Governor Jerry Brown Blasts Ted Cruz As 'Unfit To Run For Office'

Governor Brown has strong views on Cruz' climate change views.

On Meet the Press this morning, Chuck Todd asked Jerry Brown about Ted Cruz' appearance on Seth Meyers' show Friday night where Cruz pointed to the cold weather on the East Coast as evidence that climate change is a myth.

The response to that was Jerry Brown at his political best.

Brown declared, "That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of the existing scientific data. It's shocking and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office."

Chuck Todd followed that up by saying that Jerry Brown just gave Ted Cruz his first campaign ad, but Chuck Todd is an idiot. There's a reason, after all, that Brown referred to Cruz as "that man."

I love our governor this time around more than I did the first, I wish he was going to run for President, but if not, at least he can be a powerful voice for actual facts instead of the pablum people like Ted Cruz dish out, pretending it's fact.
