Ted Cruz has made this joke several times recently: “I’ve spent the past month in Washington D.C. and it is terrific to be back in America.” But instead of getting that Cruz was joking about the severe disconnect between people who live in the DC bubble and real America, he chooses to make it about race, about white people in Texas vs black and brown people in Washington DC. It’s absolute absurdity, especially considering that Cruz never even mentioned anything about race whatsoever.
Talk about making a mountain out of…well, nothing really. There’s not even a mole hill to be found here. If this isn’t Cruz Derangement Syndrome on steroids, I don’t know what is.
