<p>Coming out of retirement on Tuesday&rsquo;s <em>CBS This Morning</em> to comment on the state of the 2016 presidential race after the Iowa caucus, former <em>Face the Nation</em> moderator Bob Schieffer decided it was appropriate to compare the Republican winner to murderous Mexican drug lord El Chapo.</p>

<p>Co-host Norah O&rsquo;Donnell commented on what an impressive ground game Ted Cruz had put together in the state: &ldquo;Well, I think what we learned was that there was a higher percentage of evangelicals turning out than in 2008 and shows Ted Cruz really has a ground game....He has a superior organization.&rdquo; In response, Schieffer quipped: <strong>&ldquo;I mean, he had a better ground game out there than El Chapo might have had, you know.&rdquo;</strong></p>
