Sneaky TMZ ,with their sad little camera, cornered Senator Ted Cruz in a hallway. TMZ made a couple of mistakes. Firstly, they didn’t burn every edition of their gossip magazine. Secondly, they tried to “corner” Ted Cruz.
The question: “What say does Hollywood have in gun violence?” His answer:
Now Hollywood does glorify violence, and I’ve got to say I wish we had a little bit less of that, but the truth of the matter is when Hollywood celebrities engage on issues they’re almost inevitably reflecting enormous hypocrisy. Because a lot of these movie stars, they have armed security traveling with them, so they’re perfectly happy to say “Yeah, yeah, my armed security, he can keep me safe, but don’t let a law-abiding citizen.”
The Second Amendment is about a single mom living in a tough neighborhood with a crack house down the street being able to defend herself and defend her kids.
The kindness of Cruz was astounding. He really cares about both the American people and the young interviewer. Giggles are generated with TMZ’s write-up on the interview. They gave a short summary of what Cruz said, listing his points. Then they ended the article with:
Cruz got a few of the facts wrong, but he’s making his point, loud and clear here.
We thought there would be more to the article. So we scrolled. For two days. Nothing. We never found the facts Cruz got wrong. Or the writer’s dignity. TMZ reiterated Cruz’s point and then ended the article doubting Cruz. They didn’t even try refuting him. Given, refutation is hard for writers who have CNN as a source.
The TMZ writer unwillingly made the same conclusion as Cruz. Celebrities and other unqualified persons shouldn’t give their half a penny on “gun control.” The left is touting the opinions of the Florida Shooting survivors as completely dependable. Children who just experienced major trauma. Along with the children, progressives uphold celebrities’ opinions. Then journalists’, and so on.
Gun control is all about virtue signaling, not the rights and lives of every American. Rights which leftists can’t wrap their gastric banded brains around.
