CNN Host’s Attempt at Dunking on Ted Cruz Goes Awry

CNN’s Brian Stelter, arguably the dumbest person in media, tried dunking on Senator Ted Cruz for posting a funny meme about Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s recent edicts on social distancing.

The picture Cruz tweeted was allegedly of Whitmer signing a bill that imposed a fine on Michigan’s residents who don’t follow social distancing orders, with Whitmer and her aides crowded together in that very moment. Cruz joked “As I could it, that’s $11k [in fines] right there…”

However, it turned out that the picture was from 2019, before the social distancing dictates were put in place. Stelter then seized upon that fact to fact-check Cruz’s joke.

Cruz then destroyed Stelter like only Cruz can:

So in other words, Stelter was effectively criticizing Cruz for trusting the mainstream media – a mistake I’m sure won’t happen again.
