Texas Senator Ted Cruz had a social media *mic drop* moment when he slammed CNBC debate moderators and the media in general as partisans more interested in starting a fight than discussing substantive issues.

“The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz said. “This is not a cage match.” From there, he listed the questions candidate were asked and said, “How about talking about the substantive issues people care about?”

The crowd erupted in applause.

“The contrast with the Democrat debate,” Cruz continued, “where every fawning question from the media was which of you is more handsome and wise…”

“Let me be clear, the men and women on this stage have more ideas, more experience, more common sense than every participant in the Democratic debate,” Cruz said. “That debate was between the Bolsheviks and Mensheviks.”

“And nobody watching at home believes that any of the moderators have any intention of voting in a Republican primary,” Cruz concluded.


As Senator Cruz finished his answer social media exploded.
