This article isn’t meant to support Cruz or Trump. It’s meant to present a perspective but viewers can listen to the videos and decide for themselves. Both were interviewed on Mediabuzz Sunday. In the end, the media is having a grand time watching Republicans destroy themselves from within.
These two interviews – with Cruz and then Trump – are two of the best on the most recent issues in the battle between them.
One of the reasons supporters like Ted Cruz is because he went to DC to do what his constituents wanted him to do. He did exactly what he said he would do. The backlash when he called the liar Mitch McConnell out as a liar should tell people something about the unspoken rule in Congress – you don’t call a colleague a liar in public even if he is.
The public mustn’t know.
It has cost him dearly and it is being used. It’s made him vulnerable to attacks by Donald Trump. When Cruz employed an interview with Trump by the late Tim Russert to describe Trump’s views and values, it created a backlash against him for stereotyping New Yorkers.
In the video, Cruz explains once again that he was echoing Trump’s own words from the interview. New York’s leaders are Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio. One is very far left and the other is a communist. They were overwhelming elected by the constituents. One might argue that they don’t represent all New Yorkers, but they do represent most.
Using 9/11 as a straw man, while brilliant, was unfair but it worked and no one is blaming Trump.
Senator Ted Cruz addressed the New York Times hit piece, the media, the New York values statement, and why he’s unpopular in the Senate.
In this brief clip from the 1999 interview, Donald Trump tells Tim Russert about his New York values.
Donald Trump addresses Cruz in this next video and people can decide what they think after listening to all of the comments. He’s masterful. He doesn’t say it in this video, but he did say yesterday that he would vote for Cruz were he the nominee.
