Since the day he joined the United States Senate in 2013, Ted Cruz has been wildly unpopular among his peers. And that doesn’t just go for Democrats, and Conservatives don’t seem to like him either. John McCain called him a “wacko bird,” and Former Speaker of the House John Boehner referred to him as Lucifer in the Flesh.
On Tuesday, Ted Cruz tried to argue that Joe Biden wasn’t actually in charge of the government. The reason why; because the two men haven’t spoken since Biden has been in office.
Cruz told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling, “You know the question you just asked Eric, I get asked that almost every day. Somebody says, ‘who’s really running things?’ And let me tell you the scary thing, I have no idea. So Bidens been President, what, 15 months? In that entire time, I have not spoken with him once.”
Of course, it is essential for any President to reach across the aisle and connect with members of the other party. It has long been one of Biden’s strengths. Cruz, though, has shown no indication that he would ever be able to act in a bi-partisan manner, so speaking with him probably wouldn’t do much good.
