Ted Cruz dared condemn Biden on his first day as president for rejoining the Paris Climate Accords with this short statement:
By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans.
— Senator Ted Cruz (@SenTedCruz) January 20, 2021
His full statement is below:
“By signing this order, President Biden indicates that he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh. Rejoining the Paris agreement isn’t about ‘restoring America’s leadership abroad’ or ‘solving the climate crisis,’ but instead it is about Democrats’ plans to destroy jobs they don’t like—including thousands of manufacturing jobs—and cede control of our energy future to other countries. America’s ‘commitment’ to the Paris Climate Agreement will be used by the Biden administration as justification for a whole litany of new executive actions and burdensome federal regulations to shape our energy and environmental policy—which will burden American families, manufacturers, and businesses with higher energy costs at a time when they are already struggling.
“If the Biden administration believes that rejoining the agreement is something the American people should support, then he should submit the Paris Climate Agreement to the Senate as a treaty and let the people decide through their elected representatives. But he knows that it would fail. So like his Democratic predecessor, President Biden is governing by executive fiat.
“Without the Paris Climate Agreement, the United States has led the world in emissions reductions. Likewise, the United States over the last 50 years has dramatically reduced the levels of some of the most harmful pollutants and improved the air quality for all Americans, while at the same time helping more people get better paying jobs and improving their lives.
“Rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement will do little to affect the climate, and will harm the livelihoods of everyday Americans all across the country. I’ll continue working with my colleagues to fight for blue-collar workers and to defend America’s energy independence.”
Pretty straight forward and ordinary statement like we’d expect from Ted Cruz, right? But he apparently struck a nerve and got this response from Seth Rogen:
Fuck off you fascist.

Looks like he hurt poor little Seth Rogen’s feelings. Seriously, what a jerk. And they complained about Trump?
Ted Cruz responded late last night saying “Charming, civil, educated response. @Sethrogen If you’re a rich, angry Hollywood celebrity, today’s Dems are the party for you. If you’re blue-collar, if you’re a union member, if you work in energy or manufacturing…not so much. #JobsMatter”

CNN’s Jake Tapper, who’s dropped what little mask he was wearing since Biden won the election and turned into an a-hole on Twitter, accused Cruz of only now caring about Pittsburg after he tried to disenfranchise their voters:
After voting to disenfranchise the entire commonwealth of Pennsylvania based on lies and conspiracy theories, Cruz expresses concern for the citizens of Pittsburgh. https://t.co/YQvBrV9PT9
— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) January 21, 2021
But that’s not true. Ted Cruz objected in order to establish a commission that would investigate the voter fraud we KNOW happened in Pennsylvania, specifically Philadelphia. Accusing him of trying to disenfranchise voters, when Democrats have objected in the past to the electoral votes from several different states, just proves that Tapper is a mouthpiece for the DNC.
AOC chimed in with this nonsensical question:
Nice tweet Sen. Cruz! Quick question: do you also believe the Geneva Convention was about the views of the citizens of Geneva?
Asking for everyone who believes US Senators should be competent and not undermine our elections to incite insurrection against the United States https://t.co/mMf8iDo72G

That doesn’t even make sense. The Geneva convention was about establishing a higher standard of conduct when countries are at war, not demanding ridiculous regulations that kill jobs in the name of a phony issue called
Global Warming Climate Change.
The list could go on and on, but you get the drift.
