Jesus, Petey, give it a rest already.
Asked about Rep. Peter King’s continued attacks on him, Sen. Ted Cruz told CNN’s Erin Burnett on Tuesday, “I’ve never met him. To be honest, I don’t think I had ever heard of him until he started getting on television attacking me.”
And so continued the verbal volleying between the two outspoken lawmakers on the cable news shows.
Rep. King recently called Cruz a fraud, joining Democrats in blaming the Texas senator for the government shutdown in 2013. After Dave Brat’s stunning defeat of Eric Cantor in Virginia last week, King again went after Cruz, warning on MSNBC, “We can’t allow Eric’s defeat last night to allow the Ted Cruzes and the Rand Pauls to take over the party, or their disciples to take over the party.” King said, “Because this is not conservatism to me. Shutting down the government is not being conservative.”
With all that’s going on does anyone even remember the Obama government shutdown? Move on already.
King, who seems more obsessed with taking down Cruz than he is defeating Democrats has compared Cruz to a “kamikaze pilot” who is “hijacking the party.” The New York representative has also said that people “think he’s crazy” and that “no one has done more to strengthen Obamacare” than the Texas senator.
King is so obsessed with himself he actually said Cruz would be better off if only he’d have listen to the sage advice of … Peter King.
“Actually, I feel sorry for him,” he said. “Maybe, if he had a taken the time to listen to me over the years, maybe he’d be a little smarter than he is and be a little less ignorant and maybe he’d have a few more friends. He likes to live in his own little bubble.” King added, “In all seriousness, what I’ve heard about Cruz is that he knows himself and nobody else, basically.”
His ego is so huge we’re kind of surprised he’s able to affix that bad rug to his head.
