Today she said that the campaign manager for Cruz made someone commit suicide with his attack ads.
Mediaite explains the odd accusation:
Jeff Roe is Ted Cruz’s current campaign manager. Last year he was an advisor to the Texas senator before he ran for president. And he was behind an ad that some believed had pushed a political candidate to kill himself.
Tom Schweich ran for Governor of Missouri last year and had publicly said he believed he was being targeted by an anti-Semitic whisper campaign (he wasn’t even Jewish). After he killed himself, some had pointed the finger at the ad Roe ran, which said “he could be easily confused for the deputy sheriff of Mayberry.”
At the time, Roe spoke very personally about the tragedy, and said that had he known about Schweich’s mental state at the time, he wouldn’t have run the ad.
I mean, this sounds like only remotely related to the guy, but never put anything past the Trump people to lie about.
