Ted Cruz Tries To Slam Biden’s First Day In The Most Clueless Way Possible

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is already bashing President Joe Biden, slamming his decision to reenter the Paris Agreement, a multinational pact on climate change.

Cruz recycled a line that former President Donald Trump had used, tweeting:

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

But there are two problems with Cruz’s message.

First, the deal isn’t about protecting the citizens of Paris. It’s named that because the international agreement was adopted by most nations of the world at a meeting in the French city.

And second, Cruz himself made it clear he had no interest in the views of Pittsburgh earlier this month when he was part of a failed attempt to reject Pennsylvania’s election results on behalf of Trump.

In addition to voting against the certification of the state’s electoral count, he also tried to get the Supreme Court to toss the state’s vote.

Twitter users pointed all this out to Cruz, but he responded only to a tweet from actor Seth Rogen telling him to fuck off, ignoring messages pointing out his hypocrisy, such as these:

You need to be expelled from the Senate for insurrection. https://t.co/p3Mn2pCea0

Ted Cruz cares so much about the citizens of Pittsburgh that two weeks ago he voted to disenfranchise them. Beyond parody. https://t.co/FcOGAVdKeX

Holy, I know more about the Paris Climate Agreement than you do, and you’re a senator and I wrote MINIONS. https://t.co/C98Tl4e2fx

Here’s another one- Cruz knows the Paris agreement isn’t about the citizens of Paris. He just thinks we don’t. Bad faith from a bad actor. https://t.co/0MmpI4vHQD
