Ted Cruz CPAC Speech Reminiscent of Bad Open Mic Comedy

Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz appeared to have a manic episode at CPAC 2021 over the weekend. Cruz’s speech was riddled with bad jokes and bad acting. He opened up the speech by making a self-deprecating joke about how it’s great to be in Orlando but it’s not as nice as Cancun. This came across as a desperate attempt to pretend that Cruz’s Mexico scandal is behind him and that it’s something that can now be laughed off. The Texas senator then tried to warm up the crowd with the line: “Bernie is wearing mittens and AOC is telling us ‘she was murdered.’” How exactly this riles up Republicans is unclear, but it appears to work.

Then, Cruz went into a bit about how restaurants often require people to wear masks when walking around but allow them to come off while patrons are seated at the table. A speech by a Republican during a pandemic is apparently not complete without making fun of mask-wearing. Cruz went on to argue that the left wants people to wear “2, 3, 4, you can’t have too many masks” and added, “how much virtue do you want to signal? This is just dumb.” When it was time to conclude the speech, the Texas senator chose to do so in the cringiest way possible, by quoting a line from Mel Gibson’s character in “Braveheart.” Cruz screamed “FREEDOM!” into the microphone before exiting the stage. Though much shorter, Cruz’s speech managed to be almost as idiotic as that of the former president.
