Republican presidential frontrunner snubbed NBC News correspondent Hallie Jackson on Tuesday after she tried to get a straight answer about whether or not he could support Donald Trump if he’s the eventual GOP nominee.
Over the weekend, Cruz had repeatedly dodged Meet the Press host Chuck Todd’s attempts to confirm that he would stick to his earlier pledge to support the Republican nominee — no matter who came out on top in the primary.
When Jackson, who has been embedded with the Cruz campaign for months, tried to ask the same question on Tuesday, Cruz was less polite.
“These are some of the strongest words you’ve used against Donald Trump yet,” Jackson told the candidate at a press conference in Evansville, Indiana. “You know I’ve been with you, I’ve heard you talk about him. Today feels different for you.”
“So, I’m going to ask you a question and you’re going to say that I sound like a broken record,” she continued before being interrupted by Cruz.
“You sound like a broken record,” he quipped. “Someone else have a question?”
“But no,” Jackson pressed. “Why not say once and for all?”
“You’ve asked one already, Hallie,” Cruz said angrily. “You’ve asked already.”
“Will you support him as the nominee?” Jackson asked. “I don’t understand why you won’t answer the question, Senator. If you think he’s a liar… If you say he’s a pathological liar, and you say that you can’t…”
“Hallie, you’ve asked one already,” Cruz scolded.
“But why not definitely say,” the reporter tried once more.
Cruz, however, refused to acknowledge her and move on.

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.
Modi and Xi strolled along a pristine Bay of Bengal beach and held one-on-one talks overlooking the ocean before their delegations sat down to official negotiations at the historic resort town of Mahbalipuram, south of Chennai.
The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
