Ted Cruz put a reporter in his place Wednesday after the journalist asked Cruz to wear a mask as the Texas senator stepped to the microphone to address the media.
“Would you mind putting your mask on for us?” the reporter can be heard saying.
Cruz wasn’t having any of it: “Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera, I’m not going to wear a mask. All of us have been immunized.”
“It would make us feel better,” the reporter replied.
That’s when Cruz dropped this nugget on the media member: “You’re welcome to step away if you like.”
