Dan Crenshaw huffs at Tucker blows, gets hit more: ‘Have you ever called a Democrat a terrorist, you corrupt hack?’

U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw was slammed after he likened GOP holdouts to Kevin McCarthy’s elevation to Speaker of the House to terrorists during a radio show interview, excessively harsh rhetoric directed at members of his own party as well as a flagrant violation of Ronald Reagan’s “11th commandment” to speak no ill of a fellow Republican.

Not content to merely smear his congressional colleagues as being the equivalent of ISIS and al Qaeda, Crenshaw also accused their daring to engage in the democratic process of taking hostages, which he did in a video posted to Twitter this week.

One of those who spoke out against the Texas Republican for invoking DNC talking points was Fox News ratings king Tucker Carlson who tore into him during a segment on Wednesday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“Over the past few years, pretty much every part of the war on terror has been turned against the domestic political enemies of the neocons,” he said. “So now they’re just coming out and telling you what they told you about Iraq, either you’re with us or you’re against us, you’re on the side of light or darkness, you’re good or evil.”

“What you just saw is the snarling face of the donor class,” he said of Crenshaw, whom he called a surrogate for McCarthy.

Carlson, who had previously derisively referred to the bellicose lawmaker as “eyepatch McCain,” a reference to the now-deceased warmongering Senator John McCain, truly struck a nerve with Crenshaw taking to Twitter to clap back.

“Unclutch your pearls. It’s a figure of speech. You can’t insult, slander, and hold everyone hostage with no way out – and not expect me to punch back,” he huffed. “Grow thicker skin.”

Crenshaw soon discovered that Carlson isn’t the only one who feels that way, taking heavy fire from Twitter users who expressed their disgust over his despicable conduct.

Crenshaw – a former Navy SEAL who is seen by many as a major disappointment as a lawmaker – also dumped on those resisting the quick coronation of McCarthy as “petty” nobodies in a seething rant earlier this week.

Crenshaw and the donor class will likely soon get their way with reports of an imminent deal with the “terrorists” clearing the way for McCarthy to become speaker.
