If you don't stop asking questions, I won't let you interview me.
In another entry in the 2016 annals of "If Trump's doing it, me too," Ted Cruz went after Fox News host Megyn Kelly after she dared to ask him a question on whether he would deport citizen children born in the U.S. to undocumented immigrants. Nick Gass reports
When Kelly pressed the Texas senator on what he would do as president, Cruz said that he’s “not playing the game” and declined to answer the question.
“What would President Cruz do? Do American citizen children of two illegal immigrants, who are born here, the children, get deported under a President Cruz?” Kelly asked.
Donald Trump, she said, “has answered that question explicitly.”
“Megyn, I get that that’s the question you want to ask,” Cruz said. “That’s also the question every mainstream media liberal journalist wants to ask.”
Asked whether it is an unfair question, Cruz said that it is “a distraction” from solving the issue.
“You know, it’s also the question that Barack Obama wants to focus on,” Cruz retorted.
Ouch. Mainstream media liberal journalist? A tool of Barack Obama? Next thing you know, Kelly will be working at Daily Kos.
Cruz, a well-known seeker of real solutions, went on to say that he wouldn't give Kelly a simple "yes" or "no" because he needed to focus on "bipartisan agreement first."
Apparently, "bipartisan agreement" really means just shoving your own agenda down the throats of everyone else in service of your own presidential ambitions.
