Ted Cruz has been having a rough time campaigning in New York.
His “New York Values” gaffe on the debate stage may have been an effective tool against Donald Trump in such…ahem…progressive places as Texas, but when it came time for the Empire State to start welcoming candidates ahead of its primary next week,
Cruz has found himself in the precarious situation of being on the bad side of New Yorkers of every political affiliation.
The end result looks like a sweep of the state by Donald Trump that will probably be the kill shot to Cruz’s hopes of getting enough delegates to win the nomination. As if that weren’t bad enough, Bernie Sanders went on Larry Wilmore Wednesday night and delivered a smackdown of Cruz so epic even he knew it, actually dropping the mic when he was finished.There are few moments in politics this beautiful.
Sanders speaks eloquently and with a passion that New Yorkers — and all Americans — can be proud of. Enjoy the clip below, courtesy of Comedy Central:
