Describing the media as the Democrat Party’s cheerleaders, Senator Ted Cruz tore into the moderators for Wednesday’s CNBC Republican presidential debate in a post-debate interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.
“The moderators and the networks don’t want anyone to vote for any of the men or women on stage,” Cruz told Hannity.
Hannity agreed, calling Cruz’s criticism of the moderators during the debate the best line of the night.
“In many instances tonight, [the moderators were] a disgrace to the ‘profession’ of journalism,” Hannity argued.
“Why is it, we keep having debates where the moderators – no one in their right mind thinks the moderators will actually vote in a Republican primary?” Cruz asked rhetorically, repeating the criticism he made during the debate.
“Republican primary debates ought to be moderated by people who would actually vote in a primary. How about a debate moderated by Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh?”
Cruz probably shouldn’t hold his breath for such a “dream team” of moderators, but his point was well received by Hannity, who seemed entertained by the idea.
In the end, the reason for the moderator’s biased questions and petty attacks was pretty obvious, even to Cruz.
“They want people to either stay home, or vote for Hillary,” he argued.
