What Cruz Just Said About Phil Robertson Has Liberals Going NUTS

Ted Cruz just said something at a South Carolina rally that has the liberal mainstream media falling over themselves to report.

According to CNN, the Republican presidential candidate shared the stage with "Duck Dynasty's" says-it-how-he-sees-it star Phil Robertson and said, "How much would you pay to see the Russian ambassador's face when Phil says, 'What is wrong with you people?'"

Some in the mainstream media were quick to suggest that Cruz was actually endorsing the duck hunting patriarch for U.N. ambassador.

In context, Cruz said, "You know what, there's a reason he terrifies the mainstream media. He says things you're not supposed to say. He actually remembers who we are as Americans, and he speaks it with a joy. Not with an anger, not with a hatred — with a joy in who we are. Just for a thought experiment, imagine for a second Phil Robertson...ambassador for the United Nations. How much would you pay to see the Russian ambassador's face when Phil says, 'What is wrong with you people?'"

The joke was met with much laughter and applause from the audience.
