Ted Cruz's racist joke about Nigerians running the computer scam on ObamaCare has nothing to do with racism considering all the black Cuban blood in his Canadian born veins?
If he was going to make jokes about computer scammers, why not make jokes about Goldman Sachs, where Ted gets his healthcare insurance off his wife's dime.
“You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately,” Cruz said at a gathering with supporters in Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.
“They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website,” he joked.
But the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans, also known as CANAN, isn’t laughing. The group blasted Cruz, calling his comments distasteful and disparaging.
“Cruz has maligned all hardworking, decent and outstanding Nigerian-Americans who add value and bring goodwill to their different communities, especially in Texas, with the largest concentration of Nigerian-Americans in this country,” the group said in a statement released Thursday.
And that’s not the only place where Cruz’s joke fell flat.
The Nigerian ambassador to the United States also wants an apology from the senator.
