A second Texas newspaper, the San Antonio Categorical is now calling on the Senate to expel Ted Cruz for his position in stoking Wednesday’s riots together with his false story of voter fraud following the heels of the Houston Chronicle. I ought to simply give some context for viewers. Ted Cruz has by no means been a favourite on the Senate, even amongst his GOP colleagues. You’ll recall, he was buying and selling plenty of insults and was on the alternative aspect of Donald Trump throughout the marketing campaign. So this about-face that we noticed from Ted Cruz throughout the previous 4 years has been gorgeous to these of us who’ve coated politics for a very long time. So it’s fairly spectacular {that a} second newspaper is looking for Ted Cruz to be expelled from the U.S. Senate. I can not underscore the place we’re on this nation sufficient.

Cruz deciding to promote his soul to Trump most likely wasn’t the neatest play

In the course of the 2016 Republican main, Ted Cruz referred to as Donald Trump a “sniveling coward” after he attacked his spouse, Heidi Cruz. Up to now, the Texas senator has additionally referred to as Trump “completely amoral” and a “pathological liar.”

However as soon as Trump took workplace, it didn’t take lengthy for Cruz to hitch his wagon to the president and pledge his allegiance to the MAGA flag.

The Texas senator’s choice to go all in for Trump culminated this week in a violent assault carried out by MAGA insurrectionists – an assault impressed by Cruz, Trump, and different GOP lawmakers like Josh Hawley.

Ted Cruz made a guess that attaching himself on the hip with Donald Trump – even within the midst of an assault on the U.S. Capitol – would profit his future in Republican politics.

With 5 individuals lifeless and D.C. nonetheless reeling from this week’s MAGA assault, it doesn’t seem like Ted Cruz’s guess is paying off.
