Here’s the headline for that article:
Yeah … that’s not what Cruz said.
@thehill out of context a bit?

Just a bit:
“I think there’s been some vicious rhetoric on the left blaming those who are pro-life,” Cruz said according toaudio from The Texas Tribune.
“It’s also been reported that he was registered as an independent and a woman and a transgendered leftist activist. If that’s what he is, I don’t think it’s fair to blame the rhetoric on the left. This is a murderer,” Cruz continued.
“We’ll find more about the facts of it, but I don’t think we should jump to conclusions until we know actually the facts of this individual,” Cruz added.
Nice work, The Hill. Good to see just how much honest journalism matters to you guys.
That's not at all what he said. He said that the quoted words have been part of reports about the shooter. @thehill

@thehill no, you nitwits. What he SAID was there was vicious rhetoric going around including this. What he is saying is we need FACTS first

A masterful exercise in the press missing the point. His point was there are a lot of unverified claims out there. https://t.co/RjNH7SCsAL

@thehill He didn't say that. Are any of you guys there sober?

@thehill You're a dishonest hack. This headline totally misrepresents what he said.

@thehill Did you read the story, click-baiting headline writer?

Hey, Vox can play that game, too!
Vox misunderstood (?) a Ted Cruz quote and wrote an entire piece on it. https://t.co/YDmG5hNDyE
