Keith Olbermann Names Ted Cruz ‘Worst Person in the Sports World’

ESPN2 anchor Keith Olbermann named Republican Sen. Ted Cruz his “Worst Person in the Sports World” this week, in response to the GOP presidential candidate’s joke about the NFL’s “Deflategate” being caused by Hillary Clinton.

While speaking in Massachusetts this past weekend, Cruz told the crowd: “Tom Brady was framed and I have it on good authority that Hillary Clinton did it….Why do you think she deleted her emails?”

Before giving Cruz the infamous title, Olbermann clarified that this is “purely ecumenical” and that he would have happily awarded the “Worst” title to Clinton when she claimed to be a “life-long Yankee fan” during her 2000 U.S. Senate campaign (despite previously claiming Cubs fandom).

“This is about all politicians all at once,” he said, before rolling the tape of Cruz’s “Deflategate” joke.

He concluded: “Senator Ted ‘Brady-Was-Framed’ Cruz. Hey, senator: Ball-ghazi! That’s 18 years of Senate hearings you can waste money on.”
