Maybe he needs to switch to decaf or get some therapy for anger management, but Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) quite clearly needs to do something about the way he behaved at a press conference this week.
Along with several other GOP senators, Cruz was about to start the presser when a reporter asked why he and the others weren’t wearing protective masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
But the reporter might just as well have asked Cruz if he would admit that he’s the notorious Zodiac Killer, according to Mediaite:
Cruz noted that “as far as I know, everyone here has been vaccinated, has been double vaccinated, been boosted.”
And Cruz was just getting warmed up, quickly adding (along with wild hand and arm gesticulations):
“Just once, I’d like to see you say to Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, when she stands,” continued Cruz, who slammed both of his hounds on the podium, “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,” said Cruz.
The American people also see a wild man who is losing what’s left of his mind right in front of us.
It’s fine to say you don’t appreciate the hypocrisy, but it needs to be pointed out that President Biden always shows up to a speech, press conference, or other event wearing a mask, then removes it before he speaks. Cruz, on the other hand, showed up sans mask and tried to make a false equivalency that only served to make him look like the crazy guy at work everyone avoids out of fear he might blow a gasket and start taking hostages.
How deranged is Ted Cruz? He still believes he’ll be president one day. He won’t, and his unhinged ranting about masks is evidence of why.
