Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) took a few jabs at the press during a Monday appearance on Fox News for its handling of coronavirus coverage.

According to the Texas Republican U.S. Senator, the mainstream media were rooting for “disaster,” given they believe it would be a mark against President Donald Trump.

Cruz cited an example of a tweet from The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler, who he challenged days earlier for questioning Trump’s remarks about unemployment at the State of the Union address last month.

“[Y]ou see the media — much of the mainstream media was trying to root for disaster,” Cruz said. “They’re rooting for this pandemic to be worse and worse. And you saw The Washington Post self-proclaimed fact-checker was cheering about a line from the State of the Union where the President said we had the lowest unemployment in 50 years. And The Washington Post was saying, ‘Well, that didn’t stand up well to the test of time.’”

“Well, no, you moron,” he continued. “We had the lowest level of African-American and Hispanic unemployment ever recorded until a global pandemic that originated in Wuhan came and ended up causing absolute chaos and catastrophe. But yet, the media — we should be coming together to root for America, to root for defeating this pandemic, to root for jobs coming back. 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.”

  1. Hell the MSM and the Socialist party are rooting for the Chinese virus so they can keep packing any bill with their shit hole wet dreams and Pelosi can remain the QUEEN OF FLIES.

  2. I am angry with the news media for using fake news and listening to the demoncrats regarding this epidemic. They could not get rid of Trump with impeachment, now they are trying this Wuhan virus. I hope this all comes back to bite them.

  3. Senator Cruz is absolutely correct. Look at the democrat governors and democrat controlled states. they want to keep every one at home and send them checks to make them depend on the democrat and their ideas. Our president had our nation on a fast moving train until china and the democrats got in the way. We will be back and we will be stronger.
