This was after Tyler had shared this story on Sunday with bad subtitles accusing Marco Rubio of mocking Cruz’s father and a staffer for reading a Bible. When the duplicity was discovered in the video, Tyler’s Facebook post was left up for hours. He has since apologized, but it looks like it wasn’t enough.
I’ll have a video of Ted Cruz’s statement up soon.
