Cruz points at Obama for deputy’s murder, shrugs off “jackass” label from Speaker John Boehner
MILFORD, N.H. – Sen. Ted Cruz today blamed President Obama for the ambush murder of a sheriff’s deputy in Houston, asserting that the president’s vilification of police has created a dangerous climate.
“Cops across this country are feeling the assault,” Cruz told reporters after a town hall meeting in Milford, N.H. “They’re feeling the assault from the president, from the top on down, as we see — whether it’s in Ferguson or Baltimore, the response from senior officials, the president or the attorney general, is to vilify law enforcement. That’s wrong. It’s fundamentally wrong. It’s endangering all of our safety and security.”
