Ted Cruz fought Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election.
Cruz then refused to endorse Trump until the late stages of the general election.
And now Ted Cruz made this unthinkable confession to Sean Hannity about Donald Trump.
Ted Cruz found himself the latest victim of the Democrat media’s two minutes of hate against a prominent Republican.
The Democrat media pounced on Cruz taking a short vacation with his family to Cancun when Texas suffered terrible effects from an ice storm.
By the time Cruz left for Cancun, nearly two million Texans had power restored and Cruz already made a request to Joe Biden for a national disaster declaration.
That didn’t stop the Democrat media from flooding the zone with negative stories about Cruz’s bad “optics.”
Cruz eventually did apologize saying he wished he didn’t go on the trip and came home the next day because of that guilt.
In an interview with Sean Hannity, Senator Cruz explained the media seized on his trip because activists in the press suffered from “Trump withdrawal.”
“I think the media is suffering from Trump withdrawal where they’ve attacked Trump every day for four years,” Cruz declared. “They don’t know what to do. So they obsess over my taking my girls to the beach. I’ve got to tell you, today, I asked Merrick Garland if he would open an investigation into Andrew Cuomo’s shameful policies. A senior Cuomo aide admitted they lied. They covered up the policies that sent COVID-positive people into nursing homes and may well have resulted in the deaths of thousands or tens of thousands. Merrick Garland wouldn’t commit to investigate it. And the media won’t even cover it.”
The Democrats waged war on Donald Trump for four years.
But despite the fact that liberal activists in the press despised Donald Trump they also needed him from a financial and professional perspective.
CNN and MSNBC dethroned Fox News as the number one rated cable news network in the final month of the Trump administration.
But what many forget is the fact that prior to Trump coming on the scene, CNN and MSNBC struggled to draw an audience and many in the media worried the model of 24-hour cable news could not survive.
Without Donald Trump and his ability to generate headlines and command attention, the Democrat media needs to create a new antagonist to drive outrage and viewership among their liberal audiences.
The Democrat media tried to cast Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene in that role.
But after Democrats voted to strip her of her committee assignments, the Democrat media cast around for a new villain.
And the media hoped to fashion Ted Cruz for that role after his trip to Cancun.
