While everyone in the media freaks out over Ted Cruz’s comments aligning Trump with “New York values,” the Tednado is doubling down by poking a little fun at New Yorkers at a campaign stop today.

Here’s his full statement, and he is NOT backing down!!

As a person who lives in New York but moved here from somewhere else, I really think that this is not the “gaffe” that the media is making it out to be. While the country absolutely stood with New York City on 9/11 and the rebuilding, that’s not what Cruz is referring to, and everyone knows it.

There is a huge gulf between the values of the majority of New York City denizens and the rest of the country, and it’s all he’s doing is driving a wedge between the media and America while forcing the Donald to hug Hillary and other lefty New York lovers.
