[COMMENTARY] AOC and Ted Cruz Battling on Twitter


Senator Ted Cruz released a weak tweet on Thursday containing his statement regarding the violent events that took place in the Capitol on Wednesday. Cruz, one of the architects of the Electoral College vote protest, conveniently overlooking his role in the insurrection as a supporter of both Donald Trump and his MAGA minions. Cruz tweeted an explanation for his sedition just before the events occurred, saying “My colleagues and I are taking a stand to protect the integrity of our democratic process & the integrity of the election by calling for an Electoral Commission to conduct an emergency audit that examines serious allegations of voter fraud.”

By nightfall, Cruz was desperately trying to walk back his involvement, tweeting a full statement, making excuses and taking no responsibility for his part in enabling Trump and his base over the last four years.

Cruz tweeted his statement just before midnight Eastern Time, prefacing it by saying, “The attack at the Capitol was a despicable act of terrorism and a shocking assault on our democratic system. We must come together and put this anger and division behind us. We must, and I am confident we will, have a peaceful and orderly transition of power.”

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was one of many Twitter users who jumped on Cruz, who usually ignores negative criticisms on the platform. But AOC is a trigger for all MAGA men, and he just couldn’t help responding with a ridiculous and condescending tweet of his own.

Cruz used his personal account instead of his government account to respond.

It was pretty clear on which side Twitter fell on this particular argument.

And of course, there’s this reminder as to whom is really at fault.


As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called for Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office, the Senate should impeach and expel every member of the GOP who enabled him, starting with Ted Cruz.
