Ted Cruz Makes A Fool Out Of Himself During Interview with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly (Video)

megyn-kelly-ted-cruz-immigrationDuring his short time in the Senate, Ted Cruz has proven himself to be an absolute joke. It baffles me that there are millions of people in this country who actually take this clown seriously. Not only is he one of the most ridiculous politicians we have in this country, but almost nothing he says is actually true.

It really shouldn’t come as a shock that when Cruz went on The Kelly File last night on Fox News, he made an absolute fool out of himself. It started with Megyn Kelly asking him if he would deport American citizens born to illegal immigrants, like Donald Trump said he would do.

“Do American citizen children of two illegal immigrants get deported under a President Cruz?,” Kelly asked.

After saying he didn’t want to “play her game” – because apparently asking a serious policy question that has major implications on the lives of millions of Americans (as well as our Constitution) is unreasonable to Cruz – he finally tried to blame her question on the “liberal” mainstream media.

No, seriously…

“I get that’s the question you want to ask,” Cruz responded. “That’s also the question every mainstream media liberal journalist wants to ask.”

I would think any credible journalist would want to ask a presidential candidate whether or not they would support deporting millions of American citizens. I have no idea how any sane person could see Kelly’s question as some sort of “gotcha liberal media” ploy against Republicans. The GOP is the party that has several of its candidates coming out against birthright citizenship, so all she was doing was asking Cruz to clarify his stance on an issue that’s been at the forefront of his party for the last few weeks.

So, being that Cruz apparently felt she was playing some sort of “game,” Kelly flat-out asked him if he thought it was an unfair question, pressing him on the fact that he seemed to be purposely avoiding giving her a simple yes or no answer.

His response was exactly what you would expect from Cruz – just a list of talking points that had nothing to do with whether or not he, like Trump, would call for the deportation of millions of American citizens who were born to illegal immigrants.

Cruz once again came off looking ill-prepared and like someone who has no business running for president. While I’m sure his supporters would disagree, I think most rational people would agree that he absolutely embarrassed himself during this interview. Even Kelly chuckled a couple of times listening to Cruz try to dance around and make excuses for why he wouldn’t answer her very simple line of questioning.

I really think we need to make a rule that says if you’re a Republican who can’t even handle an interview on Fox News, you should be banned from running for public office.
