WATCH LIVE: TRUMP OHIO RALLIES

Was there anything that Texas Senator Ted Cruz didn’t aggressively address in his bizarre press conference Wednesday afternoon?

The pressure is on to be sure. In South Carolina, voters will make their way to the polls in just three days for the state-wide Primary, and Cruz is hoping to repeat his success in Iowa by finishing on top. But in his way are a swirling list of controversies that have dogged his campaign appearances, and the Texas Senator used the opportunity on Wednesday to try and swat away as many of them as possible.

Just as CNN covered the Cruz press conference live, political media had a field day on Twitter, frequently bashing the presser’s rambling:

CNN’s Dylan Byers took particular offense to the Texas Senator’s assertions that it was the network’s reporting the night of the Iowa Caucus that caused the Cruz campaign to target supporters of Ben Carson, who the campaign said was dropping out of the race. CNN has passionately defended it’s reporting the night of the Caucus:

Ted Cruz was “taking it to a new level” said CNN’s Jim Sciutto of the press conference, which you can watch above.
