Senator Ted Cruz ripped Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on social media Tuesday after the far-left Representative blamed Republicans for holding-up any potential CoVID relief package for American workers.
“People across the country are going hungry, COVID is set to explode, and Mitch McConnell dismissed the Senate last week,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tweeted Monday. “I don’t know how these people can sleep at night. I really don’t.”
“Why is your party filibustering $500 billion in COVID relief?” the Texas Republican asked. “And Joe Biden is cheering them on. Thinking that blocking relief somehow helps Dems win Georgia.”
“The House doesn’t have filibusters, @tedcruz,” she fired back. “We also passed several COVID relief packages to the Senate that not only include >$500 billion, but also prioritize helping real people as opposed to Wall St bailouts the GOP tries to pass off as ‘relief.’ Nice try though.”
Cruz replied: “AOC seems not to know there are Democrats in the Senate. Or that Joe Biden (also a Dem) is publicly calling on Senate Dems to continue filibustering COVID relief because he thinks it will help them win Georgia.”

CRUZ MISSILE: Ted Cruz Rips CNN’s Brian Stelter, Asks if His Network ‘Only Exists to Attack the GOP’
Senator Ted Cruz ripped CNN host Brian Stelter on social media Monday; asking the anchor if his network only exists “to attack” Republicans and supporters of President Trump.
“I RT’ed a former LA Times reporter who had tweeted pics that mistakenly ran on the ABC local news broadcast. When I found out the story was erroneous, I deleted the tweet. Gosh, Brian, why does your tweet omit the MSM error that started it? Or does CNN only exist to attack GOP?” posted Cruz on Twitter.

President Trump called-out CNN correspondent Jim Acosta during a fiery press briefing over the weekend; saying his daily conferences are the “saddest he’s ever had to give” because “we’re talking about death.”
“We built 20,000 hospital beds. We have enough hospital beds… A lot of this is fake news. The Governors have said it’s been unbelievable what’s happening. We’ve been totally responsive,” said the President. “These people have done an incredible job. This is not happy talk. We’re talking about death, we’re talking about closing off the greatest economy on earth.”
“Thousands of people have died. There’s nothing happy about it. This is sad talk. These are the saddest news conferences I’ve ever had. I don’t like doing them because I’m talking about death,” he added.

CRUZ MISSILE: Ted Cruz RIPS Dems’ Impeachment Argument, Says Schiff Simply ‘Banging the Table’
Texas Senator Ted Cruz ripped the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment charade at the US Capitol this week; saying Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler are simply “banging the table” because they don’t have facts.
“If you have the facts, you bang the facts. If you have the law, you bang the law. If you don’t have either, you bang the table. Today, we’ve seen a whole lot of table banging,” Cruz told reporters.
The Senate officially approved Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s impeachment rules after more than 12 hours of debate late Tuesday night; setting the stage for the third trial of a sitting Commander-in-Chief in US history.
“A marathon, 12-hour first day in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trump erupted into a shouting match well after midnight Wednesday morning, as Trump’s legal team unloaded on Democratic impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y. — in an exchange that prompted a bleary-eyed Chief Justice John Roberts to sternly admonish both sides for misconduct in the chamber,” reports Fox News.
“McConnell’s rules, which were eventually adopted in a 53-47 party-line vote at 1:40 a.m. ET Wednesday and largely mirror those from the Bill Clinton impeachment trial in 1999, permit new witnesses and documents to be considered only later on in the proceedings, after opening arguments are made,” adds Fox.
The Democrat impeachment ‘Managers’ slammed the procedures as “embarrassing.”
“It’s embarrassing,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler said. “The president is on trial in the Senate, but the Senate is on trial in the eyes of the American people. Will you vote to allow all the relevant evidence to be presented here? Or will you betray your pledge to be an impartial juror? … Will you bring Ambassador Bolton here? Will you permit us to present you with the entire record of the president’s misconduct? Or will you instead choose to be complicit in the president’s coverup? So far I’m sad to say I see a lot of senators voting for a coverup, voting to deny witnesses, an absolutely indefensible vote, obviously a treacherous vote.”
