Ted Cruz Celebrates Super Tuesday With Bigoted Radio Host Michael Berry

Blog ››› ››› ANDREW LAWRENCE

Texas radio host Michael Berry posted a picture of himself and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) backstage following Cruz's Republican primary victories in Texas and Oklahoma.

Houston's KPRC reported that Cruz watched the election results from Berry's "Redneck Country Club" which was identified as his "campaign headquarters." Berry's relationship with Cruz goes back more than twenty years and Berry even introduced Cruz on stage in Iowa the night before the caucuses.

As a radio host, Berry has become known for his racially charged rhetoric, including describing black people as "jungle animals," regularly hosting a comedian in blackface whose stage name is "Shirley Q. Liquor," claiming that "black people don't believe that black lives matter."
