U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is saying Beto O’Rourke isn’t Texan enough for Texas voters, that the state needs someone in the U.S. Senate who is as “tough as Texas.”
Cruz is the guy?
Get a load of this short video.
An actor, Sonny Carl Davis, says this: “If somebody called my wife a dog and said my daddy was in on the Kennedy assassination, I wouldn’t be kissing their ass. You stick a finger in their chest and give ’em a few choice words. Or you drag their ass out by he woodshed and kick their ass, Ted. Come on, Ted.”
Ted is as tough as Texas? Hmm. Hardly.
Donald Trump called him “Lyin’ Ted” and said Cruz’s father was seen talking to Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before Oswald murdered President Kennedy. And then we have that ghastly Twitter message that Trump sent out regarding Heidi Cruz.
It all enraged Sen. Cruz in the moment, when he and Trump were competing for the Republican Party presidential primary nomination.
Then Trump won. He got elected president and Cruz has become one of Trump’s staunchest political allies.
That’s not very “tough as Texas,” Sen. Cruz.
Now the senator is in the fight of his political life against O’Rourke, the Democratic challenger from El Paso.
I guess maybe I ought to add that O’Rourke was born in El Paso; Cruz was born in … um … Canada.
