There may be speculation that Donald Trump had a hand in the National Enquirer story on Ted Cruz's alleged marital infidelities. However, in a Facebook post, Trump deflected blame and accused Cruz of being paranoid, drawing comparisons to the Enquirer stories about O.J. Simpson and John Edwards.

The National Enquirer story alleges the GOP hopeful had an affair with five women. Cruz has implicated the GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and his "henchman" of fabricating the story.

Cruz's accusation is based on a cryptic tweet by Trump on Monday, which threatened to "spill the beans" on Cruz's wife.

"Let me be clear, this National Enquirer story is garbage," Cruz said, speaking in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. "It is complete and utter lies. It is [a] tabloid smear" that quoted only one source: Roger Stone, Trump's chief political advisor.
