Seth Meyers has the scoop on Ted Cruz’s dirty tricks in the latest ‘A Closer Look’ segment on Late Night. Ted Cruz has come under fire for spreading misinformation about other candidates, and it isn’t helping his campaign. Cruz came in third in South Carolina and even lost evangelicals to Trump. And this week, Cruz fired aide Rick Tyler for reporting on a video of Marco Rubio that inaccurately claims Rubio said the Bible has no answers. Tyler stands by the source of the video, which turns out to be a college newspaper.
During the Iowa primary, Cruz aides tweeted “Carson looks like he’s out” after Carson announced he was leaving Iowa, not the race. “To be fair, ‘Carson looks like he’s out’ is just how most people would describe Ben Carson.” This is just the latest in a series of incidents, and his tricks don’t seem to be working. Cruz came in third again in Tuesday’s Nevada caucus.
