We all know those in the Leftist Media will spare NO opportunity to make Conservatives look bad, but when they LIE and then get proven as liars, it is indeed a thing of beauty. CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Brian Stelter both thought it would be a good idea to take on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on and claim he was a coward to not come on CNN and talk about the shooting at the Florida school. Well, they not only lied, but they took on the wrong person.
The day after Nikolas Cruz murdered 17 people in a mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, CNN host Chris Cuomo decided to accuse three top Republicans of being too afraid to appear on the network to discuss what happened. The three “cowards” he named where Florida. Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “None would come on this morning. They’re all on Fox, the mothership because they don’t want to be asked about this,” he stated.
Then not to be left out, CNN’s senior media correspondent, Brian Stelter, decided to jump in on the beatdown with a tweet:
However, the truth has a nasty way of coming out. Not allowing the lie to stand unchallenged, Sen. Cruz responded:
That's funny, I spoke to CNN for 15 mins yesterday about proactive solutions to prevent gun violence (like passing the Grassley-Cruz bill—which Dems filibustered—that would add $300 million for school safety) yet CNN has aired NONE of it. Why not air the (entire) interview? https://twitter.com/chriscuomo/status/964269092113911809 …
Here's a pic of the @CNN interview -- a 15-min exclusive given yesterday -- that y'all still haven't aired... (While falsely claiming I'm "afraid" to talk to CNN.) https://www.tedcruz.org/news/ted-cruz-houston-chronicle-democrats-put-politics-firearm-legislation/ … pic.twitter.com/sEtt4bTeUT
Ouch! Talk about a slap-down. Not to be one to let them off the hook so quickly, Cruz added:
Gosh, I seem to recall doing not 1, not 2, but THREE town hall debates w/ @BernieSanders on @CNN Each 90 min long. You can accuse me of many things, but being afraid of CNN is not one of them.... https://twitter.com/brianstelter/status/964142014655881216 …
There you have it, folks, CNN was caught in yet ANOTHER case of FAKE NEWS. However, this time they took on someone who not only had proof of their lie but was not afraid to call them out on it. Good job, Sen. Cruz, your response was a thing of beauty.
