Ted Cruz Gets Trolled by Tedcruz.com

Earlier today, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz became the first major candidate to officially announce he’s making a run for the presidency.

The Texas senator announced his bid via Twitter.

It is likely a move to show young voters that he’s got plenty of Internet savvy.

Cruz also launched his official campaign website, tedcruz.org.

What should have been a celebratory day for the Senator was soon overshadowed by a HUGE rookie mistake: someone on his team didn’t secure the domain tedcruz.com. The owner of that domain, an Arizona attorney who shares the same name, decided to troll the senator after his big announcement with a pro-Obama and pro-immigration reform splash page.

Tedcruz.com now displays this message:

Ted Cruz and Seth Rogen Are Currently In the Twitter Feud to End All Twitter Feuds

You may be familiar with the actor Seth Rogen, the burly comedian who has starred in hit films like “Knocked Up” and “Neighbors”. Well, it appears that Rogen is about the only person in the world who is able to get under Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s skin.

Since last Wednesday, the two Canadians have been embattled in an expletive-filled, eyebrow-raising Twitter feud.

It all started when Ted Cruz tweeted a criticism of the brand new Biden administration, saying because President Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement, he’s “more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh”.

To which Seth Rogen eloquently responded: “F–k off you fascist.”

Normally, bigtime lawmakers ignore the public criticisms of celebrities, but this time, Senator Cruz couldn’t help but take the bait. He screenshotted Rogen’s response and commented about it on his Twitter account.

“Charming, civil, educated response,” Sen. Cruz said. “If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing…not so much.”

At this point, Rogen took the time to respond: “If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your wife ugly, Ted Cruz is the exact motherfucker for you.” He then added later: “Also I’m in four unions.”

And the debacle just got more intense from there. Cruz responded by calling Rogen a “moron” and saying that the Democratic party believes in the government power to “shut your business, to oppress your faith & to censor your speech.” And added: “Anyone who disagrees, they try to cancel.”

The plot got even thicker, with Rogen doubling down on his claims, this time calling Sen. Cruz a “fascist piece of s–t” with the topper: “Your lies got people killed. You have blood on your hands.”

And in the most bizarre turn of events, the so-called feud (a label that Rogen takes exception to) took an odd detour when the two men began to argue about…Disney’s “Fantasia”?

In an unrelated tweet, Cruz told his Twitter followers that the first film he saw in theatres was “Fantasia”, to which Rogen responded: “Everyone who made that film would hate you.” (Okay, you had to have laughed a little bit, right??)

Ever the one to get the last word in (and apparently having nothing better to do than argue with an actor on the internet?), Sen. Cruz tweeted out: “They’re all dead. So I think we’re good. And Walt Disney was a Republican. Even though you behave online like a Marxist with Tourette’s (screaming “F U! F U!” is really, really clever), your movies are typically pretty funny. I’m sure you hate that I enjoy them.”

To which Rogen revealed that he actually does, indeed, have a mild form of Tourette’s syndrome that just causes twitching, not swearing (plot twist?)

He also chastised Cruz for making light of the syndrome that afflicts many people–including people in Rogen’s family.

And of course, a public Twitter spat wouldn’t be a public Twitter spat without other bloodthirsty spectators jumping into the fray.

Like failed Pennsylvania congressional candidate Dean Browning, who tried to burn Rogen by asking why a “Canadian is so deeply obsessed with American men like @TedCruz”. The “obvious explanation” being that “#SethRogenLovesTedCruz”. Because homophobic jokes are so clever.

Seth Rogen took this as the perfect opportunity to educate Mr. Browning on the little-known birthplace of Senator Cruz. He tweeted: “Ted Cruz is Canadian you stupid f–k.” Well said.

To read the entire, sprawling Twitter exchange, head over to Seth Rogen’s Twitter account. You won’t be disappointed.

Sen. Joe Manchin Calls On Senate To Expel Sen. Ted Cruz After Insurrection

Update January 21, 2021

Americans won’t soon forget the violent mob that stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Politicians on both sides of the aisle and American citizens have called for those responsible to be held accountable. That includes Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, who has been blamed for encouraging the insurrection.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., is calling on the Senate to expel Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Sen. Manchin is a Democrat from West Virginia and holds a lot of power in the newly split Senate. Democrats picked up two Senate seats with Sen. Jon Ossoff and Sen. Raphael Warnock winning runoff elections on Jan. 5. Sen. Manchin is a notoriously moderate Democrat representing a very red state setting him up to be the most important vote in the current Senate. He is the latest politician to call on Sen. Ted Cruz’s expulsion from the Senate after Jan. 6.

“That should be a consideration,” Sen. Manchin said about the 14th Amendment being used to oust the Texas senator. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”

“No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any state, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any state legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any state, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof,” reads Section 3 of the 14th Amendment. “But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”

Original: Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was one of the most outspoken politicians pushing conspiracy theories that the election was stolen. Video of Sen. Cruz talking to a crowd about defending liberty is going viral as members of Congress and constituents call for him to resign.

Sen. Ted Cruz is facing calls to resign as some accuse him of inciting the deadly Capitol Hill riots.

Sen. Ted Cruz has been a loyal supporter of President Trump since losing to him in the 2016 primaries. Sen. Cruz has voted in President Trump’s favor over the years and was one of the loudest voices casting doubt on the fair 2020 elections.

The above video is from a campaign rally in Georgia, just days before the surreal scenes of Trump supporters invading the Capitol. Many are pointing to his rhetoric as inciting and promoting what happened.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is one member of Congress calling out Sen. Cruz.

Sen. Cruz, along with Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., are facing relentless calls to resign from constituents, colleagues, and political pundits. People are horrified with the attack on the democratic system Jan. 6 and see these two senators are the most culpable. The two Republican senators are even facing these calls from other Republicans.

“Some senators, for political gain, misled supporters about their ability to challenge the election results — some even sent out fundraising emails while insurrectionists stormed the Capitol,” Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., tweeted Thursday echoing the claim that Sen. Cruz used the terrifying riot to fundraise. “That stops now — Republicans ought to focus on countering the Democrats’ radical agenda.”

Sen. Cruz tried pushing back and calling Rep. AOC a liar but, receipts.

A growing coalition of bipartisan senators and congresspeople are calling for the resignation or expulsion of Sen. Cruz and Sen. Hawley. The calls are being echoed by major newspapers and Americans who witnessed the mob breaching Capitol Hill. Both the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and The Kansas City Star are calling for Sen. Hawley to resign.
