Ted Cruz, Joe Scarborough Trade Insults In Nasty Twitter Feud Involving Cruz’s “Ugly” Wife, “Panties”


Ted Cruz, Joe Scarborough Trade Insults In Nasty Twitter Feud Involving Cruz’s “Ugly” Wife, “Panties”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough exchanged insults in a heated Twitter fight after Scarborough shared a selectively-edited video of Vice President Mike Pence that made it appear as though he was delivering empty boxes of personal protective equipment (PPE) to a nursing home.

In a viral clip, Pence is caught on what appears to be a hot mic joking about carrying empty boxes into a Virginia nursing home “just for the cameras.” The partial clip was shared by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, who later apologized once it was made clear that Pence had been joking and the full video showed Pence carrying full boxes into the nursing home, without a mask.

Scarborough had shared the Kimmel’s tweet with the video and later tweeted a message to his followers explaining why he deleted the clip.

“I guess Twitter is a full time job. I apologize to Mike Pence for retweeting a tweet that had been disproved. I’m deleting now,” he wrote.

But Cruz called out Scarborough for sharing the video, and attacke dhim for being a “dishonest and corrupt” journalist.

Scarborough clapped back, escalating the feud by referencing Trump’s past insults of Cruz: “Ted, when I make a mistake I admit it. You remain mired in shame because you kowtow to a man who called your wife ugly and said your daddy assassinated JFK. Me messing up a tweet or two will never erase the shame you carry every day of your life.”

Cruz then hit back, comparing Scarborough to “a teenage girl throwing her panties at the latest boy band” by having Trump as a frequent guest on MSNBC during the 2016 Republican primary.

Scarborough ended the feud by dragging Cruz as a “Harvard and Princeton boy.”
