During the Republican debate, Ted Cruz offended New Yorkers by describing them as having ‘New York Values.’ He insinuated that New Yorkers are slanted towards the left and have no ‘real values.’ Donald Trump shot back at him reminding everyone of the values seen on 911 and that Cruz’s comments were offensive. Trump is correct. The Daily News immediately took to the presses posting an image of the Statue of Liberty flipping the middle finger at Ted Cruz.
Many pundits are calling Cruz’s comments as an embarrassment and blunder. Governor Cuomo and others came out attacking Cruz for his comments. It seems that Ted Cruz is anti-New York or extremely ignorant. The majority of the state is Republican! Those liberals Ted Cruz is obsessed with are mostly found in New York City. Upstate, the majority of counties ARE Republican. In fact, Republican mayors have been elected in New York City showing that no such liberal faction controls the city in regards to voting.
Most likely, Cruz’s stupid comments will hurt him in April when New York is set to vote in the primaries. I applaud Donald Trump for defending New York. No disrespect to Texas, but Pope Saint John Paul II dubbed New York City as the capital of the world because of its importance. Texas is just a state with possibly the most obese people in the states and most uneducated. Many refuse to accept evolution. Texas cannot compare to my home state New York.
