Ted Cruz Implies Spanking Would Help Protestor

At an event in Indiana on Sunday, Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz received a large round of applause when he said that if a child misbehaved the way a protestor did in interrupting his speech, that child would get a spanking.

After a protestor yelled out "you suck" during a rally in La Porte, Ind., Cruz said "You know one of the things that hopefully someone has told you, is that children should actually speak with respect. Imagine what a different world it would be if someone told Donald Trump that years ago. You know, in my household, when a child behaves that way, they get a spanking."

After Trump swept the last five primaries, Cruz is looking for a win in the Indiana primary. Cruz has previously shared his support for spanking. In Iowa, earlier this year, Cruz said, "In my house, if my daughter Catherine, the 5-year-old, says something she knows to be false, she gets a spanking."
