'What the Hell’s Going On': Ted Cruz Roasted for Claiming January 6 Was a 'Violent Terrorist Attack'


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) received backlash for claiming on Wednesday the January 6 riot was a “violent terrorist attack.”

While Cruz may have ambitions to run for president in 2024, the senator from Texas echoed familiar Democrat rhetoric about the incident.

“We are approaching a solemn anniversary this week. And it is an anniversary of a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol,” Cruz claimed.

Many Republicans reacted to the statement with derision and suggested Cruz was betraying the Republican Party, though Cruz has tried to dig himself out from his statement.

Sebastian Gorka suggested that Cruz has become compromised. “Who got to Ted Cruz,” he tweeted.
