Ted Cruz gave a speech over the weekend in New Hampshire, when he was discussing Obama’s disastrous foreign policy, stating “The world is on fire.” It turns out a 3 year old named Julia in the audience took the message literally, asking in a panic “The world is on fire?” Cruz responded “The world is on fire, yes. Your world is on fire.”
However, Cruz quickly reassured Julia. “But you know what? Your mommy’s here and everyone’s here to make sure that the world you grow up in is even better.” The crowd clapped in response, and she felt better. Even the mother of Julia, who happens to be a fan of Cruz, said in an interview there were no tears from Julia and that she felt happy when she realized there was literally no fire present.
But as Cruz’s critics on the left always do, they always try to make something out of nothing, especially with him being a possible 2016 presidential candidate. Apparently many left wing sources clearly were not watching the same video everyone else did, because an article from Addicting Info said Ted Cruz made the girl cry in their title. In their first sentence, it reads ‘Ted Cruz took his doomsday rhetoric way too far on Sunday when he screamed at a little girl that her “world is on fire,” causing her to cry in terror.’ This is clearly a lie.
You can see the video below and tell us if the girl was crying or not (Hint: She didn’t cry.)
Gawker’s article said Cruz ‘terrifies’ the little girl. Funny how the author of these sources, who probably weren’t even at the event, disregards Julia’s mother’s own words saying Cruz did not scare her child.
However other sources didn’t want the facts to get in their way.

These sources turn a blind eye when Harry Reid infamously said ‘why help kids with cancer’ during one of his press conferences. If anyone scares little kids, it would be him if you ask me. However, since he is a liberal Democrat, the media gives him a pass.
Ted Cruz didn’t scare anyone, and Julia’s own mother said so herself. But because the left is so scared that he is a strong potential 2016 candidate for president, they are desperate to smear him as a villain in any way they can. Bottom line is they’re entitled to their opinion, but not entitled to their own facts.
