Ted Cruz blasts Joe Scarborough on Twitter over fake news tweet

Texas Senator Ted Cruz and MSNBC host Joe Scarborough are trading barbs on Twitter after Scarborough shared a now deleted tweet with a fake news story from late night host Jimmy Kimmel.

Cruz called him out on it and Scarborough apologized, not realizing the tweet was misleading information.

But the two continued to exchange barbs on the social media site with Cruz calling out his lack of journalism skills when he claims to be one.

“Hmm. When you’re on the defensive for being dishonest & corrupt, perhaps best not to forward fraudulent stories from Jimmy Kimmel (that he’s admitted were false)? You are claiming to be a journalist, after all,” Cruz tweeted.

Scarborough replied that Cruz should be ashamed for supporting President Trump after all the insults then candidate Trump threw at Cruz’s family on the 2016 campaign trail.

Cruz had the last laugh though, tweeting, “Joe, you chased after Trump for 2 years like a teenage girl throwing her panties at the latest boy band; now you pretend to be this indignant paragon of virtue outraged at everything he says & does. All to get invited to DC cocktail parties & thrill the 13 people watching MSNBC.”
