Sen. Ted Cruz, who’s been gaining steadily in the delegate count in the Republican primary for president, took shots at the Drudge Report during a recent radio interview, saying the popular headline news site has been displaying a decided pro-Donald Trump slant for some time.

As Breitbart noted, Cruz was asked during an interview on the Mike Slater Show on KFMB 760 AM for his thoughts about the Drudge Report in recent weeks, “not even about Trump, but their anti-Christian headlines?”

And Cruz’s reply?

“Look, Drudge Report over the years has done a good job highlighting the excesses of the left and the excesses of liberalism, and about the past month the Drudge Report has basically become the attack site for the Donald Trump campaign,” Cruz said. “And so every day they have the latest Trump attack. They’re directed at me. It – by all appearances, Roger Stone now decides what’s on Drudge, and most days they have a six-month-old article that is some attack on me, and it’s – whatever the Trump campaign is pushing that day will be the banner headline on Drudge.”

Cruz then said the site “no longer cover[s] news,” and avoids timely poll coverage.

“By the way,” he went on, Breitbart reported, “they no longer cover news. Remember they used to have things like election results? They don’t put those on Drudge anymore. When we win a state, suddenly the state doesn’t matter. You know Colorado – there was no red siren on Drudge when we won all 34 delegates in Colorado. That wasn’t news, because – I mean listen, that’s fine. If people want to get on the ‘Trump train,’ they can. I actually think we need real and meaningful solutions to the problems in this country, and as president my focus is going to be on three things: jobs, freedom and security.”

He went on: “I’m going to let others worry about the silly political game and the circus.”
