Sen. Ted Cruz showed how to control unruly protesters and look presidential in the process by putting his superior logic and intellect to good use.
At a campaign stop in the western Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, the Texas Republican, who’s seeking his party’s nomination for president, was enthusiastically met by a large number of supporters — save for one animal rights activist.
Huffington Post contributor Samantha-Jo Roth posted a video of the exchange.

Texas Tribune reporter Patrick Svitek, who’s covering the Cruz presidential campaign, reported:
Cruz to protesters: “I understand you’re very concerned about animals. Animals are wonderful. I also happen to care about human beings.”
