Sen. Ted Cruz Dismisses Junior’s Scandal: None Of My Constituents Care About Russian Collusion [VIDEO]

Ted Cruz is in full deflect mode:

Speaking with reporters on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Cruz insisted that interest in the Russia scandal was simply a fixation of the media — and that average American citizens couldn’t care less.

“Washington is obsessed right now, it is the Democratic talking point du jour,” Cruz told a gaggle of reporters. “But when I go back to Texas, nobody asks about Russia. You know, I’ve held town halls all across the state of Texas, you know how many questions I’ve got on Russia? Zero.”

Cruz said that instead of the Russia scandal, real Americans were focused on repealing Obamacare and getting tax cuts, not whether the president of the United States colluded with a hostile foreign power to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.
