Wolf Blitzer: Sally Yates 'Basically Crushed' Ted Cruz

The CNN host said Cruz "met his match."

CNN’s Wolf Blitzer didn’t beat around the bush when describing the now-viral confrontation between Sen. Ted Cruz and former acting Attorney General Sally Yates

“She basically crushed him,” Blitzer said on “The Situation Room” on Monday. 

“I was going to say, ‘Sen. Cruz, you met your match,’” Dana Bash, the network’s chief political correspondent, replied. “But ‘crushed him’ is your word, and I think that’s just fine.” 

Bash said Cruz was trying to play “legal gotcha,” but Yates got the better of him by citing the Constitution. 

Cruz “is a very very smart guy, but he met his match,” Blitzer added.
