Cruz gets sharp with Hannity for pushing Trump talking points

Senator Ted Cruz’s radio interview with Sean Hannity got a bit testy this afternoon when Cruz decided he’d had enough of Sean’s nonsense. Hannity repeatedly pressed Cruz to explain how the delegate process worked, as if that hasn’t been excessively covered in every news outlet for the past month and a half. Every state determines how it will award its delegates, and Cruz’s team has excelled at electing Cruz supporters to those delegate positions, while Trump’s delegate hunting team has been a raging dumpster fire. (Maybe “Trump’s Delegate Hunting Team” isn’t the best choice of words, given the calls for doxxing and violence from the Trump camp and his supporters.)

I’ll come back later to elaborate on my thoughts, but for now, here’s the audio. You’ll want to give it a listen, it gets pretty spicy.
