Peter King: Ted Cruz Has Tapped Into a Dark Strain of the American Political Psyche
While certainly Rep. Peter King (R-Ny) is no prize as a congressman, some credit is in order for his continued aggressive stance towards Ted Cruz, a man he calls a fraud and a charlatan leading his supporters down the garden path with all this defunding nonsense. From Morning Joe.
Rep. Peter King, who has pulled no punches in criticizing Ted Cruz, said Thursday that supporters of the Texas senator have been bombarding his office with “vile” phone calls.
“I’m not saying Ted Cruz is responsible for all his supporters, but he has tapped into a dark strain here in the American political psyche here, and again, the most obscene, profane stuff you can imagine all from people who say they support the Constitution,” King said. “I think what we have to do is reach out to his people and let them know that they’re following a false leader here.”
