Ted Cruz is Humiliated in Hysterical Twitter Feud with Cheney, Kinzinger, and Swalwell

The Republican Circus has more than it’s share of clowns. With people like Lauren Boebert, Matt Gaetz, Marjorie Taylor Greene, and Louis Gohmert, the laughs keep flowing like an avalanche. But despite the tough competition, Cancun Ted Cruz has managed to maintain his status among the most mockable GOP Bozos.

Ted Cruz, Cancun

On Sunday Cruz was busy watching CNN where Jake Tapper was leading a discussion about wayward Republican Liz Cheney and her prospects politically in the future. The question asked by Tapper was “Is there a lane for Liz Cheney in New Hampshire in 2024?”

It was during that segment that inspiration struck Cruz and he was compelled to express his comedic genius in a tweet answering Tapper’s question. “Yes,” Cruz quipped, “It’s called the Democratic primary.”

Have you stopped laughing yet? Cruz’s heckling is supposed to be funny because Cheney has had the courage to criticize Donald Trump and hold him accountable for his criminal behavior. That’s the sort of fortitude that has escaped Cruz for the pat five years. Cruz has been a devoted Trump-fluffer even after Trump insulted his wife as ugly and accused his father of assassinating JFK. And apparently Cruz is unfamiliar with Cheney’s 96% conservative congressional voting record, according to the ultra-conservative Heritage Foundation. So, yeah, she’d be right at home in the Democratic Party.

However, that isn’t where the entertainment ends. Cruz then engaged in a Twitter war with Cheney, GOP Rep. Adam Kinzinger, and Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell. It began with Cheney responding to Cruz’s tweet (which you can follow back from here):

Cheney: I know you’re posturing for the secessionist vote, Ted. But my party, the Republican party, saved the Union. You swore an oath to the Constitution. Act like it.
Kinzinger: Damn son, Liz brought the heat on you!
Cruz: These two need to hurry up and get their bottom-rated @msnbc show.
Kinzinger: Senator, you’ve been given a huge position to lead and tell people truth. Yet you have squandered it on lies and abused the patriotism of those who trusted you. I will have zero regrets… will you?
Swalwell: Adam, if you want @tedcruz’s support you’re going to have to attack his wife.

Indeed, Cruz did suggest the possibility of Texas seceding from the U.S. (which it cannot legally do) if Democrats continued to rack up legislative successes that actually improved the lives of the American people. As opposed to the carping by Republican sore losers who have nothing to offer but bitterness and threats of violence.

However, Swalwell takes the Gold for Shade Throwing with his sly observation on how best to get Cruz’s support. And it seems to have silenced Cruz, at least temporarily. But don’t get excited. He will surely recover and be back to form with more of his guffaw inducing witticism. Until then you can substitute the feeling you get from the humor he provides by chewing on broken glass.

GOP Rep Calls It By Its Name on Fox News: ‘A Trump-Inspired Insurrection on the Capitol’

On this Sunday morning truth got a twofer. It’s rare that honesty ever creeps into a story on Fox News. and it’s even more rare when the truth-teller is a Republican member of Congress. However, that political oddity occurred when the subject of the January 6th MAGA riots in Washington, D.C. came up during this week’s Fox News Sunday.

Donald Trump Insurrection

Chris Wallace interviewed Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been a frequent critic of his party confederates for sucking up to Donald Trump and promulgating the “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was “stolen” from him. Kinzinger unleashed a flurry of honesty that is not often seen in Republicans, and almost never on Fox News (video below):

“The American people deserve the truth, and my party to this point has said things like it was hugs and kisses. It was Antifa and BLM. It was anything but what it was, which was a Trump-inspired insurrection on the Capitol. And I think now what’s gonna happen if this thing fails is that Nancy Pelosi will run a Select Committee and this could go all the way until 2024.”

That commentary is poles apart from anything that most of the GOP StormTrumpers are saying. McCarthy himself has tread on the surreal by insisting that “I don’t think anybody is questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election.” Somebody should introduce McCarthy to the former reality TV game show host who is pathologically obsessed with it.

During the segment the subject of the Democratic initiative to impanel an independent, bipartisan committee came up. The purpose of the committee would be to investigate the circumstances that led to the January 6th riots. Wallace asked Kinzinger whether the objections to the committee by House minority leader, Kevin McCarthy, were a conflict of interest since he was likely to be called as a witness. Kinzinger replied…

“I wouldn’t say it’s a conflict of interest because Kevin is the leader. There is probably a lot of people that are gonna be subject to be called in front of any investigation on this. Even criminal investigations.

But I do think Kevin has failed to tell the truth to the Republicans and to the American people. […] The 74 million voters who voted for Donald Trump, a number of them believe that the election was stolen, believe it because their leaders have not told them otherwise. The people they trust have either been silent or not told them the truth.”

Kinzinger added that McCarthy’s positions have been strikingly hypocritical. He pointed out that McCarthy originally criticized Trump for failing to call off his insurrectionists. On the House floor McCarthy said that “The president bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding.” But instead, Trump told the rioters that he loved them. And shortly thereafter McCarthy made the pilgrimage to Mar-a-Lago to kiss Dear Leader’s… let’s just say ring.

Now McCarthy refuses to even answer questions about whether his caucus members were in communication with the rioters during the assault. That’s how most of the GOP has fallen in line behind Trump. Which makes Kinzinger’s contrary position all the more courageous.
