PBS’s David Brooks: ‘I’d Forgotten How Ugly Ted Cruz Could Be’

The latest edition of PBS NewsHour’s regular “Shields and Brooks” segment — which pits liberal Mark Shields up against pretend conservative David Brooks allegedly to provide balance — not only featured both analysts slamming GOP presidential candidate and Texas Senator Ted Cruz from the left over terrorism, but the liberal Shields actually admonished President Barack Obama for his reaction to the Brussels terrorist attacks while faux-conservative Brooks wholeheartedly defended Obama’s behavior in Cuba. In Friday’s discussion of the political aftermath of the Brussels terrorist attacks and Cruz’s recommendation of more police engagement with Muslim communities, Brooks griped that he had forgotten “how ugly Ted Cruz could be” because of Donald Trump’s recent behavior, and Shields declared that the Texas Senator’s idea was “beyond stupid.”
