Between the caption and Cruz reciting the pledge, liberals went nuts and the video has gotten over three million views in less than a day.
Cruz responded to the outrage like this:
A simple tweet. The American flag. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance……..without another word.
And liberal heads EXPLODE. 🤯🤯🤯
3M views, in just 22 hours.
Why, do you think, it triggers them so? https://t.co/xj1J2wIR67

He’s not wrong about this being controversial. Otherwise there wouldn’t have been lawsuits to get this out of some schools around the country. Not to mention all of the hate-America garbage we see these days.
Here’s some of the outrage that the video got:

It’s “used to be,” Rafael, you illiterate clown. What IS still controversial is inciting an insurrection; leaving your state’s residents during a deadly crisis to chill in Mexico; and licking the taint of the man who called your father a murderer and your wife ugly. #CruztheCuck https://t.co/PW8cf5k00q

Neither did upholding the values you are pledging allegiance to. And yet, here we are. https://t.co/0MarObJxFb
