Cruz Scorches Newspaper

Two journalists recently started a Twitter war with Senator Ted Cruz. He finished them.
Since Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Senator Cruz has repeatedly condemned white supremacist groups and criticized the left for lumping conservatives in with hate groups. He immediately called the deadly attack on counter-protesters an act of terrorism and requested the Justice Department launch an investigation.
Unsurprisingly, most of the liberal media questioned his intentions. The New York Times’ Eric Lipton and Salon’s Simon Maloy went further declaring Cruz's outreach as a ruse to win over voters.
Cruz smacked down Lipton, stating that the KKK and Nazis have no love for Cuban Americans and revealing that The New York Times once shilled for Soviet Dictator Joseph Stalin.
Lipton complained that Cruz only wanted to slander the paper. Cruz responded with information about The New York Times' 1930s Moscow Bureau Chief, Walter Duranty.
Duranty repeatedly denied the occurrence of Stalin's man-made famine of 1932-33. Stalin’s decisions to reject foreign aid, confiscate foodstuffs, and restrict movement led to the deaths of 7 to 10 million people.
Humiliated, Lipton deleted his tweets.
Not to be outdone, Simon Maloy compared the hate-filled chants at the Unite the Right rally to a speech by Cruz calling then-President Barack Obama one of the world’s premier financiers of terrorism because of the Iran nuclear deal.
Cruz got the last laugh, explaining that Iran leads the world in sponsoring terrorism and that Obama gave the regime $1.7 billion to get a short sighted deal signed for the sake of his legacy.
Of course, these victories came at a price. Cruz's wife, Heidi, made it clear she does not approve of him tweeting at dinner.
