Best debate moment! Ted Cruz smacks down entire panel of smug, incompetent, liberal moderators

Powered by Topple

Sen. Ted Cruz was the first candidate in Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate to really unload on the CNBC moderators and say what everyone else was thinking.

Cruz exploded into a measured rant, burning the panel of smug, liberal-leaning questioners, and rightfully so.

“The questions asked in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” the Texas firebrand said. “This is not a cage match.”

The audience roared with applause after Cruz rattled off a summary of the ridiculous and insulting questions they had been asked since taking the stage.

“How about talking about the substantive issues?” Cruz asked.

He ignored CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla’s reminders to answer the question, and instead slammed the media for fawning over the “Bolsheviks and the Mensheviks” of the Democratic debate, earning more cheers.

“The questions being asked shouldn’t be trying to get people to tear into each other,” Cruz said.

From there, Cruz tried to answer the question, but a humiliated Quintanilla declared that his time had expired, and moved on.
