When supporters of GOP presidential candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz began accusing Fox News host Sean Hannity of unfairly giving GOP front-runner Donald Trump more air time than their preferred candidate, he swiftly fired back with a couple of devastating truth bombs.
“For the last 10 days I have offered @SenTedCruz another full hour on my show,” he wrote on Twitter this Friday. “I was told they could not make it work.”
