A Ted Cruz TV ad portraying Donald Trump as embodying liberal New York values--including support for abortion rights--exploits Trump saying in Iowa last year: "How stupid are the people of Iowa?"
The ad lacks some perspective. Trump uttered his "stupid" question in November, 16 years after he described himself as pro-choice. Notably, too, Trump was urging Iowans to doubt the accuracy of personal stories told by candidate Ben Carson--not outright saying Iowans are stupid.
