On Wednesday, Sen. Ted Cruz told the truth about what happened at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, calling it “a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol, where we saw the men and women of law enforcement demonstrate incredible courage.”
So for once, he told the truth.
But less than 24 hours later the Texas Republican Senator was backtracking wildly after the GOP came after him for not peddling the party line.
On FOX Tucker Carlson slammed him — for telling the truth.
Carlson: “You called this a ‘terror attack’ when by no definition was it a terror attack. That’s a lie. You told that lie on purpose, and I’m wondering why you did.”
Cruz: “Well, Tucker, thank you for having me on. … The way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy, and it was, frankly, dumb.”
Carlson: “I don’t buy that. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I don’t buy that. … You take words as seriously as any man who’s ever served in the Senate. … I do not believe that you used that accidentally. I just don’t.”
