Megyn Kelly Grills Rubio and Cruz Hard on Immigration Flip-Flops

cruz megyn rubioMegyn Kelly really brought it to both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz over their respective immigration flip-flops with brutal montages showing their past positions.

Kelly brought up a series of clips of Rubio saying he would never support blanket amnesty but then “within two years, you were co-sponsoring legislation to create a path to citizenship.” She asked, “Haven’t you already proven you cannot be trusted on this issue?”

Rubio got into a testy exchange with Kelly, who repeatedly called him out for supporting what he said he wouldn’t. Rubio insisted he has a plan to deal with immigration by enforcing current laws and has not flip-flopped on this issue.

Minutes later, Kelly turned to Cruz to confront him about a bill he pushed years ago that appeared to support legalization. She ran clips of Cruz making statements that seem to contradict his current claims that it was a “poison pill” to kill immigration reform.

Cruz continued to insist he introduced amendments to “fix problems with the bill” and said he did NOT support the rest of the bill.

Watch both exchanges above, via Fox News.
