JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Following a tense exchange with Fox New host Sean Hannity this week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) took another swipe at the network’s coverage of Donald Trump and accusations that he’s wrangling delegates.

While appearing on “The Dom Giordano Program” in Philadelphia Friday, Cruz spoke on accusations of jockeying for delegates, according to BuzzFeed, and a conversation on that subject which put him in hot water with Hannity.

“They know it’s not true,” Cruz said, when asked if his strategy was unethical, according to BuzzFeed. “Donald doesn’t handle losing well and when we loses he cries and he screams and he whines and he curses and he insults everybody.”

Cruz went on to criticize the editorial decisions of Fox News and who they are “rooting for.”

“Well listen, Fox News has got to decide what stories they want to air and what stories they want to tell,” Cruz said, according to BuzzFeed. “I’m not going to worry about who they’re rooting for and what surrogates they put on and what messages they push. I’m gonna focus on my own positive message.”
