By now, the Senate and the mainstream liberal media should all share one common thread of knowledge: Ted Cruz is NOT the man to challenge.
I personally love Ted Cruz. He’s got his faults, like all politicians, but I admire his debate skills. He can roast a leftist like a pig over an open flame. And he sent Beto O’Rourke back to the hole he crawled out of.
Therefore, I wasn’t the least bit surprised to see he tore into the media when they decided to toss a ridiculous masking question Cruz’ way. I hear he was so animated, he slammed his hands down on his podium.
During a press conference speaking out against Democrats trying to eliminate the filibuster, a reporter questioned Cruz about him and his fellow Republicans not wearing masks. Cruz quickly shot down the question and angrily asked why the “questions are only directed at one side” on masks.
“And by the way, on the question of hypocrisy, you just asked, you people at the podium are speaking without masks. Just once, I’d like to see a reporter say to Joe Biden when he stands at the damn podium in the White House without a mask, ‘Mr. President, why aren’t you wearing a mask?'” Cruz said angrily. “Just once, I’d like to see you say to Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, when she stands at the podium with no mask, ‘Ms. Psaki, why don’t you have a mask?’ The questions are only directed at one side, and I got to say that the American people see the hypocrisy.”
Of course we see the hypocrisy. I haven’t even seen the media confront Dr. Fauci for his repeated lies. One would think in the wake of the recent Project Veritas
Twice, Cruz thumped his hands on the podium for effect.
The exchange began at the 51:50 mark below, as the reporter noted what she called the “glaring visual” of most of the assembled media wearing masks indoors.
“I think there’s been wild hypocrisy from the Biden administration when it comes to COVID policies [on] mask mandates where Joe Biden rightly said we shouldn’t have mandates, [on] vaccine mandates where Joe Biden said we shouldn’t have vaccine mandates. As far as I know, everyone here has been vaccinated, double vaccinated, been boosted at some point,” Cruz said.
He added, “I do know Dr. Fauci’s been all over the map about it. He’s said yes masks, no masks, he’s said, ‘Oh, I lied to the American people because they couldn’t handle it.’ At some point, the American people ought to be able to exercise their own freedom and make their decision.”
Of course, Cruz didn’t win any points for his own personal mask policy. He refuses to wear one after being vaccinated against the WuFlu. And why should he? Didn’t the vaccine mean he could go maskless? That’s what Fauci originally promised. And that is the promise Ted Cruz is holding him to. Because we all know the death poke doesn’t have any other benefits.
