In what can only be seen as a case of pure denial, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is now saying that he wasn’t born in Canada even though he was born in Canada.
Cruz sat down with Free Wood Post in an exclusive interview to discuss his questioned citizenship status:
FWP: Thank you for agreeing to speak with us regarding the growing question of your eligibility to run for president.
CRUZ: It’s really my pleasure. It will be nice to finally clear the air.
FWP: Since it’s true that you were born in Calgary, Alberta, and you lived there for a time as a child, you can probably see why people are hesitant when you say you’re a natural-born citizen.
CRUZ: No, not at all. My mother was born in Delaware, decided to move to Canada to be with my father who was from Cuba, set up roots, even vote a few times, which you’d have to be a citizen to do, but that doesn’t mean I’m not a natural-born American.
FWP: It actually seems like you just stated the case for the opposite.
CRUZ: No, you’re misinterpreting what I’m saying. What I’m saying is, just because I was born in Canada doesn’t mean I was born in Canada.
FWP: (blank stare)
CRUZ: You don’t seem to believe me.
FWP: (blank stare)
CRUZ: I find your lack of faith in my explanation disturbing. I’m as American as Arnold Schwarzenegger.
FWP: He’s not eligible to run for office. He was born in Austria.
CRUZ: Just because he was born in Austria doesn’t mean he was born in Austria.
FWP: Actually, that’s exactly what it means. Are you now admitting that you’re born in Canada and are, in fact, not eligible.
CRUZ: That’s not what I’m saying at all.
FWP: I think it is.
CRUZ: This interview is over.
It was then when Cruz abruptly ended the interview and stormed off with a few of his campaign aids. However, as he was storming off he could be heard saying, “Just because I’m Canadian doesn’t mean I’m Canadian!”
No, Teddy, that’s exactly what it means.
