Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told Politico Thursday that Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) should “go back under a rock” after the GOP nominee hopeful said rival Donald Trump “embodies New York values.”
Cruz talked about Trump’s campaign rally songs Tuesday and said he thought the real estate mogul might start playing Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” because he “embodies New York values,” Cruz said. He didn’t elaborate on his meaning.
In response to Cruz’s remark, King told Politico that Cruz should “go back under a rock.’
“”Memo to Ted Cruz: New York Values are the heroes of 9/11; the cops who fight terror; and the people you ask for campaign donations. Go back under a rock,” King wrote in a statement, according to Politico.
Trump has also responded to Cruz’s comment and said it was “energy” that got NYC through the post-9/11 recovery.
Cruz said we can’t trust Trump because he’s from Jew York.
Peter King responded by saying, “Screw you! We’re not ALL terrible Jews!”
This is the Republican party.
