And the hits keep on coming for Ted Cruz. First, his campaign falsely claimed that Ben Carson was planning on dropping out of the presidential race after the Iowa Caucus, and that Carson supporters should transfer their votes to Cruz. Then, news leaked of a secret meeting between the Carson and Cruz camps in South Carolina in a dark closet that “did not go well.”
Now, Cruz’s spokesperson has been asked to resign moments before he was supposed to appear on MSNBC over a false video of Marco Rubio being dismissive of the Bible.
According to CNN, the spokesperson in question, Rick Tyler, had apologized on Facebook for posting a story about the video with a supposedly inaccurate quote of what Rubio said. The wrong quote apparently was: “Got a good book there, not many answers in it.”
Rubio’s communications director said the correct quote was: “Got a good book there, all the answers are in there.”
