As Texas suffers through a major heat wave that has once again strained their energy grid to the breaking point, an old tweet from Ted Cruz has come back to bite the Republican Senator right on his backside. The tweet came from last summer where Cruz mocked the state of California for having to force residents to conserve energy, the same thing Texas is having to do right now. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening.

Ted Cruz is haunted by the ghosts of his former tweets, far too often, mostly because Ted Cruz has constantly been on Twitter for the last few years. But there's always a tweet, right? Kind of like with Donald Trump, there was always a tweet where he had contradicted himself in the past and Ted Cruz, after spending the last few years, pretty much strictly on Twitter, same situation. Last summer, Ted Cruz tweeted out mockery towards the state of California for having to regulate energy consumption in the state. And then he went on to say that, ah, this is what AOC and Biden and Pelosi want for the whole country. Yeah, they're idiots. So anyway, what's happening right now is Texas is experiencing a massive devastating heat wave. And as a result of that, the state has had to, and the state energy companies, by the way, have had to say, listen, we got to kinda, you know, everybody's got to regulate your energy uses here.

The usage, there's not enough to go around. And of course, people are also once again, just like in the winter storm, being slapped with these astronomically high energy prices, because the Republican controlled state legislature never did anything to, to combat that. But here is the tweet that Ted Cruz sent out about California last year. California is now unable to perform even basic functions of civilization, like having reliable electricity. Biden, Harris, AOC want to make California's failed energy policy the standard nationwide. Hope you don't like air conditioning. And it's ironic because actually, if you'll, if you watched the video earlier today, where we talked about that Fox reporter announcing on the air, working with Project Veritas. Yeah. The segment she was supposed to be doing was about the failures of air conditioners across the state of Texas because of the increased demand. So Ted Cruz's own state is literally suffering from all of the things that he claimed would happen under Democrats, except this is all happening under Republicans.

Now don't take this for a second as me saying these people in Texas deserve that. Absolutely not. They do not deserve this. No human being deserves this. I don't care who you voted for or what you are. Like, that doesn't matter. What matters here is the hypocrisy coming from people like Ted Cruz. That's the point of this. It's time to debunk and leave behind forever these failed talking points from morons like Ted Cruz. He wants to sit there and act like Republican policies never fail, but Democratic policies will literally leave you in the dark ages. And he's ignoring the fact that in the state of Texas so far, twice this year, and we're not even halfway through it yet, Republicans in Texas have proven that their simply don't work. But Ted Cruz Is dead silent about that. Nah, he'd rather go out there and talk about critical race theory. Talk about the so-called crisis at the border. Anything to divert attention away from the fact that everything he has said would happen under Biden is instead happening in his Republican controlled state.
