Sen. Ted Cruz is in a tough spot. He was one of the senators who objected to the certification of the electoral votes, citing election irregularities, which to many Democrats makes him an insurrectionist guilty of inciting the mob that stormed the Capitol on January 6. Plenty are hoping that the January 6 special committee holds him responsible for his part in trying to overthrow the election.
But now Cruz is turning off a lot of people for calling the January 6 riots “a violent terrorist attack.” And David Drucker points out that this isn’t the first time he’s said this.
Ted Cruz: "We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the capitol."
"It is also worth asking … What could have prevented the breach of the Capitol? What could have prevented the riot getting as far as it did?"

Hardly the first time @tedcruz has referred to the Jan. 6, 2021, ransacking of the U.S. Capitol as a "terrorist attack." He did so in the immediate aftermath of the riot while discussing the event on his podcast, "Verdict." =>> https://t.co/qxyFiWet4s

That hasn’t appeased the Left in the slightest, who hold him personally responsible just as they do Donald Trump.
Come on man! 🙄

Are all riots terrorist attacks? Or was it an armless insurrection? What was it really?

The @GOP will NEVER get my vote again. Including trump. I’ll likely never vote again period. They are ALL the “swamp”

Jesus @tedcruz REALLY?! You don’t deserve our support you coward.

Cruz is pathetic.

Cruz can’t win on this one; leftists consider him an insurrectionist and conservatives are disappointed with him buying into the “terrorist attack” rhetoric.

Video of @tedcruz today that the Jan 6th mass trespassing event violently cracked down by police was a “violent terrorist attack on the capitol.”
The game is over, folks.
Go home and get a life.
