Daily Beast's Tina Brown Likens Ted Cruz to Taliban
On Wednesday, MSNBC faux conservative morning host Joe Scarborough ripped into Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) over Cruz’s attempt to push defunding of Obamacare. “He is attacking Tom Coburn as being a member of the surrender caucus, when Tom Coburn – and yes, Senator Cruz, and I – put our political lives on the line more in six months than Ted Cruz will put his on the line in a lifetime.”
Tina Brown, editor of the Daily Beast, promptly labeled Cruz a “no government conservative….This is the Taliban,” she said.
