Ted Cruz mocked Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at CPAC after the congresswoman raised millions for Texas

Source: MSN

Senator Ted Cruz on Friday mocked New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has raised millions for his Texas constituents, for her response to the January 6 Capitol riots.

"We are gathered in dark times," Cruz told the crowd at the CPAC in Orlando on Friday.

Cruz's CPAC address was billed as a discussion of the "Bill of Rights, Liberty, and Cancel Culture." On stage, Cruz also took aim at Senator Bernie Sanders for wearing mittens to President Joe Biden's inauguration.

He said: "We're gathered at a time where the hard left, where the socialists control the levers of government, where they control the White House, where they control every executive branch, where they control both houses of Congress. Bernie is wearing mittens, and AOC is telling us she was murdered."

Ted Cruz like many Republicans understand that Republicans are most moved if you blame a female latina. Heck, Ted Cruz even blamed his own daughter for ditching Texas during a blizzard.

1. Sooner or later, he'll make us admit what a nice guy he is.

Or not.

2. Shut the fuck up, Ted

We are at a time where GOP elected officials desert their own state's citizens in need, attempt to flee to a foreign country, and then lie about it when called out...

3. You need to add "while Ted was in Cancun" to that sentence.

AOC raised millions for Texas "while Ted was in Cancun"

14. What? Like millions of others before him,

Ted crossed the Mexican boarder to seek a better life for his wife and children.

4. He'll be there all week, right?

Maybe he should just stay there permanently. In that swamp.

If he died, I can honestly say his death wouldn’t affect me the slightest.

6. I wouldn't do a dance, but I'd feel considerably happier.

His children would probably celebrate in private.

7. Cruz is settling in at the level he was destined to rise.

The toxic effluvia of a conservative gathering.

12. I take great solace and hope in the obvious fact that Ted Cruz is becoming

increasingly Dumber. I mean in 2016, he was a viable candidate with articulate sentences. I almost thought he had a movement when he dissed Trump for 'New York values'. Now Cruz babbles in incoherencies and fourth-tier preacher rhetoric - 'dark times'. Is that a racist overtone? And he's become incredibly flabby. It's a downward spiral. Humor me, I take some small degree of pride in reading tea leaves hiding in plain sight.

Update: I guess I'm not the only one seeing it:

20. Looking at those airport pictures....


yes, Cruz is packing on the pounds. He's got a ways to go before he catches up with Dump Truck-Ass Trump, though.
If someone told Trump to haul ass, he'd have to make two trips.

21. Another big laugh!

that "Yes We Cancun" is flat-out hilarious!

Cruz is one of those people that seemingly have an endless supply of things to make of and to make jokes about.

And I don't feel the least bit mean or unkind doing this as he deserves all of our scorn and more. In fact, making fun of this yutz is relaxing and enjoyable after a long day of work!

18. He mocked Bernie, too. They've been doing this intentionally

for awhile—-tying to pass them off as the mainstream of the party because of the “socialist” after “Democratic socialist”, thereby making it easy for them to pretend Democrats are really socialists.
