Ted Cruz got North Carolina’s Transgendr Bathroom Law very right and Donald Trump got it horribly wrong


I gotta give credit where credit is due. 
Sen. Ted Cruz got it right when accessing the situation in North Carolina as I have stated on prior posts o this blog.  However, sad to say as a Trump supporter, Donald got it completely wrong and has staked himself in the position of being in the politically correct camp on the issue.  This is so ontrary to his other position against political correctness.

CBS News reports Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and GOP front-runner Donald Trump sparred Thursday over North Carolina's law requiring transgender individuals to use public restrooms that correspond with the sex listed on their birth certificates.

Earlier in the day, Cruz said the country has "gone off the deep end" over the issue of transgender bathroom use. "As you know, my daughters are 5 and 8. My 5-year-old knows the difference between boys and girls," Cruz told Glenn Beck in a radio interview.

"That's not a reasonable position, it is simply crazy and the idea that grown men would be allowed alone in a bathroom with little girls -- you don't need to be a behavioral psychologist to realize bad things can happen, and any prudent person wouldn't allow that," he continued. "And it is only the lunacy of political correctness, ESPN fired Curt Schilling for making the rather obvious point that we shouldn't allow grown adult men strangers alone in a bathroom with little girls, that's a point anyone who is rational should understand."

The Texas senator and GOP hopeful also tweeted about the issue Thursday morning:

Trump, asked about the issue during a town hall on NBC's "Today Show" Thursday morning, said North Carolina is "paying a big price" for its law requiring transgender individuals to use the bathroom that corresponds with their birth gender.

"Look, North Carolina did something that was very strong, and they're paying a big price. And there's a lot of problems," he said. "I heard one of the best answer I heard was from a commentator yesterday saying leave it the way it is right now. There have been very few problems.

Clearly, Trump hasn’t thought this issue through and he really needs to come up with a better explanation of his position.
