Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is being roasted online for threatening to go after Major League Baseball after the organization decided to pull the 2021 MLB All-Star Game out of Atlanta in response to a voter suppression bill passed by the Republican legislature aimed at tamping down Black voters.
Cruz fired off a tweet demanding his followers to boycott MLB’s sponsors before later saying he and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) were going to try and strip professional baseball’s anti-trust exemption away.
Twitter users quickly burst his bubble by reminding him that he has no power as Democrats now control the Senate. Check some of the responses below.
You don't have control of Congress so this tweet is as meaningless as all your and Mike's silly photo-ops at the border, Ted.

Go get your flashlight Ted and go back out into the bushes. Fighting non-existing crime or hostile cactuses – whatever you were doing out there.

MLB has every right to move any game wherever the hell they want to without the federal government butting in– that's laissez-faire capitalism — check your "GOP" handbook… sounds like you think you're in China

Sounds like you are afraid of Stacy Abrams.

No it sounds like he thinks the GQP's coup worked and we're now a fascist country run by dictators

Awww you guys are so cute acting tough.
Nothing will happen. Not a thing. It's all posturing and waste of time.
Great Job @MLB . Majority is behind you.
4 every Ted there is an exact equal and opposite Ted.

Look at you boys all into cancel culture suddenly. By the way, it's a really big abuse of power you're about to engage in. But have at it Ted. Tax the churches next.

The Church is who needs to be taxed, especially those politico preacher for profit churches.

They oppose voter suppression. Stop play acting like you don’t know exactly what’s happening.

What part of "The People have the Right To Vote" do you not understand Senator? What part of "not allowing water or food given to people in a LONG line being illegal now in Georgia" do you think is Good? How is any form of voter suppression allowed? By The way Worry about Texas.
