[su_right_ad]Congressman Peter King said that Ted Cuz is “a carnival barker” who shouldn’t be president. Cruz’s fine and erudite supporters have not met that with the queen’s English.

King said young aides, interns and other staffers who answer the phones in his offices are being cursed at by Cruz supporters.

“The puerile language used is what most kids outgrow and move beyond when they reach sophomore year in high school,” King said.

In an interview, King said despite his involvement in many controversial issues, similar levels of vitriol have hit his office only twice — when he ripped Cruz during the government shutdown in 2013, and when he called Michael Jackson “a pervert” after the pop star’s 2009 death…

King said Cruz isn’t responsible for his backers’ words.

But “there is something that Cruz has tapped into among his supporters that brings out the lowest common denominator,” King said.

“He totally oversimplifies issues,” King said. “He is a demagogue.”

    “A carnival barker and demagogue who totally oversimplifies issues.” And those are his GOOD qualities.
