Skip to comments.Creep Show: Ted Cruz Called The Democratic Response To Trump's Border Address
Posted on 01/11/2019 2:51:46 PM PST by Kaslin
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 Pelosis response to President Trumps 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 presidents address. And boy, was it something otherworldly. It was immediately mocked on social media and wasnt persuasive in the slightest. Alas, the two sides of this shutdown debate, and theyre 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.
Its 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, thats exactly where Schumer and Pelosi hail from; Schumer is New York and Pelosi is Californiatwo of the biggest left-wing cesspools in the country. I dont think she was blinking S.O.S., senator. Shes 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 havent blinked yet. But I do agree that their response was downright creepy.
Shut down the border and starve em out!
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.
Said It looks like Ted Cruz is working undercover or something!
He added: "They're hostage to the extreme, the radicals, to the crazies in their party and they're not listening to the American people."
If Sen. Cruz let his hair grow out, he’d look like a Civil War general ... Whatever animosity may have been between him and the President seems to have been put aside. Water under the bridge.
And that bit about Nazi Pelosi blinking SOS is hilarious.
My take is that, once again, Trump outsmarted the dynamic duo.
They were convinced he would declare a Nat’l Emergency, and were prepared to respond accordingly.
When that didn’t happen, they didn’t know what to say. LOL Deer in the headlights. Quite amusing.
If you’ve missed it, look up “blink count” on YouTube for a David Letterman bit with Pelosi.
Alexandria Ortega-Chavez. I like it.
The Art of War or the Art of the Deal. Same basic script. Never attack where the enemy expects. If you do, you lose initiative.
So sick and tired of this topic. :) Let’s roll!
I don’t like compromise, because nothing really gets taken care of.
Mr. President: Don’t compromise! (They will NEVER compromise with you, and you know it!)
They only want bi-partisan agreement when the the republicans are in power. That’s it!
They’re smart. Let’s be smart, too. Fight back! (Asshats!)
You are NEVER going to win you’re country back from the Marxists by applying reasoning. NEVER! Please get this!
Notice how NP said NO.
She means it!
And she ain’t gon change her mind never! NEVER!
Strange isn’t the word. The wife was watching the president speech. I came out of the kitchen when Chuck and Nancy came on and almost had a heart attack. They looked like those two little girl ghosts in the movie “The Shinning’’.
I wished my husband would keep hid beard neatly trimmed like that.
