Ted Cruz Campaign Mocks Rubio’s High-Heeled Boots
Ted Cruz may be ahead of Marco Rubio in the polls, but his campaign is nipping at the heels of Marco Rubio.
According to Politico.com, “A Vote for Marco Rubio Is a Vote for Men’s High-Heeled Booties,” Rick Tyler, Cruz’s communications director, tweeted Tuesday, with the headline by New York Magazine’s women’s blog “The Cut.”
“The Cut” looks at the stylish black boots that the 5’ 10” Rubio wore on the campaign trail Monday and compares his footwear to that of One Direction boy-band member Harry Styles.
Brian Phillips, Cruz’s rapid response director, tweeted out the photo of Rubio’s boots with the cheeky comment, “Rubio supports Italian boots on the ground.”
It first started with a tweet from New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro, who first noticed Rubio’s boots Monday and put a photograph on Twitter.
