Colbert: Cruz Is ‘A White Person’

CBS’ “The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert stated that Texas Senator and Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is “a white person” on Wednesday.

After Georgetown University Professor and MSNBC Political Analyst Michael Eric Dyson said, “[W]e’ve got a guy running for president right now who led a birther movement suggesting this man was not really an American citizen.” Colbert responded, “But now, Donald Trump has moved to accusing a white person of not being from America. Isn’t that progress? Now that he’s accusing Cruz, isn’t that racial progress?”
