    1. @60 grit So you’re saying the excerpts Cruz used in this little stunt didn’t actually happen? Williams is making them up?

    1. @CoolMan Caravan well if you check his ticket arrangement and subsequent changes, your defense of Snooze Cruz quickly melts away.(Verified by the airlines) .
      As far as Ted not being able to “Do anything” AOC raised over 4 million dollars for people in need in Texas. A state she neither resides, or represents. So he could done SOMETHING. (insert eye roll here) Thankfully there are people out there to do things that “Aren’t their job”

  1. “Don’t expose him to light especially sunlight’ Don’t get him wet and whatever you do above all else Don’t feed him after midnight.
    Ancient Chinese Secret.

    1. @Curtis McFeron Yes,a vegetable did it and the same vegetable is so stupid he doesn’t think the extra money causes ppl to stay unemployed. Veggie Bidens brain is fried.

    2. @Caddy Dad just to let you know, you are a genius and I am spreading your message around YouTube and I now shall start giving you the accolades that you deserve

    3. @Caddy Dad you need to go to the Joy Reid show on YouTube to where I have already backed you up.

    4. @David Eby So, you’re unemployed I take it. Or did you return your check out of principle?

  2. “Remember as you watch this just how much Ted Cruz dreams of being president of a country someday, perhaps not this country… ” it’s The Shade for me.

    1. @Eddie martinez You’re right. I don’t understand how they caught him actually withholding aid to Puerto Rico and then nothing else is said. He’s been caught for so much crap but where’s the charges?

  3. He’s going down the Russian Election plea for help! “Russia, if you’re out there”…. TC: “ HELP!!!”

    1. If trump isn’t in the running in 2024, Vlad has a bounty of seditious Republicans to pick from as a replacement.

    1. well I have to be honest , the Russian ad was great and I support good relations between Russia and the USA but I like the USA ad better , its more appealing to the younger generation so I definitely like the American ad better , they did a great job with the ad , I don’t support the US government but I liked the ad , the Russian ad was nice but I personally like the US ad , its more appealing and its got a interesting and different storyline

  4. A lapse of judgement is when you make 1 or 2 mistakes…. Cruz, continues to have “lapse of judgement”s… This is who is is, its not a lapse.

    1. well I have to be honest , the Russian ad was great and I support good relations between Russia and the USA but I like the USA ad better , its more appealing to the younger generation so I definitely like the American ad better , they did a great job with the ad , I don’t support the US government but I liked the ad , the Russian ad was nice but I personally like the US ad , its more appealing and its got a interesting and different storyline

    2. @joanna ludwig As Nana said, “Too clever by half.” You will cry when AOC becomes Senator!
      I thought the Dems are the ones who think with their emotions! Guess not, you bigoted sucker

    1. @Aaron De Anda How about staying & helping his State in a time of need! You didn’t see Beto etc, running away from the disaster!

    2. @Aaron De Anda Hahaha probably something like what AOC did. She is a self promoter, but at least she has the common sense to rally support for people in need.

    1. @John B You’re joking, right? Your party literally tried to overthrow the US government. We’re watching the republican party try to defend not opening an investigation into the worst act of treason in US history, of which many of the same republican party were involved in inciting, and it’s the democrat party that is imploding? Are you high? Or just a treasonous moron?

    2. @John B
      Love it when you Repukes post your irrelevant uninformed fantasies, flouncing around in your ignorance, completely unaware that you have no clothes.

    3. @deltavee2 I can understand the confusion because we call those truth and facts. Maybe if you surrounded yourself with either one of those, you may not get that feeling when it happens. Thanks for stoppin by though Karen

    4. @John B
      Confusion? XD
      Nice try at trying to interject something totally unrelated at the start of your reply. Donnie’s taught you well. Unfortunately it doesn’t work on people with that aren’t part of the Chump’s Zombie Squad.
      Are you referring to Rep~ “alternate facts” maybe? It’s either that or comic books I would think.

      Keep on trollin’ Johnnie Boy.
      You’re amusing.

  5. He should have posted that picture of his shirtless friend atop the horse with a follow up of him swooning over it like his buddies over at fox and friends. That was grotesque.

    1. well I have to be honest , the Russian ad was great and I support good relations between Russia and the USA but I like the USA ad better , its more appealing to the younger generation so I definitely like the American ad better , they did a great job with the ad , I don’t support the US government but I liked the ad , the Russian ad was nice but I personally like the US ad , its more appealing and its got a interesting and different storyline

  6. “Here’s the thing you have to understand about Ted Cruz, I like Ted Cruz more than most of my other colleagues like Ted Cruz. And I f^cking hate Ted Cruz.” – Al Franken

    1. @Insignificant360 i never said “on.” i said “over” and the camera angle was straight forward on them. Its clear as day in He was insinuating for a joke. Im not disagreeing with that. But i think if the joke involves a womans breasts or any sexes genitalia, they should be willing participants. She was not. And its not like it was her arm or leg he insinuated grabbing. It was her breasts. Call it what you will. But dont sugar coat the reality of the image.

    2. @MrSynyster182 And the point I was making, that a tacky joke is worth an expulsion but somehow supporting a lie about election fraud that led to an insurrection isn’t. So you do think the consequences for each were appropriate.

    3. ​@MrSynyster182 , Franken didn’t sugar-coat it or deny it, admitted he was wrong, apologized & resigned. Sometimes a person’s foolish behavior can be forgiven, sometimes it can’t. I don’t recall hearing that the woman ever spoke out about it. Of course, she’s the only one entitled to forgive him for that indiscretion, but a lot of people still believe he was a diligent congressman who took the job seriously, which is more than can be said for many who are still there.

  7. At this point, the GOPs only goal is to troll the left, accomplish nothing, and pat themselves on the back for it.

  8. “….Went to Harvard and briefly Cancun!” More shade than those luxury cabanas he loves so much!

  9. My grandfather always told me you can’t ever trust a man who changes his name to stand out. That person is Ted Cruz.
