Sen. Ted Cruz put CNN’s Chris Cuomo on blast at CPAC Thursday.
“Nobody has ever been afraid of Chris Cuomo,” the Texas Republican claimed.
“I am not on Twitter right now, but I do wonder if in the five minutes since we’ve started, whether Chris Cuomo has tweeted whether you are afraid to come on his talk show,” host Ben Domenech said.
“You know, I’m quite certain, in the history of the universe, nobody has ever been afraid of Chris Cuomo,” Cruz responded.
Cruz exposed CNN last week after both Cuomo and Brian Stelter tweeted about Cruz. Stelter asked Cruz what he was “afraid of” for allegedly avoiding a CNN interview.
Cruz responded by saying that he already did an interview with CNN that was never aired.
“That’s funny, I spoke to CNN for 15 mins yesterday about proactive solutions to prevent gun violence (like passing the Grassley-Cruz bill—which Dems filibustered—that would add $300 million for school safety) yet CNN has aired NONE of it. Why not air the (entire) interview?” he tweeted. (RELATED: Ted Cruz Did A 15 Minute Interview With CNN – They Aired None Of It, Then Attacked Him For Not Coming On-Air)
