Man-child Chris Cuomo is the poster boy for liberal “news” source CNN. Chris made yet another regrettable life choice by attacking Ted Cruz. Rather stupid, given the southern charm’s track record of reorganizing people’s faces (see Ted Cruz Calls Out Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman Schultz for Elitism and Ted Cruz Makes Bernie Challenge Official With This Epic Tax Bill).
Chris Cuomo and CNN were trying to say Ted Cruz refused to do an interview with CNN to defend gun rights in the “If you don’t support gun control, you’re a heartless daemon who hates children” narrative. Here’s the setup:

If Cruz thinks gun control improvement is not the answer, what is? Ask the question, Senator: what are we going to do to stop school shootings? Don’t just say what won’t work, work to find an answer! https://t.co/NAmAQOTudu

Ah, see. Cruz “won’t come on CNN to talk about this” ergo Ted Cruz is retreating to a safe space to tinkle himself.
Except here’s the truth:
That's funny, I spoke to CNN for 15 mins yesterday about proactive solutions to prevent gun violence (like passing the Grassley-Cruz bill—which Dems filibustered—that would add $300 million for school safety) yet CNN has aired NONE of it. Why not air the (entire) interview? https://t.co/c4GZcqTbs7

Busted. And once busted, time to run a little damage control:
Be clear: Cruz and others were invited to come on @NewDay and be tested about how to stop these shootings. They declined. If Cruz or others did an intv with Cnn thereafter fine, but they didn’t when we asked. Period. Offer stands. Anytime. Anywhere. https://t.co/Wxy1KsutIo

Be clear: @NewDay got upset when they found Cruz was already booked on @foxandfriends and invited him to come on a mere 50mins before New Day ended…. THEN decided to launch false accusations of being “afraid” in last minutes of the show https://t.co/PaUaMh42p4

Gosh, I seem to recall doing not 1, not 2, but THREE town hall debates w/ @BernieSanders on @CNN Each 90 min long. You can accuse me of many things, but being afraid of CNN is not one of them…. https://t.co/we6HBY0oQ9

Ted Cruz fears CNN like Nancy Pelosi fears a botox needle. Not to be confused with a USB port used to install upgrades. Ted Cruz is happy to have personal discussions, to talk issues, and engage in debate. So for CNN to suggest Cruz is biting his nails over Chris Cuomo is just pure wishful projection. CNN, after all, is the company comparing itself to a banana instead of an apple. Or perhaps the reverse of that. Regardless, they openly compare themselves to the contents of a fruit basket. Then have the gall to accuse Ted Cruz of running from a fight.
Let that sink in.
