CNN Crushes ‘Cancun’ Ted Cruz After He Callously Insults Their Reporter In Afghanistan

As if there isn’t already enough turmoil and tragedy in Afghanistan, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Cancun) has come along to contribute his typical tone deaf commentary on matters he is uniquely unqualified to discuss.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

Imagine Cruz’s dismay when his Twitter scrolling lead him to a tweet posted by the notorious conspiracy crackpot, Jack Posobiec, of PizzaGate fame. PizzaGate, you may recall, was the insane myth that a pedophile ring in Washington, D.C., was being run by Hillary Clinton and other Democrats out of the basement of a pizza parlor that didn’t actually have a basement.

Posobiec’s tweet that so enthralled Cruz featured a short and out of context video of CNN’s correspondent in Kabul, Afghanistan, Clarissa Ward, with the caption “CNN: ‘They’re chanting Death to America but they seem friendly at the same time. It’s bizarre.'”

For the record, Ward had been interviewing Taliban soldiers whose behavior was inconsistent with their verbal outbursts. While affirming their antipathy toward Americans, they were also posing for amiably pictures. She relayed that observation in her report, noting how peculiar it was.

Ignoring reality, Cruz was struck by what he obviously considered Posobiec’s brilliant insight which, for someone of Cruz’s pitifully limited intellect, it probably was. So he retweeted it with his response asking “Is there an enemy of America for whom @CNN WON’T cheerlead?” That’s an ironic remark considering Cruz has fully embraced the treasonous Donald Trump’s “Big Lie” about the “stolen” election, aligning him with such American enemies as Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping, who have joined Trump and Cruz in undermining faith in American democracy.

Cruz’s tweet did not go unnoticed by CNN’s communications office. They were understandably upset that Cruz was insulting a courageous journalist who is currently putting herself in a dangerous position by reporting from a war zone in a country now controlled by extremists who demonstrated their hatred for Americans, women, and reporters. Ward, of course, is all three. So CNN replied to Cruz in an especially appropriate manner. Here’s the entire exchange:

“Rather than running off to Cancun in tough times, @clarissaward is risking her life to tell the world what’s happening. That’s called bravery. Instead of RTing a conspiracy theorist’s misleading soundbite, perhaps your time would be better spent helping Americans in harm’s way.”

And thus ends Cancun Cruz’s hopes of ever restoring any sense of decency to which he might have aspired. Not that that wasn’t always a longshot proposition for him. But his brain-dead analyses of current events proves, once again, that he believes striving (unsuccessfully) for a sick burn takes priority over developing policies that actually benefit his constituents and the nation.
