CNN interrupts Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's speech announcing the deal to end the government shutdown and avoid default ... in order to get reaction from the true GOP leader, House Speaker Ted "Calgary" Cruz:
This is hilarious not only because CNN cut from McConnell, but also because if you listen carefully, you can hear someone (I think it's CNN reporter Dana Bash) ask Cruz if he wants to wait for McConnell to finish his remarks before he begins speaking. Cruz, of course, says no—but nonetheless waits for a few more seconds to begin, not because McConnell is speaking but because:
Alright, hold on, let me wait until everyone is situated.
And there you have Ted Cruz's priorities in a nutshell: As long as the camera's are focused on him, he's good to go.
