Ted Cruz isn’t really that stupid … is he?
The Republican U.S. senator from Texas today said that Xavier Becerra, President Biden’s nominee to become health and human services secretary is unqualified for the job.
Why? Because he is not a physician. That’s what Cruz said.
Well. How did Cruz vote on the nomination of Alex Azar to lead HHS during the Trump administration? He voted “for” Azar. Is Azar a doctor? Nope. He isn’t.
So, what the hell is going on inside Cruz’s vacuous noggin? I think he’s lost his mind.
It might be that his aborted vacation to Cancun in the midst of the Texas winter storm has rattled the Cruz Missile.
Xavier Becerra is as qualified as anyone who has served in that Cabinet post. He serves as California attorney general and as a member of the House from California, played a major role in crafting the Affordable Care Act, which Cruz and other GOP lawmakers have tried to kill.
Good grief! I am therefore going to conclude that Sen. Ted Cruz really is that stupid.
