Ted Cruz Gets Torched After Claiming That The Media Is ‘Rooting For Disaster’ Just To Hurt Trump

Republicans are pushing the idea that the media is happy that we’re in the middle of a pandemic because they can blame Donald Trump for it. That was what Texas Republican Ted Cruz claimed on Monday while appearing on “The Ingraham Angle.”

Cruz told host Laura Ingraham, “You see, much of the mainstream media trying to root for disaster. They are rooting for this pandemic to be worse and worse.”

Cruz not only attacked the media on Ingraham’s show, but also, the Democratic Party — implying that Democrats are enjoying the pandemic because it gives them an excuse to “attack Trump.”

“We should be coming together to root for America, to root for defeating the pandemic, and root for jobs coming back,” Cruz told Ingraham. “And I think too many partisan Democrats want to just use this catastrophe to attack Trump rather than come together and fight for our country.”

Cruz had a similar claim earlier this month when he claimed “too many in the press are giddy with glee” over the pandemic.

Cruz got called out on Twitter over his claims. Here are some of the best responses:
