Earlier this week, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) posted a tweet that said Democrats had stolen the 2020 election from the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice, Donald Trump, by…voting. After days of being dragged on Twitter for the ridiculousness on that tweet, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) apparently said, “hold my beer.”
Cruz responded to a tweet in which a woman asked for COVID-19 guidance for a private New Year’s Eve party. When the WA government’s Twitter account responded, telling the woman that masks are not required for private parties but that dancing is prohibited, Cruz responded with his typical outrage.
‘Blue-state Dems are power-drunk authoritarian killjoys.
Washington State: NO DANCING ALLOWED!!!
Any rational and free citizen: Piss off.’
Twitter was quick to point out that the WA in the WA Government Twitter account stands for Western Australia, not Washington State. And then they laughed, and laughed, and laughed.
Restrictions to prevent the spread of the virus in Australia have been particularly strict, but they have also resulted in less than 2,300 deaths as compared to the United States’ more than 800,000 deaths. Perhaps Cruz’s outrage would be better directed at lawmakers in the GOP who have failed to support restrictions that would have kept Americans safer.
Twitter had a good laugh at Cruz’s hilariously misdirected fury. Read some of their comments below:
