Ted Cruz has a lot of nerve.

The Texas Senator is barely a month removed from the fallout of his cowardly attempt to fly to Cancun while his constituents huddled in the freezing darkness of an unprecedented ice storm, and he has the gall to criticize Vice-President Harris about her priorities?

Last night, Cruz continued cultivating his new persona as an immature, excessively online shitposter by quote-tweeting a hyperbolic story from right-wing rag RedState about how Vice-President Kamala visited a bakery during a trip to Chicago.

Vice-President Harris has been delegated the Biden administration’s “border czar” in response to a sharp uptick in asylum-seekers at the border and has quickly become a whipping boy for the rabid right-wing propaganda machine as they try to spin the arrival of hurricane victims into a xenophobic scandal.

In their twisted eyes, Kamala Harris should be spending every day standing at the border and personally telling each terrified migrant family that they’re not wanted here, and anything less means that she’s not doing her job properly. It doesn’t suit their hateful, hyperpartisan narrative to acknowledge the fact that policy and governance are not done through performative cosplay stunts — like when Ted Cruz himself recently went to the border and to film himself looking scared — but by the tireless and unacknowledge behind-the-scenes that doesn’t make for snappy cable news clips.

Add your name to demand Congress raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour!

Ted Cruz is a United States Senator. If he’s really so concerned about the arrival of immigrants at the border, then maybe he should get to work and write some laws instead of posting snarky tweets and dressing up like a cheeseburger cowboy for a desert photoshoot.

Social media immediately unloaded on Cruz for his infuriating post:



Colin Taylor is the editor-in-chief of Occupy Democrats. He graduated from Bennington College with a Bachelor’s degree in history and political science. He now focuses on advancing the cause of social justice and equality in America.
