WATCH: Ted Cruz Blasts Reporter Who Suggests Half His Children Should Be in Prison

During a fiery press gaggle where Senator Ted Cruz was presenting the case for Biden corruption, a reporter said to Cruz “Basically, what they said is Hunter Biden got a job, his dad is vice president. If that’s a crime, shouldn’t half of your children be in prison?”

Cruz was quick to point out his children are 9 and 11 year old.

Per Townhall, a reporter said Trump’s defense team failed to show any potential crimes Joe or Hunter Biden committed.

“Basically, what they said is Hunter Biden got a job, his dad is vice president. If that’s a crime, shouldn’t half of your children be in prison?” the reporter asked.

Cruz clapped back at the reporter.

“My children are nine and 11 and I’m sorry you want to throw a nine-year-old in prison, but at this point, my third grader plays basketball and softball at her school,” he said, with other legislators behind him laughing. “So stop playing the nasty Washington game–”

“That’s not a nasty Washington game,” the reporter replied.

“Attacking a nine-year-old?” Cruz asked, clearly flabbergasted.
