Ted Cruz Goes Down In Flames For Hypocritical Attack On Fauci
August 8, 2021

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) faced blowback on Twitter over the weekend after he suggested that Dr. Anthony Fauci "says what is politically convenient at the moment."

Cruz made the remark while promoting a video clip of a recent interview attacking Fauci.

"Dr. Fauci is a political player who says what is politically convenient at the moment," the senator wrote.

Commenters quickly accused Cruz of describing himself.

"Project it all out, Ted," one commenter wrote.

"I don't think Rafael reads his own Twitter feed," another person pointed out.

"You just described yourself to a T!" another comment said.
