Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, rode shotgun in the ‘People’s Convoy’ for a while before appearing at a press conference with some of the truckers, and it appears to have seriously triggered the left.
The meltdown occurred because, during the presser, Cruz was asked by a reporter whether he believes the vaccines saved lives. He wasn’t about to fall for the bait, and gave an answer that, at another point in history might have been considered common sense. In this day and age, however, it is considered something akin to heresy.
“Senator, do you believe the vaccine has saved lives?” the reporter queried.
“Look, I hope so. I’m not a doctor,” Cruz answered. “You know what, why would you take medical advice from me? I wouldn’t take medical advice from me. I’m not in the business of giving medical advice. Go talk to your physician if you wanna figure out whether you should take the vaccine or not. I hope we have good doctors and good scientists that are figuring that out.”

Cue the outpouring of hatred from the left:
He IS LITERALLY WEARING THE SAME CLOTHES AS HE DID ON JAN 6TH ! WHY HAS NO ONE MENTIONED THIS.

He is almost there. I think he meant “why would you believe anything I say? I wouldn’t believe anything I say.”

No one asked for his advice on whether to get the vaccine or not. They asked for a binary judgment on their efficacy. He’s trying to have it both ways.

Yet a moment ago he told us he firmly believed the virus excaped from a Chinese lab – so he knows more than our intelligence (and actual virologists) but he’s not a doctor!!!

That was not a question about medical advice, it’s a simple policy question that can be answered based on the numbers. What a weak dodge.

Yet he’s so quick to say (incorrectly,of course) that covid came from a lab.

In that same news conference, someone off-screen screams “Ted Cruz sucks!”
To which the senator responds as only he can: “God bless you.”
