Dallas Morning News made a desperate move recently, reporting on the 13 year old daughter of Senator Ted Cruz.
Former Cruz spokesman, Ron Nehring, called the story ‘utterly classless’ in a tweet.
An utterly classless story from the @dallasnews.
She's just 13, not an elected official. Let it go. https://t.co/ACTM6jmybC

The Dallas Morning News headline read, “Ted Cruz’s daughter takes to TikTok to discuss life as senator’s kid.”
“The article focused on a TikTok video the 13-year-old posted where she discussed the benefits and drawbacks of being a senator’s daughter. Cruz has two daughters, ages 10 and 13,” reports Fox News.
“Answering questions from followers on the social media application about the pros and cons of being related to a U.S. senator, Cruz’s 13-year-old daughter said she liked traveling and receiving candy and gifts in the mail,” the Dallas Morning News story reads. “But she expressed dislike for her security detail, which she said follows her around her neighborhood and to her friends’ homes.”
“Critics pounced on the story, including Republican Texas state Senator Drew Springer. He tagged the outlet and two of its employees in a tweet telling them not to contact him,” reported Fox News.
Hey @DallasNews, @RobertTGarrett , @MorrisReports do you need my kids TikTok account to do your next story? Because don’t bother calling me.
Bob & Allie y’all are better than this. #txlege #LeaveKidsOutOfPolitics https://t.co/XfskCBFEWV
