One of the highlights of Thursdays's debate was the Donald Trump/Ted Cruz confrontation over Cruz's comments about "New York Values."
Trump's answer, which cited the city's united response to the September 11 terrorist attacks, was praised by virtually everyone, including Hillary Clinton:
Just this once, Trump's right: New Yorkers value hard work, diversity, tolerance, resilience, and building better lives for our families. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) January 15, 2016
In response to Cruz's quip about "New York Values," the hashtag #NewYorkValues trended on Twitter for the better part of Friday, pointing out "real" New York values--both serious and in jest.
Running out of things to talk about at parties and always always always reverting to finding an apartment & hating the train #NewYorkValues— Erin Gloria Ryan (@morninggloria) January 15, 2016
For what it's worth, Cruz eventually apologized to New Yorkers, kind of.
