Ted Cruz got the scolding of a lifetime from Bronx natives during his campaign stop.
Gonzalo and Rodrigo Venegas had a strong and clear message for Ted Cruz: He is not welcome in the “Boogie Down Bronx.” Cruz is in New York campaigning ahead of the state’s April 19 primary. After such an impressive win in Wisconsin, you would assume that things are coming up roses for the Canadian-born politician. LOL nope.
“We are an immigrant community,” one of the Venegas brothers told reporters in the video. “Ted Cruz, he is a racist who represents the white supremacy. We are not going to allow that in our neighborhood.”
No doubt they were calling attention to Cruz’s unabashed anti-immigrant rhetoric.
Unable to take the heat, Cruz pulled a Trump and had the protesters ejected.

WTF was Cruz thinking? Did he really believe that New Yorkers would welcome him with open arms after sh*ttalking the Bronx in 2014? And don’t forget that the GOP candidate was also in hot water earlier this campaign season after attacking what he called “New York values.”
We’re curious to see how Cruz will try to walk back such negative comments in a state that has clearly not forgotten what he’s said. We’ll watch closely and see how this whole thing unfolds April 19.
