    Ted Cruz Angers Nigerian-Americans With Obamacare Remarks (ABC News)


    Sen. Ted Cruz's sense of humor is earning him some ill will from near and far.
    A Nigerian-American organization wants the Texas Republican to apologize for comments he made Monday about the problems with the Affordable Care Act website.
    "You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately," Cruz said at a gathering with supporters in Houston, according to the Houston Chronicle.
    "They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website," he joked.
    But the Christian Association of Nigerian-Americans, also known as CANAN, isn't laughing. The group blasted Cruz, calling his comments distasteful and disparaging.
    "Cruz has maligned all hardworking, decent and outstanding Nigerian-Americans who add value and bring goodwill to their different communities, especially in Texas, with the largest concentration of Nigerian-Americans in this country," the group said in a statement released Thursday.
    And that's not the only place where Cruz's joke fell flat.
    The Nigerian ambassador to the United States also wants an apology from the senator.

    Morgan Freeman Slams Republican Party: I Think They've Destroyed Themselves

    [​IMG]


    Morgan Freeman has one thing to say to the Republican party: WTF?
    In an interview with The Daily Beast, Freeman slammed the GOP, saying they "pretty much destroyed themselves" by allowing the Tea Party to have so much control.
    "The lengths that people will go to to show their prejudices! You see some of these signs that say, 'TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK!' What the f--- is that? Whose country are you talking about?" Freeman said. "They are being pushed to the side, which is a good thing for them to realize: you don't have the power you think you have in this country."
