Texas senator Ted Cruz openly mocked New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in addition to other grievances at the 2021 Conservative Political Action Conference.
The Senator said,“Bernie [Sanders] is wearing mittens, and AOC is telling us, ‘She was murdered!’ and the media desperately, desperately, desperately wants to see a Republican civil war.”
The Senator, who was recently the center of attention for flying to Cancun, Mexico while Texas suffered a massive snowstorm, made fun of wearing face coverings during the public health crisis.
He asked the audience “how much virtue do you want to signal” after saying health officials are telling Americans to wear masks “for the next 300 years.”
“And by the way, not just one but two, three, four – you can’t have too many masks,” he said. “This is just dumb.”
“Orlando is awesome,” Cruz jokes, adding, “it’s not as nice as Cancun, but it’s nice.”
