Dancing Around The Truth, Ted Cruz Can’t Admit A Mistake And Move On

Ideally, when you make a mistake, you admit your error, correct it, and if appropriate, take a lesson from it to try not to make the same error again, and move on. If, however, the mistake was made in a partisan political effort to divide and attack, and if you can’t stand getting called out on being wrong, and if you also happen to be Senator Ted Cruz, then perhaps instead you first try to hide your mistake, then double-down on it.

Cruz is being torn apart on Twitter for a tweet in which he accused Democrats in Washington State of enacting new rules that forbid citizens to dance on New Year’s eve — missing entirely that the snippet of screenshot he was using as evidence was from another continent altogether, and not, as he indicated, the state of Washington.

Though he deleted the tweet, it’s been immortalized in screenshots, and even his fellow Republican legislator, Adam Kinzinger, has called him out, saying this should emphasize the necessity of researching before tweeting.

As you can see, the original tweet came from far-right British YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson, and is a screenshot from an online conversation in which “WA Government” explains that masks are not required at private residences, but that dancing isn’t allowed.

Cruz retweeted it, attacking “Blue-state Dems” in the state of Washington. One problem — it takes minimal effort to look up the social media page in question, and learn that it pertains to Western Australia, not Washington, U.S.

The tweet has been deleted, but that didn’t stop Cruz from doubling down with a tweet referencing Footloose — a 1980s movie about a small town where the conservative government has banned rock music and dancing.

“This New Year’s put on your dancing shoes,” Cruz suggested, never admitting that Americans have not been told they can’t do so.
