Megyn asked Cruz stupid questions on immigration, addressed him as an imperial president: what are YOU going to do about X?
He answered that he’d do Y. Dumb.
He SHOULD HAVE SAID,
“Look, Megyn, you know the Constitution gives no role to the president in domestic policy. The job of the president is to enforce the law, and that’s what Obama has not been doing & what GOP leadership has let him get away with.
“I’m going to do the job of the president – act as a Constitutional president. For a change.
“We have laws dealing with immigration. The job of the president is to enforce them. If the people don’t agree with those laws, they need to ensure they elect a Congress that passes the laws they want to form the nation they want their children to live in.
“The question you are asking seems to assume an imperial, extra-Constitutional role for the president, just because the current president is acting that way & abusing the Constitution. I won’t be that kind of president so your question really isn’t relevant.”
… but he missed that opportunity…
