Newsmax' Greg Kelly Congratulates Ted Cruz For Hiring Comedian Blaire Erskine

Is it parody or is it real, people wondered?

A couple of months ago Blaire Erskine put out the satirical video as the Director of Communications for Senator Ted Cruz, after his aborted Cancun fiasco. It was funny as hell, of course. Well, it turns out that Newsmax anchor Greg Kelly just got around to seeing it, and well, you can judge for yourself whether he's making a joke or not. My guess is he isn't.

The Internet weighed in.

As did Blaire herself.
