Ted Cruz Is Hated And Despised
While ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ worked for many Republicans in Wisconsin as they worked to trounce Donald Trump by supporting Ted Cruz, that is not the case in New York. Unless Cruz is being used to stop Trump there is no use for him in the GOP.
Rep. Peter King of New York said in a radio interview on Thursday that New Yorkers should not vote for Ted Cruz in the state’s upcoming primary.
“Let me say something about the New York primary: Any New Yorker who even thinks of voting for Ted Cruz should have their head examined,” King said on the Joe Piscopo Show on AM 970 The Answer. “Really, here’s a guy who refused to sign onto the 9/11 health care act for the cops and fireman. Here’s a guy who talks about New York values.”
“New York keeps going forward,” King continued, citing the city’s response to 9/11. “We’re tough, and to have some guy like Ted Cruz with cowboy boots walk around criticizing us. Look, I hope he gets the cold shoulder and other things from every New Yorker. Send him back where he belongs. He’s a phony, and that was all off the record by the way. I don’t want anyone listening. That was all off the record.”
“I just can’t stand that guy,” he added
