Tuesday night on “The Kelly File,” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) sounded off on President Obama and his administration for treating climate change as a more serious threat to U.S. security than radical Islamic extremists.  

In response to the President’s remarks during a press conference at the White House on Tuesday -- where he called an upcoming summit on global warming “a powerful rebuke” to the deadly terror attacks on Paris -- Cruz said, “It’s gotten to the point where I don’t even think 'Saturday Night Live' can even parody this president anymore.”

“President Obama and John Kerry have both said that they think essentially your SUV in the driveway is a greater threat to our security than is ISIS, than is a nuclear Iran,” he went on, “and it makes no sense whatsoever.”

“You know what would be a real rebuke to ISIS?” the Texas senator asked. “When we kill the terrorists before they carry out another terror attack here at home.”
