Recently, Ted Cruz (R-TX) has been picking fights on Twitter instead of doing anything that would actually help the people of Texas. Earlier in the week, he picked a fight with Big Bird, who did a skit with Oscar the Grouch about getting the vaccine. It’s traditional; on Sesame Street, Big Bird gets the same vaccines that kids do so that he can talk to them about it and help them to feel less afraid.
Big Bird had no comment on Cruz’s bullying, but his next target was quick to school him on what his job actually is.
Yes. It’s called the Democratic primary. https://t.co/q31fFvQZOp

Cruz lashed out over Cheney’s recent support of and participation in an investigation into the events of January 6, 2021, when the twice-impeached ex-president who never won the popular vote told his supporters that the election had been stolen from him, inspiring them to attack the Capitol Building, beat back Capitol Police officers with flag poles and bear spray, and erect a gallows pole to hang Mike Pence.
Liz Cheney clapped back.
I know you’re posturing for the secessionist vote, Ted. But my party, the Republican party, saved the Union. You swore an oath to the Constitution. Act like it. https://t.co/YyQ1XHRhCY

Donald Trump’s supporters, for the most part, don’t understand what a Republican is. It was once a political philosophy that supported individual freedoms, lower taxes, and a smaller government. There was a time that Ted Cruz paid lip service to those ideals; now he’s just another Trump flunky who spends his days trying to insult people on Twitter.
Twitter had a mixed response to the new feud between the representative from Wyoming and the senator from Texas who pays fealty to a man who called his wife ugly and his father a murderer. Read some of their comments below:
