Ted Cruz’s absurd 2021 continued with a Sunday tweet that insulted many Mothers around the country.
Rather than wishing all Mom’s a Happy Mother’s on Sunday the senator decided to make an anti-trans post. Cruz posted a message that read Happy Birthing Day.
Of course, Cruz meant to point out that fact that only biological women can bear children. But there are also plenty of Mothers out there that didn’t birth their own children.
The message drew immediate condemnation from the Twitter Universe. Many users pointed out that Cruz was ignoring those women who have step-children. The Texas lawmaker also ignored people who choose to adopt children.
The post was also insulting to women who are unable to bear children. Once again, Cruz was called out for being completely out of touch with reality.
User Greg Flynn responded, “I can’t tell if this is a transphobic thing or he hates stepmoms and foster mom’s and just female role models in general or if he just hates women in general omg that’s probably it he hates women.”

The message was a good example of Cruz’s continued obsession with the culture war. In order to shine the light away from his role in the January 6th insurrection and other bad policy, the Texas senator continues to focus on things that just don’t matter.
