Amy Lindsay is a blond, Texan actress – a self-described, conservative Christian. Her latest job was a role in a Ted Cruz political ad, ‘Conservatives Anonymous’. It turns out that she’s divorced – well that happens. And also that she has starred in numerous adult movies (softcore) – perhaps not so common.

Cruz’s campaign has pulled the ad. Which is a shame as it would have been popular viewing. It won’t hurt Lindsay’s career – and hopefully, she’s getting residuals. (h/t Fox News)

******************************************

Donald Trump has little regard for the truth. In fact, Winston Churchill may have had him in mind when he said, “Occasionally he stumbled over the truth but he always picked himself up and hurried on as if nothing had happened”. His lies are voluminous. So let’s pick one. Trump has estimated the cost of his border wall:

“It’s $8 billion.… And of the 2,000 [miles], we don’t need 2,000, we need 1,000 because we have natural barriers, et cetera, et cetera, and I’m taking it price per square foot and a price per square, you know, per mile, and it’s a very simple calculation.

Except that analysis of the costs of concrete walls already built suggest a cost more like $42 billion. His claim earned him ‘4 Pinocchios’ – their highest award for lying – from The Washington Post.

******************************************

When it comes to lying Trump is indefatigable. His compendium of lies won PolitiFact’s ‘Lie of the Year’ 2015. He is shameless – 78% of what he said was rated ‘mostly false’ or worse.

*********************************************

Trump may be blind to – or not care about – his record of prevarication. But he is ever vigilant to others straying from the path of truth. Blind to irony he tweets this:

**********************************************

Marco Rubio believes the rich have suffered enough. He’s not going to take it anymore. If elected, he will ease their pain. The top 1% will get a raise of $205,000. The top 0.1% a sweet $1.1 million. Here’s the breakdown:
