A reporter in Beaumont, Texas got his comeuppance Tuesday after badgering presidential hopeful Ted Cruz with incessant questions about gay rights.
“Is there something about the left – and I am going to put the media in this category – that is obsessed with sex?” Cruz asked.
Cruz was meeting with local leaders, according to the Texas Tribune, promising to defend the Constitution, step back from President Obama’s foreign policy, and promote economic growth, when things got ugly – for the reporter.
After several monotonous questions about gay rights, Cruz turned the tables on the reporter and, like a master, rolled foreign policy into an answer about homosexuality.
“ISIS is executing homosexuals – you want to talk about gay rights?” Cruz challenged.
“This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals – ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.”
The reporter went right back to his original question about Cruz having “animosity toward gay Americans.”
“Do you have a personal animosity against Christians sir?” Cruz asked him.
“Your line of questioning is highly curious. You seem fixated on a particular subject.”
Cruz emphasized his Christian beliefs and offered the seemingly stunned reporter some good advice.
“With respect, I would suggest not drawing your questions from MSNBC – they have very few viewers and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet,” Cruz said.
