Lawrence O'Donnell Attacks Ted Cruz Again: Calls Him 'McCarthyesque'

MSNBC's Lawrence O’Donnell singled out Cruz for being “so perfectly and childly McCarthyesque.” And in an interview with The Dallas Morning News, when Cruz was asked if he admires McCarthy, he answered, “I’m not going to engage in the back and forth and the attacks.”

O’Donnell marveled at how Cruz could not bring himself to simply deny that he admires McCarthy, whom O’Donnell called a “lying alcoholic” and to which he concluded that maybe Cruz doesn’t necessarily mind the McCarthy comparisons in the press (mediaite)

O'Donnell: 'You would have to admit there is a bit of resemblence there'
