You’ll Want to Watch This Video of Ted Cruz Being Forced from Stage Again…and Again

It’s just so…wonderful.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was working himself into a lather, rallying the troops at the Freedom and Faith Coalition’s annual conference in Washington on Thursday, when all of a sudden a voiceover interrupted him—just as he was in the midst of a dramatic pause.

Here’s Cruz’s face when the announcer cut in to introduce the organization’s southern regional director, Virginia Galloway:

President Trump was also speaking at the event, while former FBI Director James Comey was giving riveting testimony before the Senate intelligence committee (read our big takeaways here).

The more we thought about how MoJo's journalism can have the most impact heading into the 2020 election, the more we realized that so many of today's stories come down to corruption: democracy and the rule of law being undermined by the wealthy and powerful for their own gain.

So we're launching a new Mother Jones Corruption Project to do deep, time-intensive reporting on systemic corruption. We aim to hire, build a team, and give them the time and space needed to understand how we got here and how we might get out. We'll publish what we find as a major series in the summer of 2020, including a special issue of our magazine, a dedicated online portal, and video and podcast series so it doesn't get lost in the daily deluge of breaking news.

It's unlike anything we've done before and we've got seed funding to get started, but we're asking readers to help crowdfund this new beat with an additional $500,000 so we can go even bigger. You can read why we're taking this approach and what we want to accomplish in "Corruption Isn't Just Another Scandal. It's the Rot Beneath All of Them," and if you like how it sounds, please help fund it with a tax-deductible donation today.
