Sen. Ted Cruz on Friday had a prediction about the attention the media would pay to the Nation of Islam follower who killed a Capitol Police officer with his car and attacked another with a knife before being gunned down.

Cruz was almost right; Noah Green isn’t trending on Twitter, but he did get a write-up in Stars and Stripes that was oddly complimentary:

No kidding.

You know why it sounds like a Washington Post obituary? Because it was written by the Washington Post and reprinted by Stars and Stripes.

That’s it.
