Ted Cruz was at his Ted Cruz-iest today after a meeting with local officials in Beaumont, Texas.
The senator and GOP presidential candidate faced questions from reporters about gay marriage, and responded with this, according to a report in the Washington Post.
"Is there something about the left — and I am going to put the media in this category — that is obsessed with sex?
"ISIS is executing homosexuals — you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very bad week for gay rights because the expansion of ISIS, the expansion of radical, theocratic, Islamic zealots that crucify Christians, that behead children and that murder homosexuals — that ought to be concerning you far more than asking six questions all on the same topic.”
That was followed with a shot at MSNBC: "With respect, I would suggest not drawing your questions from MSNBC," he said. "They have very few viewers and they are a radical and extreme partisan outlet."
