Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) has blasted the mainstream media, saying some members of the press are hoping the coronavirus pandemic will get worse so it will have a negative impact on President Donald Trump.

The Texas senator took a few jabs at the anti-Trump media during a Monday interview on Fox News with host Laura Ingraham.

Speaking of the way the press is handling the coronavirus coverage, Sen. Cruz said some in the MSM are "rooting for this pandemic to be worse and worse."

According to Cruz, the mainstream media is rooting for “disaster” because they believe it would be a mark against Trump's presidency.

Cruz cited an example of a tweet from The Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler.

Days earlier, Cruz challenged Kessler for questioning the president’s remarks about unemployment at the State of the Union address in February.

Kessler quoted a line from Trump's speech, boasting that it "did not age well:"

"Line from Trump's State of the Union address that did not age well: 'Incredibly, the average unemployment rate under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country.'"

Sen. Cruz shredded Kessler in response, accusing Trump-hating reporters of being "giddy with glee" over the pandemic.

“[Y]ou see the media — much of the mainstream media was trying to root for disaster,” Cruz told Ingraham over Skype.

“They’re rooting for this pandemic to be worse and worse.

"And you saw The Washington Post self-proclaimed 'fact-checker' was cheering about a line from the State of the Union where the president said we had the lowest unemployment in 50 years.

"And The Washington Post was saying, ‘Well, that didn’t stand up well to the test of time.'”

"Well, no, you moron,” Cruz continued.

"We had the lowest level of African-American and Hispanic unemployment ever recorded until a global pandemic that originated in Wuhan came and ended up causing absolute chaos and catastrophe.

"But yet, the media — we should be coming together to root for America, to root for defeating this pandemic, to root for jobs coming back.

"And I think too many partisan Democrats want to just use this catastrophe to attack Trump rather than come together and fight for our country.”
