Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) is being ridiculed after he managed to impale himself while attempting to attack Democrats on Monday.
Speaking to Sean Hannity on Fox News, Cruz ripped Democrats for being too loyal to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). But his comment inevitably brought up his own relationship with former President Donald Trump instead.
“It’s a weird thing, Sean,” Cruz said. “There is a herd mentality among Congressional Democrats that they obey Chuck Schumer and their only answer is ‘Sir, yes Sir.’”
As Cruz’s critics on Twitter noted, many Republicans have marched lock-step with Trump for years, despite his outrageous behavior. Cruz is a prime example.
During the campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, Trump called Cruz “Lyin’ Ted,” attacked his wife’s looks and implied that his father was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Yet, after Trump became president, Cruz became one of Trump’s staunchest defenders.
As expected, Twitter users were quick to remind Cruz of his psychopathic submission to Trump even after the former president Trump called him “Lyin’ Ted,” attacked his wife’s looks and implied that his father was somehow involved in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
I’ll just put this here without comment. https://t.co/EpAXCG49BU

If Schumer starts insulting his wife, maybe Ted Cruz will campaign for him. https://t.co/W7HEOfI48v

Sen. Ted Cruz is a stupid person’s idea of a smart person. He’s the Newt Gingrich of Rick Santorums.
Seriously, why are all the “thinkers” within the conservative movement so disingenuous and empty-headed? They play to the lowest common denominator among the country bumpkins. pic.twitter.com/9jIGqsuYCm

I'd call it Grade A trolling, but it's simple Projection. We need to find a way to project it back on them.

The man has no shame. If this isn't the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is.

It’s not irony. It’s not hypocrisy. It’s evil. It’s sociopathic. It’s gaslighting. And he knows it. And he knows no one is doing anything about it. His day will come though. In this life or in Hell.
