Newsweek ‘Senior Writer’ Calls Ted Cruz and His Iowa Supporters Nazis

Alexander Nazaryan, a Senior Writer for Newsweek, posted a picture to Twitter overnight of Nazis marching under Swastika flags to illustrate his statement that Republican presidential candidate “Ted Cruz has a strong ground game in Iowa.”

Nazaryan deleted the tweet, however it was captured and reposted by @CuffyMeh.

Wednesday morning, Nazaryan noted he had deleted the tweet:

“I deleted my tweet calling Ted Cruz a Nazi. Not fair to his totally decent supporters, as much as I dislike the man himself.”
