Ted Cruz: I Agree With Obama, Sterling Remarks Were ‘Ignorant And Offensive’


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) highlighted one place where he and President Barack Obama agree. They both think the racist comments by Donald Sterling offensive.”

Cruz, a Houston Rockets fan, noted that rare place of agreement on his Facebook on Tuesday, soon after the National Basketball Association announced that Sterling had been banned from the NBA and any association with the Los Angeles Clippers for life.

“I agree with President Obama: Don Sterling’s comments are ignorant and offensive. Millions of Americans of all races love the NBA, and these racist sentiments have utterly no place in our society,” Cruz said in the message posted on his Facebook.

Cruz also linked to a clip of Obama responding to Sterling’s comments.
