Ted Cruz did not have a good time in 2021. The year began with the Texas senator backing Donald Trump’s election lie and helping to incite an insurrection. Cruz also fled Texas during a winter storm disaster, opting instead for a tropical vacation. And the senator’s daughter admitted on TikTok that she doesn’t really agree with anything he says.
But Cruz may be looking to top himself in 2022. During an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show this week, he pathetically groveled for forgiveness for calling the 1/6 insurrection a terrorist attack. MeidasTouch documented the cowardice with 3 viral videos on Friday.
The first video documented the several times Cruz had called the insurrection a terrorist attack. When he spoke with Carlson, he claimed he had misspoke:
The second video documents how the rioters treated police officers, including where he said that one of the officers was murdered.
The third clip intersperses Cruz’s comments with actual footage of the terrorists storming the Capitol and assaulting police officers.
