Ted Cruz blasts Hammer Thrower Gwen Berry, asks “Why does the Left hate America?”

Sunday, Senator Ted Cruz blasted Hammer thrower Gwen Berry, who turned away from the flag during the playing of the national anthem.

Cruz asked “Why does the Left hate America?”

“Sure, we have our faults, but no nation in the history of the world has liberated more people from captivity, has lifted more out of poverty, has bled more for freedom, or has blessed more w/ abundance. God bless America,” he added.

Berry has been firing back at critics on Twitter.
