RINO King ➠ Ted Cruz Supporters “Boorish Individuals”
Peter King looking from some extra media attention by faking outrage after people reacted angrily to his baseless smearing of Ted Cruz.
Via The Hill:
Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) on Friday said his staff have been abused by vulgar fans of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) who have made “adolescent” calls to his office.
King said “women and young interns” in his office have had to deal with unspeakable words from callers suffering “from severe cases of arrested development.”
“The puerile language used is what most kids outgrow and move beyond when they reach sophomore year in high school,” King told The Washington Post.
“The fact that women and young interns in my office have to listen to these perverse rantings is particularly shameful,” King said.
King acknowledged that Cruz “cannot be held responsible for all his supporters.”
Still, he said it was telling that boorish individuals were drawn to the Texas lawmaker.
“Clearly, Cruz has many decent and honorable supporters,” King argued. “At the same time, though, we must ask why he has such an unusual appeal to this low denominator in American politics.”
