WOW! What a Blowout!
Sean Hannity had Senator Ted Cruz on his radio show today to discuss the GOP race. Sean asked him about the delegate process and specifically about his team taking delegates from other candidates. Ted Cruz would not answer the question and told Sean, “That is not what people are worried about.” Cruz said this was only an issue because of Donald Trump’s complaints.
That’s when Sean blew up!
Sean Hannity: “Senator, I’m on social media with millions of people. I have 550 radio stations and I have the top-rated cable show in my hour all across the board. And I am telling you that people are telling me that they are finding this whole process confusing…
Ted Cruz: Sean the only people asking this question are the hard-core Donald Trump supporters.
Hannity: Senator, why do you do this every single time… No, you gotta stop. Every time I have you on the air, and I ask a legitimate question, you try to throw this in my face. I’m getting sick of it. I’ve had you on more than any other candidate on radio and TV. So if I ask you, senator, a legitimate question to explain to the audience, why don’t you just answer it?
Here’s the audio via the Ted Cruz Campaign:
Ted Cruz proceeded to repeat his dishonest quote about winning the last five “elections.”
Business Insider reported:
Conservative radio host Sean Hannity and Sen. Ted Cruz had a testy back and forth on the host’s Tuesday show, with Hannity telling the Texas senator at one point that he was “getting sick of” Cruz dodging “legitimate questions.”…
…Hannity came back at Cruz, telling him that he hears from people who tell him that they “find this whole process confusing.”
Hannity pointed out that the Cruz campaign has focused on wooing delegates who might be able to switch their vote from Trump to Cruz on a second convention ballot.
“It’s more than a process question,” Hannity said. “It’s an integrity-of-the-election question.”
Cruz responded that the “only people asking this question are the hardcore Donald Trump supporters.”
Hannity told him he had to “stop.”
“Senator, why do you do this every single time,” Hannity said, cutting Cruz off as he was speaking. “You’ve got to stop. Every time I have you on the air, and I ask a legitimate question, you try to throw this in my face. I’m getting sick of it. I’ve had you on more than any other candidate on radio and TV. So if I ask you, senator, a legitimate question to explain to the audience, why don’t you just answer it?”
Cruz asked if he could answer Hannity’s question “without being interrupted.”
“Go ahead,” Hannity responded.
Cruz explained his view on the delegate process at length:
All of this noise and complaining and whining has come from the Trump campaign because they don’t like that they lose five elections in a row. That Republicans are uniting behind our campaign. So they’re screaming on Drudge and it’s getting echoed, this notion of voter-less elections. It is nonsense. They are making it up. Over 1.3 million people voted. We won landslides in all five.
Now there is a second component beyond the elections, which is the individual delegates are elected by the people. Donald Trump’s campaign does not know how to organize on the grassroots. And so when the delegates are elected, conservative activists, real conservative activists show up, and we are winning those elections over and over and over again. The Donald Trump campaign doesn’t know what they’re doing. They don’t show up.
