Ted Cruz BTFO'd MSNBC's Joe Scarborough with a Single Tweet
On Friday, while you were hopefully out enjoying your state's relaxing of COVID-19 shutdown regulations, there was drama on the Twitters. It started when Jimmy Kimmel used a grossly deceptively edited video to attack Vice President Mike Pence. The media of course ran with it without doing any reporting of their own, because the one journalistic standard they all have is, "I saw this thing on Twitter. Whoa if true." Once it was clear the video was bullcookies, the media let out a collective "whoopsie."
Ted Cruz wasn't having it and wound up going back and forth with the Trump-obsessed Joe Scarborough (in between getting his hair did). There was this one Cruz tweet, however, that needs to be printed out and hung in a museum. Sorry, Axl Rose. Morning Joe just won the week for being on the wrong end of the most savage tweetdown ever.
'Member in 2015/2016 when Joe Scarborough basically made Donald Trump a cohost of his show on MSNBC? Ted Cruz 'members. Cruz probably also 'members how the day after he won the Wisconsin primary, Scarborough led the pro-Trump attack against Cruz's campaign.
See, there are many people in the media who are responsible for Trump. Everyone played their part in the close to $2 billion in earned media for his campaign. But no one can spend the rest of their days stepping on more Lego blocks over it than Scarborough. To paraphrase on of the greatest philosophers of this generation, you can hate Trump now, but he won't stop now.
