Lewis Black: Ted Cruz is so creepy and weird that no one notices he’s a bully — just like Trump

Published

Lewis Black said the most surprising news out of Iowa was that Ben Carson, who briefly challenged Donald Trump for Republican frontrunner status, announced he was flying home to Florida for a change of clothes.

Black, who took part Tuesday in a panel discussion on “The Nightly Show,” said he can’t believe some voters went for Carson despite his latest bizarre pronouncement.

“That kind of leads into the other thing, that someone that really batsh*t crazy scores, like, 10 percent in Iowa,” Black said. “I mean, seriously.”

Black agreed with host Larry Wilmore and two other panelists, Rory Albanese and Franchesca Ramsey, that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) likely posed the most serious challenge to Hillary Clinton.

But Black said he had serious concerns about Rubio’s qualifications for the presidency.

“The other thing with him, we’re going to watch on-the-job training, and I just can’t do this again,” he said. “I mean, Barack Obama, part of the problem was on-the-job training.”

Wilmore suggested that racist opposition to Obama played a bigger role in limiting his accomplishments, and Black agreed to a point.

“It was absolutely that, but also it was dealing with — it’s the same position of a guy who’s in the Senate who hasn’t been in the Senate long enough,” Black said.

Wilmore pointed out that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who won the GOP caucuses in Iowa, has a similar background — and Black feigned a heart attack.

“Here’s what Rubio’s problem is right now — both Trump and Cruz are both bullies,” Black said. “So I think that they’re going to kind of punch him. What I really find interesting about Cruz, after everything else, is that people don’t seem to have noticed that he is a bully. Trump is an obvious bully. Cruz is the bully who acts weird, and he’s acting weird all the time, and so you end up doing what the weird guy wants you to do so he’ll stop acting weird.”

Black suggested there may be a bizarre biological reason for Cruz’s creepiness.

“I believe there’s a touch, and I know this will offend you, there’s a touch of ferret in his family,” he said.

Critics slam Alan Dershowitz after he fights to defend his own questionable reputation

Published

on

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
