Ted Cruz has come a long way from his 2016 presidential campaign.

Ted has been a polarizing figure in the Republican party, dividing it between those that loved his brand of conservativism and those that hated his perceived smugness.

Some labeled him the savior of the Republican party…

While others labeled him the human Muppet…

But when Trump labeled him “Lyin’” Ted Cruz, that was the moniker that seemed to stick.

There’s something about Trump’s nicknames that seem to follow people…

Lyin’ Ted Cruz, Crooked Hillary, Sleep Joe Biden, Pocahontas Warren – it’s like he’s got a gift of name-calling.

However, while Joe, Hillary, and Warren can’t seem to shake their monikers…

Ted has reinvented himself. He went home to Texas, grew a beard, and redoubled his conservative efforts, effectively rebranding himself to the point that conservatives – even the ones that didn’t like him three years ago – are starting to call him by a different nickname.

“Lion” Ted Cruz.

Roar, Lion… ROAR!

And like a lion, Ted seems to roar from the top of Capitol Hill, espousing conservative ideals and has proven himself to be on of Trump’s most ardent defenders.

While you have losers like Mitt Romney and Justin Amash bashing Trump anytime a microphone is put in front of their face, Cruz has supported the President – even when it was unpopular among some of the bigger names in his party, which, as a conservative, is refreshing.

The divide in the party is apparent…

And nowhere is this divide MORE apparent than with their stance on the impeachment proceedings.

Believe it or not…

There are some conservatives in both the House and the Senate that aren’t sure where they’d fall if impeachment actually happens.

Well, the Lion of DC is having nothing of it…

He knows where he stands and he’s taking lawmakers to task.

In a recent interview with Fox News, Cruz unloaded…

“Washington is always a circus, but this is three rings with all the clowns and it’s nuts right now,” Cruz said.

Nuts is right…

“Congressional Democrats are angry,” he continued, “They’re angry about the 2016 election. Ultimately, they’re angry at the voters. They’re angry that the voters elected President Trump. All of this from day one, they had been wanting to get this president out of office.”

It’s About EMOTION – Not FACTS!

He hit the nail on the head…

The impeachment is nothing but a politically-motivated farce.

They’ve proven as much with the “reasons” they’re giving for starting the proceedings in the first place— accusations proven to be FALSE for Trump but TRUE for Joe Biden.

And Ted isn’t letting them off the hook.

He continued after his last statement about wanting Trump out of office…

“And as a result, they’re not doing their jobs. They’re not actually interested in legislating. They’re not interested in working together to produce more jobs and wages and expand opportunity. It’s just about attacking the president.”

EXACTLY, Lion Ted…

Exactly.

He ended with this…

“What we have seen from the Democrats is a consistent and relentless push to impeach regardless of the facts. For months and months and months it was all about Mueller. Mueller, Mueller, Mueller, Mueller’s going to prove everything’s wrong. Then the Mueller report came along and it found no collusion, and suddenly all the Democrats who had been screaming ‘Impeach!’—they had nothing to say.”

Of course they didn’t…

How can you argue FACTS?

They can’t…

And as Ted points out, they can’t even USE facts.

“Now, right now, they’re all screaming ‘Ukraine! Ukraine! Ukraine!’ and oddly enough, it’s the exact same conclusion: Impeach the president. And, by the way, in a month or two, it’s liable to be something else. It’s not driven by facts.”

Thanks for being you, Ted…

Hope to see you in the White House in 2024.
