Ted Cruz on Fox: Liberal Media Tries to Trap GOP Candidates with ‘Sex’ Questions

cruzLast month, Ted Cruz snapped back at reporters who asked him about gay marriage. At one point, Cruz just scolded the reporter for asking him about his position on gay people and marriage equality when ISIS continues to exist and slaughter people.

At the time, he said the liberal media’s “obsessed with sex,” and he reiterated the same point in talking with Fox’s Howard Kurtz today.

Cruz said the reason he refused to answer is because he wanted to deny the headlines. He told Kurtz there’s a “trap” in politics that when Republicans get asked questions––especially about those aforementioned “sex” issues––the focus of the media reaction is “attack headlines.”

He clarified that of course he doesn’t have animosity towards gay people, he just didn’t want the media trying to distort his views.
