As Hurricane Harvey continues to wreck havoc in Texas (see Texas Governor Greg Abbott Praises Trump’s Response to Hurricane Harvey and MSNBC Uses Hurricane Harvey to Question Gov. Abbott On… Illegal Immigrants), the talking point of the day for the left is, “but what about when Ted Cruz voted against funding.” Here, let Ted Cruz explain.
Don’t look at me like that. The Senator is a Princess Bride fan, and would appreciate it.
MSNBC: Sen. Cruz, here are some lies, virtue signalling, and Democrat talking points about your vote against Hurricane Sandy funding. How do you plead?
TED CRUZ: “The accurate thing to say is that I and others enthusiastically and emphatically supported hurricane relief. The problem with that particular bill was that it turned into a $50 billion bill that was filled with unrelated pork. Two-thirds of that bill had nothing to do with Sandy,” Cruz asserted. “It’s not right for politicians to exploit a disaster…to pay for their own political wishlist.”
Notice how Katy Tur got all flustered after Ted Cruz smashed her face with a chair? I noticed. She thought she had Ted Cruz by the short chinny-chin hairs, only for Ted Cruz to come up behind her and snap her tushie with a wet towel. GOTCHA. The MSNBC popinjay moved on from the Sandy lecture as quickly as Hillary Clinton moved on from Benghazi.
Here’s an idea. Maybe the media and the politicians – ESPECIALLY those in New York with a dire need of getting over themselves – should be angrier at politicians who want to spend money on themselves that could have gone to the families who lost everything. You know, exactly what Ted Cruz said with face-wrecking tones.
Also, don’t try to outsmart Ted Cruz. But if you do, please do it on national television for all of us to see. Please, thanks, and have a stellar-licious day.
