Cruz: Let ‘real journalists’ Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh host GOP debates instead of ‘left wing operatives’

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) put a layer of paranoia on top of the GOP’s outrage over being asked questions they didn’t like during Wednesday night’s primary debate on CNBC.

The GOP candidate for president called CNBC moderators “left wing operatives” during a campaign event in Iowa on Saturday, The Hill reports. Cruz added that future moderators should have the prerequisite of voting in Republican primaries.

“What you wouldn’t have is a bunch of left-wing operatives whose object is that whoever the Republican nominee is, they want him as battered and bruised as possible so the Democrat wins in November,” Cruz told the audience. “Instead you’d have moderators that were trying to help conservatives make a decision who’s going to be the best and strongest conservative to represent us and win, who is the proven conservative, the consistent conservative.”

He went on to say better choices for GOP debate moderators include conservative hosts Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, saying those three are his idea of “real journalists.”

“You know, how about we stop letting left-wing liberals moderate Republican debates?” he said. “How about instead of a bunch of attack journalists, we actually have real journalists?”

Cruz had lashed out at moderators during the event, accusing them of asking “gotcha” questions. On Friday, Republican National Convention chair Reince Priebus sent a letter to NBC informing the broadcasting company that February debates were off because the RNC was unhappy with the questions posed Wednesday.

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin joked this week about selling defense systems to Riyadh following weekend attacks on Saudi oil facilities. The gag was aimed at US President Donald Trump and it hit the mark with the precision of a guided weapon.

It was a masterful piece of trolling by the czar of trolls – a snide, disparaging jibe with an element of truth twisted into absurdity for maximum effect and laughs. At a joint press conference with his Turkish and Iranian counterparts in Ankara on Monday, Putin cast his bait into the volatile Persian Gulf region just days after devastating attacks on Saudi oil facilities exposed the limits of the Gulf kingdom’s expensive defense systems.

Published

on

Anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick Wilson dropped the hammer on House Democrats Tuesday for letting Trump minion Corey Lewandowski make a mockery of their oversight powers.

After witnessing a House Judiciary Committee hearing that quickly devolved into a circus with Lewandowski stonewalling and evading questions, Wilson unloaded on Democrats for failing in their basic responsibilities in governmental oversight.

"This is outrageous contempt," Wilson wrote. "It isn't just that this scumbag Lewandowski is slapping the committee with it. This is a test, and the Democrats are going to fail it. They're so bad at this it makes me cringe."
