Creep Show: Ted Cruz Called The Democratic Response To Trump's Border Address

As the government shutdown drags on, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said enough with the memes, but he gave the Internet endless fodder with his and Nancy Pelosi’s response to President Trump’s border address. There is a crisis at the border, The Washington Post and The New York Times reported on it. Yet, CNN and other trash liberal outlets say otherwise because a) they hate Trump; and b) it would give legitimacy to the president border agenda. The Democrats wanted to respond to the president’s address. And boy, was it something otherworldly. It was immediately mocked on social media and wasn’t persuasive in the slightest. Alas, the two sides of this shutdown debate, and they’re not budging. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) aptly noted that this response was a creep show. It was “one of the most frightening things" he had ever seen. The Texas Republican equated it to a hostage video in a segment with The Daily Caller (via The Hill):

I gotta say, watching the Schumer-Pelosi response was one of the most frightening things I've seen," Cruz says. "You want to talk about a visual? I am pretty convinced that was an actual hostage video."

"Go back and look at it again," he adds. "I am virtually certain that Nancy is blinking S.O.S. as Chuck Schumer is talking. They're hostage to the extreme, the radicals, to the crazies in their party and they're not listening to the American people." 

Pelosi and Schumer requested and were granted airtime on all the major broadcast and cable news networks to provide their response to the president's address after Trump received the same courtesy.

It’s like open mic night at the funeral home. https://t.co/oIigvPRCbi— Emily Zanotti (@emzanotti) January 9, 2019

Well, part of that is certainly true. The progressive Left is slowly taking over, partially because the Democratic power bastions are more urban and coastal. At the same time, that’s exactly where Schumer and Pelosi hail from; Schumer is New York and Pelosi is California—two of the biggest left-wing cesspools in the country. I don’t think she was blinking S.O.S., senator. She’s just nuts, and Schumer is as liberal as any person on the Hill. They want this shutdown to score points. This is politics, and both sides haven’t blinked yet. But I do agree that their response was downright creepy.

Well the optics of that dem response was downright strange. I’ll bet they don’t make that mistake again. Next time they will bring out a big gun like Alexandria Ocasio Cortez. :-)

Chuck looked like he was having a stroke on live TV. Pelosi looked like she was being goosed by Dr. No.

I watched Ted at the border with PDJT this morning and I can’t recall the last time I saw a Senator with a full beard.

Said It looks like Ted Cruz is working undercover
