Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Made Ted Cruz Instantly Regret His Condescending Tweets Questioning Her Credentials
Since her upset primary victory in the summer of 2018, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her progressive agenda have become a favorite target of the Right wing.
The party that claims to champion people who "pull themselves up by their bootstraps" often derides Ocasio-Cortez's former career as a bartender in Manhattan—a position she took after college when her father's death put her family in dire financial straits.
Ilhan Omar Listed All the Things About Her That Trigger Conservatives and Ted Cruz's Response Proved Her Point
Ever since becoming one of the first Muslim women to be elected to Congress—an honor she shares with fellow Democratic Representative Rashida Tlaib of Michigan—Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnesota found herself a favorite target of President Donald Trump, his supporters, Evangelical Christians and other assorted bigots and conspiracy theorists.
But just what is it about Omar that they love to hate?
Ted Cruz Tried to Slam Elizabeth Warren With a Crack About Spending but It Sounds Like He's Talking About Trump
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made waves on Tuesday after announcing that she'd take broad steps to cancel student loan debt for 42 million Americans on the first day of her presidency.
What's more, the former Harvard Law Professor says she doesn't need Congress to do it.
Father of Parkland Shooting Victim Slams Ted Cruz as 'Miserable Liar' After NRA Posts Video of Cruz Slandering Democrats
The National Rifle Association partnered with Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz at the start of this year to spew false and alarmist claims about Democrats.
The NRA shared a video of Cruz on Twitter falsely claiming that Democrats wanted to "take your freedom" for wanting assault weapons regulated differently than 18th century muskets.
'Meet the Press' Crew Laughs at Ted Cruz During Live Interview for Believing Ukraine Conspiracy Theory
The House of Representatives is expected to vote to impeach President Donald Trump before the end of the year, putting him on trial in the Senate in the same year he'll run for reelection.
As a result, more and more Republican Senators are going on the record to defend the President's actions.
Among them? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).
Cruz's unyielding loyalty to Trump, despite the pair's bitter rivalry during the 2016 Republican primary, confounds many to this day. Now, Cruz is repeating conspiracy theories on the President's behalf.
In an interview with Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, even the show's crew could be heard laughing at Cruz insisting that Ukraine meddled in U.S. elections.
When asked by Todd if he believed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, Cruz responded, "I do and I think there's considerable evidence." An incredulous Chuck Todd responded, "You do?"
Laughter could be heard off camera.
Cruz continued trying to make his case, but was only able to cite an op-ed from Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly. The op-ed was critical of Trump after Trump implied that Ukrainians in Crimea–which Russia illegally seized in 2014—would rather be living under Russian rule.
A single op-ed, according to Cruz, is equivalent to Russia's "multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election."
Others agreed with the Meet the Press crew that the senator's remarks were laughable.
Cruz is all but certain to vote to acquit Trump in the Senate if the President is impeached. At least it won't be without rebuke.
Ted Cruz Is Getting Mocked for Suggesting That John Bolton's Ouster Is a Result of Pro-Obama 'Deep State Forces' in the White House
President Donald Trump announced Senior National Security Advisor John Bolton's immediate departure from the Trump administration in a tweet on Tuesday morning. While Trump thanked Bolton for his service, he noted that he "disagreed strongly with many of [Bolton's] suggestions."
Thought by many to be a warmonger, Bolton championed a "maximum pressure" strategy against Iran, meaning he endorsed sanctions and threats against the country to pressure it into submission. The maximum pressure strategy hasn't worked. Like at all.
