Cruz, Hannity Spar Over Delegates: ‘The Only People Asking This Question Are the Hardcore Donald Trump Supporters’ – Breitbart
GOP presidential candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and talk radio and Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity engaged in a testy exchange over the delegate process on Hannity’s radio show on Tuesday.
Hannity began the interview by asking, “I think the number one question on the minds of Republicans right now is what is going on with the delegates. For example, if you can explain to people that your campaign, that you have every right, within the rules, to talk to candidates, that are pledged on a first ballot, to candidate A or candidate C, you being candidate B. And that — tell us what that process is.”
Cruz answered that isn’t what people are concerned about, and are instead concerned about policy issues and beating Democratic candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Cruz further stated that “the media loves to obsess about process. This process, and this whining from the Trump campaign is all silly. It’s very, very simple –.”
Hannity then cut in to say, “I’m on social media, with millions of people. I have 550 radio stations. And I have the top-rated cable in my hour, all across the board. And I am telling you, that people are telling me, that they find this whole process confusing.” He further stated that this wasn’t a “process question. It’s an integrity of the election question. And everybody’s asking me this question. So, I want — I’m giving you an opportunity to explain it.”
Cruz responded, “Sean, the only people asking this question, are the hardcore Donald Trump supporters.” Hannity again cut in to ask, “Senator, why do you this? Every single time you…you’ve got to stop. Every time I have you on the air, and I ask a legitimate question, you try to throw this in my face. I’m getting sick of it. I’ve had you on more than any other candidate, on radio and TV. So, if I ask you, Senator, a legitimate question to explain to the audience, why don’t you just answer it?”
Canadian Teddy won’t answer it because if more people knew what he was doing, they’d burn the RNC down. They still might.
Teddy is playing the saddest role of them all. He’s the kid that the cool kids bully the shit out of but at some point in our story, he becomes useful to the bullies. So the bullies use him to play a mean old prank on the class president. And the saddest part is that the whole time, that bullied little kid thinks the bullies will reward him when it’s all over.
Teddy really believes that if he can steal enough delegates and give the RNC enough cover to declare a contested convention, they’re going to reward him with the nomination. But they hate you, Teddy and if they ever respected you, they sure as fuck don’t now.
But Teddy will keep playing his surprisingly large part in destroying what’s left of the Republic while continuing the proud tradition of men who are not eligible to be President doing enormous damage to that very office.
