The Republican establishment bet big on Texas Congressman Dan Crenshaw.
But Crenshaw and the GOP establishment got some bad news.
And that’s because Dan Crenshaw picked a fight with Tucker Carlson that instantly backfired in one big way.
Dan Crenshaw smeared the conservatives opposing Kevin McCarthy’s bid to become speaker of the House as “terrorists.”
Crenshaw — who preaches party loyalty when it suits him — then claimed his fellow Republicans were “enemies.”
“They are enemies now,” Crenshaw ranted. “They have made it clear that they prefer a Democrat agenda [over] a Republican one.”
Tucker Carlson took Crenshaw to task for using George Bush-style rhetoric from the days after the 9/11 terror attacks where Bush declared you are either with America or the terrorists.
“They’re terrorists now? It’s hard not to see the connection, because 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,” Carlson declared. “So now they’re coming out and tell you what they told you about Iraq: Either you’re with us or against us. You’re on the side of light or darkness. You’re good or evil.”
Crenshaw threw a temper tantrum on social media over Carlson’s criticism.
In a whiny tweet Crenshaw tried to act all macho and tell Carlson to “grow thicker skin.”
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.
Grow thicker skin. https://t.co/gmwDmfCney

Carlson has never had much use for Crenshaw.
Crenshaw’s spoken in favor of red flag confiscation laws that would allow Democrats to seize firearms from conservatives based on claims that their politics made them “dangerous” to society.
At the 2020 Republican National Convention Crenshaw refused to speak President Trump’s name during his speech.
The GOP establishment also views Crenshaw as this generation’s John McCain — a RINO who will constantly sell out the base while claiming to be a great conservative champion based on a heroic and compelling biography.
Crenshaw supports the John McCain/Hillary Clinton foreign policy leading him to vote for funneling $100 billion in taxpayer money to secure Ukraine’s border while letting Joe Biden keep America’s border open.
And much like McCain, Crenshaw loves running to the corporate media to attack conservatives.
“I think the 20 holdouts are continuing to show themselves to be unbelievably unserious. Now they’re just choosing random people. They don’t have a plan,” Washington Post reporter Dylan Wells recounted Crenshaw ranting. “It’s almost like they want to make the point that they don’t have a plan.”
Dan Crenshaw is among the worst of the new generation of establishment RINOs.
And Tucker Carlson makes no bones about showing the audience every time Dan Crenshaw betrays the conservative base.
