When Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and his wife, Heidi, were confronted by protesters at an Italian restaurant in Washington last month — as Kavanaugh’s nomination was teetering amid sexual assault allegations — the grim-faced couple quickly ducked out as activists chanted, “We believe survivors!”
But when video of the episode was uploaded and went viral, it boosted Cruz, rather than his critics.
Ya think? How very shocking. Who could have possibly predicted this. Except for every single person with a functioning brain.
I have always felt the deepest contempt for Cruz. The guy just gets on my nerves. I can’t listen to his voice without cringing. He’s unctuous and he looks like a reptile. And don’t even start me on his politics. You know how some people hate Trump? They can’t even look at him they are so disgusted. That’s how I always felt about Cruz.
But after the restaurant video, I watched a full news segment featuring Cruz with something akin to sympathy. I don’t like seeing a person ganged up on. No matter who that person is. The image of a group hounding a person makes me feel compassion and relate to whoever is mobbed.
It’s like these protesters or whatever they call themselves are desperate to help Cruz win an election he was poised to lose. And of course he’s no fool, he plays it up, tells the story in a way that makes him sound almost human.
Who comes up with these dumbass strategies is a mystery.
