(Townhall) Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) ended up giving Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) a history of her own party after the progressive responded to his criticism of the NAACP’s recent travel advisory in Florida.
“This is bizarre. And utterly dishonest,” Cruz commented on the NAACP’s claim that Florida is “hostile to Black Americans.”
“In the 1950s & 1960s, the NAACP did extraordinary good helping lead the civil rights movement. Today, Dr. King would be ashamed of how profoundly they’ve lost their way,” Cruz added.
AOC followed up, encouraging Cruz to “tell people what happened to the parties after that,” referring to the debunked theory that the parties switched.
Many, including Elon Musk, sat back for what would no doubt be an entertaining exchange.
The kind of interaction that makes this platform so unique & entertaining!
