Immediately after his investiture on Capitol Hill and attending a wreath laying ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery on Wednesday, Mr Biden got to work behind the resolute desk in the Oval Office and issued 17 executive orders rescinding some of the most toxic policies of its predecessor. Donald Trump, including his withdrawal from the 2016 Paris Agreement to fight climate change.
Mr Cruz, who had backed Mr Trump’s false claim that the November election was ‘stolen’ by Democrats and pledged to challenge the certification of results in Congress before the riot erupted on Capitol Hill Jan. 6, attended Mr. Biden’s swearing-in and enjoyed spotting celebrities before taking him to task on his green program.
“By joining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden says he is more interested in the opinions of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh,” the Republican wrote on Twitter. “This deal will do little to affect the climate and hurt Americans’ livelihoods.”
By defending the economic interests of industrial America and by invoking one of its most famous manufacturing hubs, the “Steel City” of Pennsylvania, Mr. Cruz seemed to argue that the revival of the Multilateral Environmental Pact – signed by Barack Obama in his final year – would only benefit residents of the French capital.
In fact, this deal is a sweeping commitment endorsed by 197 countries to limit greenhouse gas emissions globally and keep global temperature rise to just 2% above pre-industrial levels, goals generally considered to be of benefit to all.
Among those who berated Mr. Cruz was CNN presenter Jake Tapper, who ridiculed the senator for his support for Mr. Trump’s attempts to overturn the election result in Pennsylvania, a key state that has become blue for Mr. Biden, a native son born in Scranton.
“After having voted to deprive the entire Commonwealth of Pennsylvania on the basis of lies and conspiracy theories, Cruz expresses his concern for the citizens of Pittsburgh,” he commented.
Environmental activist Greta Thunberg responded to Cruz’s comment with sarcasm, tweeting: “I am so happy that the United States has finally joined the Pittsburgh Accord. Welcome back! ”
It comes after the Swedish teenager also took a hit on Donald Trump’s exit from the White House by throwing his own words at him and describing him as a “very happy old man who is looking forward to a bright and wonderful future” .
More succinctly, comedic actor Seth Rogen stepped in, responding, “F *** off you fascist.”
“Charming, civil and educated response,” replied Cruz, alleging the anti-conservative prejudices of a member of the liberal elite on the West Coast. “If you’re a rich and angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you are blue collar workers, if you are unionized, if you work in energy or manufacturing… not so much. JobsMatter. ”
Mr Rogen hit back, “Haha get fucked fascist. Go encourage a white supremacist insurgency again, you fucking clown.
He added, “If you’re a white supremacist fascist who doesn’t find it offensive when someone calls your ugly wife, Ted Cruz is exactly the family man for you.
There was no response to the latter remark, which hinted at an argument between Mr Cruz and Mr Trump as the two were rivals seeking to be named the Republican presidential challenger against Hillary Clinton in 2016.
At the height of their feud in March of that year, Mr. Trump tweeted an unflattering photo of the senator’s wife, Heidi Cruz, alongside one of his own wife, Melania, with the nasty caption: “No need to ‘spill the beans.’ Pictures are worth a thousand words. ”
Mr Cruz was furious and told reporters the next day, “I don’t get angry often, but if you disturb my wife, if you disturb my children, it will every time. Donald, you’re a whiny coward and leave Heidi alone.
That hasn’t stopped him, however, from becoming one of President Trump’s most staunch apologists in Washington, his recent support for the outgoing Commander-in-Chief’s “Stop the Steal” campaign supposed to come with an eye on choice. of Mr. Cruz’s disenfranchised supporters and starting a second run for the White House himself in 2024.
The senator was further criticized on Wednesday for his choice of Covid face mask at the inauguration, with Mr Cruz sporting one bearing a pro-National Rifle Association slogan after the lobby group announced it would move its headquarters to his New York State.
“The fact that Ted Cruz wears a ‘Come And Take It’ mask at President Biden’s inauguration – especially when Biden and Harris are the targets of assassination threats – tells you everything you need to know about this pathetic man Anti-gun activist Shannon tweeted. Watts.
“Ted Cruz wants us to believe he represents Texas with this mask on, but he’s actually a hissing dog at Trumpists and gun extremists who had ‘Come and Take It’ flags when trying to coup d’etat at the Capitol.
