This is one of the all time smack downs. I literally said “ohhhhh ***t” out loud when I read it. A reporter for the New York Times was an ass on Twitter (surprise!!) on Sunday. Here’s his tweet.
Sorry to be cynical, but most of all Rubio and Ted Cruz to me seem mostly to be doing a tremendous job of posturing for 2020.

This partisan sneer is exactly as crass and ill-timed as the thing he's baselessly accusing them of doing. https://t.co/aKDt0U87nC

There were some good responses, which you can read at Twitchy, but nothing came close to this devastating, crippling blow from Senator Cruz himself.
Gosh, you're right. Because Nazis & the Klan have such love for Cuban-Americans. If only we worked for a paper that shilled for Stalin…. https://t.co/PBsFqauXq2

Cruz is pretty great at Twitter. He should give classes to other Republicans. I can think of one in particular.
