Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz made a mockery of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and he “arrest” in front of the Supreme Court.
As he was rallying the crowd against the current 9.1 percent inflation rate, he used the arrest of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez, where she pretended to be handcuffed, as a punchline the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit at the Tampa Convention Center on Friday.
The Texas Republican also took a swipe at California Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell for the rumors of his past connections to an alleged Chinese spy named Fang Fang.
“’Inflation is out of control. Food is skyrocketing. Electricity is skyrocketing. Health care is skyrocketing,” he said to the audience.
“It is so bad, ANTIFA can’t afford bricks. It’s gotten so bad, Eric Swalwell can’t afford Chinese dinners,” the senator said.
“It’s gotten so bad AOC can’t afford fake handcuffs,” he said.
He got a standing ovation when he said “My preferred pronouns are ‘kiss my a**.’”
Ted Cruz is not messing around!
