11 Times Ted Cruz Proved to be a Bigger Asshole than Donald Trump

Many of us worry about everything that Donald Trump has said because there exists a possibility that he might become our president. However, we should ALSO pay attention to all the crazy things Ted Cruz has said, because he may just be a bigger asshole than Trump. Like when he said all these things…

1. “I didn’t threaten to shut down the government.”

After he insisted on a government shutdown in objection of the Planned Parenthood federal funding. Luckily, Congress ignored the guy and funded the government to stay open.

2. “It [gay marriage] gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages.”

Yep, and there’s more. During an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), Cruz continued “if you look at other nations that have gone down the road towards gay marriage, that’s the next step of where it gets enforced. It gets enforced against Christian pastors who decline to perform gay marriages, who speak out and preach biblical truths on marriage, that has been defined elsewhere as hate speech, as inconsistent with the enlightened view of government.”

3. “You always have to worry about something that is a so-called scientific theory that fits every scenario.”

That’s Teddy’s take on climate change. Has he been living under a rock?

4. “Federal government has no business sticking its nose in education. We need to repeal every word of Common Core!”

In case others like Ted Cruz don’t understand what Common Core is, it cannot be “repealed.”

5. “If I’m never seen again, please send a search and rescue team. I very much hope by tomorrow morning I don’t wake up amidst the Syrian rebels.”

This was Ted Cruz on Obama’s alleged plan to kidnap him during a meeting at the White House. Dad joke gone wrong or just plain stupid?

6. “‘Net neutrality’ is Obamacare for the Internet.”

Cruz proclaimed that after Obama said he supported net neutrality, which means you have access to anything and everything online without government censorship. Clearly, good ol’ Ted didn’t know what it meant.

7. “I am a very, very proud wacko bird.”

On Obama’s nomination of Vivek Murthy, who’s anti-gun, for Surgeon General. But what’s wrong with that?

9. “Green Eggs and Ham.”

Ted read “Green Eggs and Ham,” his daughter’s favorite bedtime story during his “filibuster” of the affordable care act AND claimed his dad came up with the book. Say what?!

10. “Twenty years from now if there is some obscure trivial pursuit question, I am confident I will be the answer.”

No comment.

11. “You don’t need a punchline. You just say his name, people laugh.”

Ted said while describing Vice President Joe Biden, but that’s funny because it also happens when people say “Ted Cruz.”

Daisy Ridley Claps Back at Ted Cruz After He Subtly Insulted Her ‘Star Wars’ Character

It seems like Ted Cruz can’t stay away from the spotlight. On the heels of a very public* scandal, Cruz is now drumming up some more controversy for himself. But now he’s inserting himself into some pre-existing drama.

This time, Rafael Cruz decided to share his opinion on a recent dispute in the Star Wars universe. Yes, you read that right.

Ted Cruz–who has had his fair share of celebrity feuds— decided to pick a fight with Star Wars actress, Daisy Ridley.

The drama started when Cruz tweeted about the ongoing conflict between Disney and “The Mandalorian” actress, Gina Carano.

As background, Disney fired Carano from the hit show after she shared various controversial, far-right opinions on social media. Her posts included anti-mask rhetoric, Q-Anon conspiracies, and promoting false election fraud rumors. Oh, and she also compared being a conservative in Hollywood to being a Jew in Nazi Germany.

Since Carano’s firing, many conservative figures have publicly come to her defense. One of them being Ted Cruz.

Recently, Rafael tweeted out: “Texan Gina Carano broke barriers in the Star Wars universe: not a princess, not a victim, not some emotionally tortured Jedi. She played a woman who kicked ass & who girls looked up to. She was instrumental in making Star Wars fun again. Of course Disney canceled her.”

For those who aren’t well versed in the Star Wars universe, Cruz’s tweet seemed to be throwing subtle shade at the character of Rey–a female Jedi in the most recent Star Wars trilogy. Sure, you could call Rey “emotionally tortured”…or you could call her a normal person who expresses normal feelings. *Shrug*

Anyway, Daisy Ridley–the actress who played Rey–soon caught wind of the diss when an interviewer brought it to her attention.

The interviewer than asked if Ridley had any response to her character being classified as an “emotionally tortured Jedi”.At first, Ridley seemed visibly surprised that Cruz shaded her character. But she quickly regained her composure–as well as her wit.

“I am very happy to be an emotionally tortured Jedi who doesn’t leave their state when it’s having a terrible time,” she quipped.

Looks like Cruz had to learn the hard way not to mess with the Force.

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

Sen. Ted Cruz has reached peak infamy with a piñata in his honor. People have been turned into piñatas over the years for both good and bad reasons. The Cruz piñata serves as a reminder of the senator’s attempt to flee the brutal Texas winter crisis.

A Texas party store is selling piñatas of Sen. Ted Cruz and people are into it.

Piñatas are always the centerpiece of a fun party and they are even more exciting when they are topical. One party shop in Texas is riding on the wave of local and national news criticizing Sen. Cruz to cash in.

Last week Sen. Cruz was caught boarding a United flight to Cancún, Mexico to escape the winter storm devastating Texas. As millions of Texans survived without water and power, the Cruz family booked a Mexican getaway to warmer weather and reliable electricity.

At first, Sen. Cruz tried to blame his daughters for fleeing Texas as his constituents suffered from the weather. He soon changed his story and claimed that he realized he had made a mistake as soon as he sat down on the plane waiting to depart from Houston.

Finally, after days of speculation, someone came forward and leaked text messages from Sen. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Turns out, according to the texts, that the Cruz family was actively planning a vacation to avoid the snowstorm. According to the texts, the Cruz family was trying to convince neighbors and friends to join them so they can get out of their freezing house. The criticism amplified when it was reported that the Cruz family left the family dog behind as they fled to Mexico.

People are eager to get their hands on a Sen. Cruz piñata.

Families have been in quarantine for almost a year and they are hitting a wall. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it is no surprise that people would want to have something to do together outdoors. Seems that a lot of people would like a piñata party to celebrate the bad weather slowly moving out.

There are even some people asking for different people made as piñatas.

You never know unless you ask, right? Never hurts to try to make your own request to better your birthday. It seems that the party store is able to make various different piñatas. The party store made a piñata after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ famous mitten moment at President Biden’s inauguration.
