You can’t say that Sen. Ted Cruz doesn’t understand politics in New England. While attending an event in Massachusetts last weekend, he joked to the audience that he knew exactly who was behind the New England Patriots’ “Delfategate” mess:

Ha! Makes sense to us. And there’s probably a high-profile witness who is covering for Hillary…

Of course Brian Williams was there! More snark:

Nope. Sarcasm is not their strong suit, that’s for sure.

But in all seriousness, Tom Brady’s refusal to provide emails to the NFL is one of the reasons he got into so much trouble. From NESN.com:

Wells wasn’t able to provide any definitive evidence. Part of the reason might be because Brady refused to give up any emails or text messages related to the investigation.

[…]

“Brady’s refusal to provide us with his own emails, text messages and phone records on relevant topics, in response to our narrowly tailored requests, limited the evidence available for our review and analysis,” the report said.

Exit question: Why is the NFL tougher on Tom Brady than the MSM is on Hillary Clinton?
