Sen. Ted Cruz’ Chief of Staff Makes Bad Ebola Joke

Sen. Ted Cruz’ Deputy Chief of Staff, Nick Muzin, made a bad joke about Ebola basically blaming the disease on “Obamacare” of all things.

It seems he thought expanding healthcare coverage (Obamacare) somehow led to infectious disease (Ebola). Or at the very least, was funny.

I know, I know… find me some logic or humor in that.

Then, he deleted the tweet and followed up with this:

But not before the world saw it and screen captured it.

This is a man who advises Ted Cruz. This is a man who has a US Senator’s ear.

This guy most probably dreams of being at the White House someday.

Or, rather, did dream of such things.
