If you missed the ridiculous questions lobbed at Ted Cruz, there’s a primer here. Questions from liberal bigot Mark Halperin to Cruz centered around what kind of Cuban food and music he likes, without for a second realizing how ridiculous he looked. Needless to say his career would be over if you reversed roles and had a conservative asking what essentially are Ricky Ricardo questions of a Democrat of Cuban descent.
Apparently the heat’s gotten to him so he offers up this weak-sauce non-apology apology.
We wanted to talk with Senator Cruz about his outreach to Latino voters the day after he spoke at theHispanic Chamber of Commerce. My intent was to give the Senator a chance to speak further about this heritage and personal connections to the community through some casual questions. ! rushedthrough the questions” and that was a mistake # it led to poor tone and timing. ! also understand why some felt the questions were inappropriate. $s for asking Senator Cruz to welcome Senator Sandersto the race in Spanish” that was meant to be the type of light-hearted banter that he&s done with us before on the show. !n no way was ! asking Senator Cruz to ‘prove( he was an ‘authentic( Latino. !apologize to those that were offended” and to Senator Cruz. ! promise that ! will work to make the tone and questions better next time.
