Cruz Campaign Apologizes For False Video Claiming Rubio Made Fun Of A Bible

Ted Cruz’s campaign is apologizing after posting a video erroneously showing fellow GOP Presidential candidate Marco Rubio trashing a Bible.

According to The Hill:

“A top aide to Ted Cruz late Sunday issued an apology to Marco Rubio after distributing a video that appeared to show the Republican presidential rival dismissing the Bible.

“I want to apologize to Senator Marco Rubio for posting an inaccurate story about him here earlier today,” Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler wrote in a public note posted to Facebook.

“The story misquoted a remark the Senator made to the [Cruz] staffer. I assumed wrongly that the story was correct,” Tyler wrote. “I’ve deleted the post because I would not knowingly post a false story.”

The story the Cruz aide mentioned was about a video showing Rubio in a hotel lobby walking past Cruz’s father, Rafael, and a Cruz staffer who was reportedly reading a Bible.”
