Ted Cruz on Violent Trump Rallies: "Responsibility Starts At The Top"

Nice job Ted, way to sound like David Gergen and all the other left-wing commentators on cable news. It was clear that these Trump protests were organized by leftists on social media, like BLM and MoveOn.org days before the Trump rally ever took place.

I would say this is a low point for Ted Cruz in the presidential campaign.

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz said on Sunday that the protesters at rival Donald Trump's rallies are behaving "abusively and wrong," but added that it doesn't help when the GOP front-runner encourages violence.

"At the end of the day in any campaign, responsibility starts at the top," the Texas senator said on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

"And it is not beneficial when you have a presidential candidate like Donald Trump telling his supporters, 'Punch that guy in the face.' We ought to have a president who brings us together, who doesn't seek to divide us."

Cruz said on Sunday that the protesters at Trump's rallies don't have a right to "threaten violence."

He added that it's important a candidate show respect for the voters. He said he's been "troubled" by the rallies Trump holds, noting the pledge Trump asks people to take at some of his rallies to support him.

I took a look at the comments section. The criticism of Cruz here was swift.
