The other day Ted Cruz criticized Donald Trump for what he called The Donald’s “New York values.”
In responding to criticism of the remark, Cruz blathered about the New York and Washington “media elite,” liberals, abortion, and other such matters.
There are many, many wonderful working men and women in New York. But everyone understands that the values of New York City are socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage, focused around money and the media.
While Cruz’s remarks didn’t entirely apply to Trump, the reference to money and the media are code words and we all know what they mean. That, in turn, enables us to observe that once again, life imitates art.
