image for Ted Cruz Mocked After He Demands Military Stop Bullying Tucker Carlson

On Twitter on Sunday, Cruz accused the military of “launching political attacks to intimidate” Carlson and “other civilians who criticize their policy decisions.”.

Under Biden, the military is launching political attacks to intimidate Tucker Carlson & other civilians who criticize their policy decisions.

I've demanded a meeting with the Commandant of the USMC to put a stop to it. — Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) March 14, 2021.

Last week, Carlson insinuated that the U.S. military is becoming more “feminine” and complained about accommodations for pregnant servicewomen while praising the masculinity of China’s Navy.

But Cruz decided a talk show host who specializes in controversial and dubious arguments needed to be defended.

If only Ted stood up for his wife, father, kids, and dog like he does for Tucker Carlson.

The US Military must not go to war with.... (looks at Ted Cruz's fantasy outrage list)... Tucker Carlson. »
