WATCH The Surprising Thing Ted Cruz Just Said About Being Smeared As A ‘Crazy’ Terrorist

Liberal reaction to Ted Cruz’s announcement on Monday that he’s running for president has been predictably negative. But criticism of the Texas senator and his entry into the 2016 race has certainly not been limited to Democrats.

New York Republican Congressman Peter King, who has referred to Cruz as a “carnival barker,” yesterday told CNN that Cruz is “just a guy with a big mouth.” Rep. King added that he would jump off a bridge if the conservative lawmaker were to win the GOP nomination.

Responding to his critics on both sides of the aisle, Cruz told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday night that the media has depicted Republicans as either stupid or evil. He then went on to say that a third caricature has been invented for him — “crazy.”

Then with a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his lips reminiscent of how Ronald Reagan used to deal with an often hostile press, Cruz told Hannity that he takes that kind of caricature as “a little bit of a backhanded compliment.”

The first person to officially jump into the 2016 presidential contest went on to describe how media outlets “do everything they can” to portray him as a “wild-eyed” terrorist.

Ann Coulter: If Obama Gets His Way, It’ll Be All ‘Barack Obamas’ For President ‘Here On Out’

Ann Coulter, Hannity

Ann Coulter joined Sean Hannity on Thursday on the heels of President Obama’s delayed congratulation of Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu’s re-election. The conservative author discussed the tepid relationship between Obama and Netanyahu and what it could mean for the future.

“I think Republicans could learn from this,” Coulter said of Bibi’s re-election. “Of course [Obama] opposed.”

“I mean, instead of cowering in the face of left-wing ethnic agitation, how about pointing out that they’re bussing Somalis to the polls in Minnesota, how they’re dumping illegal alien absentee ballots on the polling booth in Arizona.”

She then sent a warning to Americans and conservatives about how their feud may not only affect elections here in the states, but relations with our “most loyal ally.”

“Unless America reaches a two-state solution with Mexico, this is what it’s going to be like for Israel,” Coulter said. “They will not have their most loyal ally in the world anymore. It will be Barack Obamas from here on out.”

She added that Democrats will be looking to build up their voting base using the illegals to add “20 million new voters,” thereby “compromising everything.”

This idea isn’t all that far-fetched as Obama just recently discussed having “mandatory voting,” thereby getting even more out-of-touch voters into booths.

Mark Levin To Obama: What About The Anti-Semitism That ‘Reeks From Your Administration’?

Mark Levin

Syndicated talk show host and author Mark Levin joined Sean Hannity on Fox News to tear into the Obama administration for their handling of the Israeli election and their “anti-semitism” directed towards Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel in general.

Levin suggested that if Eric Holder wants the nation to have a discussion about racism, we should also have a discussion about anti-semitism.

“This White House is reaching out to [Al] Sharpton, the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, all these radical nut jobs and groups,” Levin said. “… It’s not just Netanyahu, they’re willing to throw Israel over the side for the Islamo-regime in Tehran.”

“I don’t care how many liberal Democrat donors he [Obama] has who are Jewish. He can hide behind them all he wants,” Levin added. “But Mr. Holder, Mr. Obama, let’s have a national discussion about the anti-semitism that reeks from your administration!”

Hannity asked Levin if he believed Obama was anti-semitic, to which Levin responded with a resounding, “Yes I do!”

“Israel is surrounded, Israel was under attack with Hamas,” Levin explained. “His state department puts out these preposterous statements about moral relevancy. Israel is taking missiles, this president is holding back ammunition – slow walking it.”

“Does this sound like a guy who has a rational reason for his belief system?” Levin added. “I don’t think so!”

WATCH: This Disgusted Military Officer Just Blasted Obama For Not Being…Starts With ‘M’

Peters and Obama

“If President Obama developed athlete’s foot, he would blame George W. Bush.” That’s one of many criticisms of the president that Lt. Col. Ralph Peters fired off in a discussion with Sean Hannity Tuesday night. That particular quip came in reaction to Obama’s recent attempt to blame Bush for the rise of ISIS.

Col. Peters charged that Obama is wrong about so many things, especially when it comes to the military and foreign policy, because he “never really had a job in his life, has no contact with gritty, hard reality.”

In his appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” Peters also came down hard on the president for what the colonel claimed is a fundamental problem — “President Obama is just not manly.”

You can see exactly what Col. Peters meant by that comment and watch the rest of his interview with Sean Hannity by clicking on the video above.

Ferguson Protester Won’t Believe Facts About Michael Brown Case Amidst Shooting Of Two Officers

Protester Ferguson

Fox News’ Sean Hannity and a participant in the recent Ferguson protest that involved the shooting of two police officers butted heads while discussing this latest shooting, as well as that of Michael Brown.

The protester, Ivory Ned, called the twin shootings a “reaction” to the killing of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.

“You should be saying it’s wrong,” Hannity said, listing off the facts of the Brown case and adding that people shouldn’t be out shooting cops.

Ned couldn’t admit to any wrongdoing on Brown’s account, repeatedly stating that “the fact was Mike Brown laid on the ground for four hours.”

Hannity read him facts from Attorney General Eric Holder’s DOJ report, but Ned stayed defiant. He asked the host to put the facts up on “live TV,” despite being read the facts moments earlier from the DOJ:

Witness accounts suggesting that Brown was standing still with his hands raised in an unambiguous signal of surrender when Wilson shot Brown are inconsistent with the physical evidence, are otherwise not credible because of internal inconsistencies, or are not credible because of inconsistencies with other credible evidence.

In contrast, Wilson’s account of Brown’s actions, if true, would establish that the shootings were not objectively unreasonable under the relevant Constitutional standards governing an officer’s use of deadly force. Multiple credible witnesses corroborate virtually every material aspect of Wilson’s account and are consistent with the physical evidence.

Ned refused to believe the reports and argued with Hannity for the rest of the interview.
