Here’s the full story…

Now, although Ted Cruz is the Senator of Texas…

He’s an unbelievably controversial man.

Although he failed to run for president in 2016 behind Donald Trump, Cruz has gone on to achieve a very successful career in U.S government and politics…

And the Republican has made quite the name for himself with his right-wing views and his hot and cold relationship with Trump throughout his controversial presidency.

But he’s also made quite the tarnished name for himself over the years with some very eye-opening moves and opinions.

Not only is Cruz an avid supporter of the NRA, but he is now also a very loyal Trump supporter who rallied behind the scorned former POTUS when Joe Biden won the 2020 election.

Cruz provoked a widespread political and popular backlash after filing objections to Biden’s victory certification…

And when it came to the Capitol Hill riot on January 6th, the senator was slammed for “amplifying” the false claims of voter fraud that drove the thousands of Trump supporters to invade the scared political building on that day.

Things then got even worse for Cruz when Texas experienced its “big freeze” in January…

And as thousands of families were suffering without electricity or running water in below freezing temperatures, Cruz instead packed his bags and boarded a plane with his family heading for Cancun, Mexico.

Residents of Texas were left feeling furious with their senator, to say the least…

And although Cruz hastly returned to Texas and issued a half-hearted apology, the damage had been done.

Cruz’s reputation has seriously been dragged through the mud in the last few months…

And now, it seems as if he’s firmly cemented himself as someone who doesn’t feel wearing face masks is necessary!

During a Senate presser yesterday, Cruz was quick to dismiss a reporter’s request for him to wear a face mask…

And it’s seriously divided opinion.

Many feel that Cruz did nothing wrong by refusing to wear a mask…




But a vast majority have been left, yet again, disgusted by Cruz’s rude behavior.








As Cruz stepped up to the microphones, an unidentified reporter is heard asking him, “Would you mind putting a mask on?”.

“Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera, I’m not going to wear a mask,” Cruz responded, “All of us have been immunized, so!”.

The reporter then tells Cruz that it would make the press feel better if he wore a mask.

“You’re welcome to step away if you’d like,” Cruz said before chuckling, “The whole point of the vaccine… CDC guidance is what we’re following.”

It all felt very sarcastic…

What do you think? Do you think Cruz isn’t in the wrong for not wearing a mask? Or do you think he should have taken more responsibility during such turbulent times.
