Ted Cruz Reacts to Donald Trump Unrest: Protesters ‘Have Crossed the Line’
In a fitting visual metaphor for the 2016 presidential campaign, current Republican runner-up Ted Cruz spoke to reporters Friday afternoon from a little postage stamp in the corner of a live shot featuring the empty venue where frontrunner Donald Trump would shortly arrive. Cruz was asked for his reaction to the protests that greeted Trump Thursday night, and which would soon force Trump to abandon his motorcade Donald Trump this afternoon, and Cruz showed something approaching solidarity by noting that the protesters had “crossed the line” and were “leftist agitators” who were “trying to silence a voice they don’t like.”
True to form, though, Cruz couldn’t resist a shot at Trump, noting that his own responses to protesters don’t involve “inciting violence.” In a particularly surreal touch, today’s protesters could be heard in the Trump venue as Cruz finished his response. Watch the video above.
