Sen. Ted Cruz (TP-Texas) fired his communications director and top spokesman Rick Tyler, after Tyler promoted a video that wrongly depicted Sen. Marco Rubio (Est.-Florida) as trash-talking the Bible.
The Cruz campaign linked to a story showing a video of Rubio walking by a Cruz staffer and Cruz’s father Rafael, who were reading the Bible in a hotel lobby. The subtitles on the video showed Rubio saying to the staffer, “Got a good book there, not many answers in it.”
Rubio communications director Alex Conant later tweeted out the same video with what he says are the correct subtitles. Speaking of the Bible, Rubio says, “All the answers are in there.”
If there is a single person out there who doesn’t think this kind of campaign trickery begins and ends with the Junior Senator himself, then Red has some interesting investment options for you. Tyler is a fall guy that had to go when this kind of abject dirty trick was exposed.
