Decorated Veteran Tammy Duckworth Lays Waste to Ted Cruz over Emasculated Military Comments

Ted Cruz’s insane 2021 continued on Thursday with yet another horrific faux pas. The Texas senator mocked a new ad featuring a U.S. military member who is the child of an LGBTQ couple. Cruz noted that he preferred a propaganda video made by the Russian military.

As is usual for the bumbling Texas lawmaker, he was mocked all over the internet. But no one burned Cruz more savagely than colleague Tammy Duckworth, a decorated military veteran.

The Illinois senator shared Cruz’s tweet which he captioned, “Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea…” Duckworth wrote, “Holy crap. Perhaps a U.S. Senator shouldn’t suggest that the *Russian* military is better than the American military that protected him from an insurrection he helped foment?”

In another message, Duckworth shared a picture of female soldiers and captioned it, “Perhaps he should be thanking these badass women?”

Duckworth was just one of many veterans taking issue with Cruz’s post. Activist Charlotte Clymer responded, “You were an abled-bodied 20 year-old during the buildup to the Persian Gulf War. Did you take a few months to enlist in the Reserves? No, you finished your degree at Princeton. You were 30 on 9/11. Did you enlist? Of course not. Sweetie, you’re a coward and hypocrite. That young soldier who you claim “emasculates” our military has more guts and strength of character on her worst day than you’ve ever had at your best.”
