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.

In 2014, before Donald Trump announced his run for president, we knew we had to do something different to address the fundamental challenge facing journalism: how hard-hitting reporting that can hold the powerful accountable can survive as the bottom falls out of the news business.

Being a nonprofit, we started planning The Moment for Mother Jones, a special campaign to raise $25 million for key investments to make Mother Jones the strongest watchdog it can be. Five years later, readers have stepped up and contributed an astonishing $23 million in gifts and future pledges. This is an incredible statement from the Mother Jones community in the face of huge threats—both economic and political—against the free press.

Read more about The Moment and see what we've been able to accomplish thanks to readers' incredible generosity so far, and please join them today. Your gift will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $500,000 total, during this critical moment for journalism.
