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In case others like Ted Cruz don’t understand what Common Core is, it cannot be “repealed.”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

8. “Instead of nominating a health professional, he nominated someone who is an anti-gun activist.”

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.”

Sen. Ted Cruz Fell Asleep While President Biden Spoke About Immigration

Sen. Ted Cruz Fell Asleep While President Biden Spoke About Immigration

On Wednesday night, President Joe Biden gave a speech to the joint session of Congress. Biden’s speech covered everything from gun control, to COVID-19, to immigration reform, to his new $1.8 trillion “families plan”. But one person, in particular, didn’t seem to care about any of it. That person, of course, was Ted Cruz.

When President Joe Biden was in the middle of speaking about the current immigration crisis going on, the camera panned to Ted Cruz who appeared to be nodding off.

Joe Biden, speaking on immigration, was saying, “If you actually want to solve a problem, I’ve sent a bill to take a close look at it,” but Rafael Cruz, apparently, wasn’t awake to hear about the problem that needed to be solved. And it wouldn’t be the first time Cancún Cruz checked out when facing a crisis.

“Look, immigrants have done so much for America during this pandemic and throughout our history,” Biden continued, while Cruz was snoozing. “The country supports immigration reform. We should act. Let’s argue over it. Let’s debate over it. But let’s act.”

Twitter quickly exploded when they saw that Rafael Cruz was falling asleep. The hashtag #TedSnooze started to trend almost immediately.

“Since @tedcruz lives in Texas and Biden is talking about exactly the immigration issue he and his constituents scream about, could Ted stay awake for just a minute or two?” wrote one angry Twitter user.

“Daydreaming about being in Cancún and screwing his constituents over again,” wrote another.

But some weren’t so convinced that Cruz’s sleepiness was authentic. After all, this is a man who isn’t afraid to engage in theatrics to keep the spotlight on him. “My first & persistent thought seeing the pics: ‘That’s someone pretending to sleep to be a jerk [because] he has nothing better to offer. Troll,'” wrote one skeptical Twitter user.

Later, when he appeared on Fox News to recap Biden’s speech, Cruz wanted to make sure that the entire nation knew what he thought of Biden’s speech: boring.

“You could sum up tonight’s speech in three words: boring but radical,” he said to Sean Hannity. “The speech by design was calm and dulcet tones. I challenge you to remember a single line from the speech.”

Since then, Ted Cruz has been retweeting images of him “sleeping” during Biden’s speech like it somehow proves how “boring” Biden’s speech was. Cruz’s behavior lends credence to the theory that he was, in fact, faking his sleepiness.

Based on Sen. Ted Cruz’s past shenanigans, we wouldn’t put it past him to have pretended to fall asleep on Wednesday just to keep the headlines revolving around him. In the end, that’s what’s most important to him.

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Federal Investigators Executed A Search Warrant On Rudy Giuliani’s N.Y.C. Home And This Is Just The Beginning

Months of investigations on Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani officially came to a head Wednesday morning.

The former New York City mayor’s dealings with Ukraine officials in 2019 have been under scrutiny for months by authorities who have been investigating allegations Giuliani lobbied for powerful Ukrainian interests. The investigations have also looked into claims that Giuliani also solicited the Ukrainian government for damaging information on President Joe Biden when he was running against Trump in the 2020 election.

There is also the matter of allegations that Giuliani attempted to find information on Biden’s son Hunter, who was part of the board of an energy company in Ukraine.

Federal investigators executed a search warrant on Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan home on Wednesday morning.

The search was part of a criminal investigation into Giuliani‘s activities with Ukraine. According to The New York Times, “Prosecutors obtained the search warrants as part of an investigation into whether Mr. Giuliani broke lobbying laws as President Trump’s personal lawyer.”

Federal agents seized cellphones and other electronic devices as part of the investigation. The search warrant took place around 6 a.m. at Mr. Giuliani’s apartment on Madison Avenue and his Park Avenue office in Manhattan.

The execution of a search warrant against the former president’s lawyer is particularly shocking.

The warrant comes as a major development in the investigation that has been ongoing for some time and examines the former- mayor’s conduct during Mr. Trump’s first impeachment trial.

“It was also a remarkable moment in Mr. Giuliani’s long arc as a public figure,” noted New York Times. “As mayor, Mr. Giuliani won national recognition for steering New York through the dark days after the Sept. 11 attacks, and earlier in his career, he led the same U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan that is investigating him now, earning a reputation as a hard-charging prosecutor who took on organized crime and corrupt politicians.”
