Family has to stick together. CNN correspondent Chris Cuomo had Senator Ted Cruz on and the two discussed the Presidential Debate. When Cuomo asked Cruz about President Donald Trump’s comments in not condemning white supremacists, Ted Cruz refused to comment. Things got even more heated when Senator Ted Cruz insulted Chris’ brother, Andrew Cuomo and his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Senator Cruz asked Chris, “Does it trouble you at all that New York and New Jersey had the highest death rates in the country?”

The two try yelling over each other as Chris tries to defend his brother, “It all troubles me Ted, And to watch guys like you stand by and stroke your beard like a wise man instead of telling the president to get on it when you have power is a problem.”

Cruz tries to shy away from actually sending any criticism Trump’s way, asking Chris, “How about tell your brother to get on it?”

Chris replies as Ted tries to get the last word in and speaking over Chris, “My brother will stand for his own record. Why don’t you talk to the president the way you talk to my brother, Ted? You afraid of him? You think he’ll smack you down at home? Is that what it is? Like he shut you up in the primary?”

He goes on to remind Ted about the time Donald Trump called Senator Cruz’s wife ugly during the 2016 GOP primary. Chris continued to rip into Ted Cruz, “My brother’s not the president. I’m talking about the president. The one who called you a liar. The one who said your wife was ugly — that guy! The guy now who you won’t say anything about!”

Again, Cruz stumbles over his words and tries to catch up to Cuomo in conversation and manages to get out, “When the death rates are markedly worse in some states than others, we should ask a reasonable question.”

Chris was able to get the last word shooting right back, “Yeah. Why didn’t the president help sooner? That’s the question.”
