Sen. Ted Cruz sounded a dour note on Friday for the opposition party’s prospects come November.
In an interview with co-host Michael Knowles on their “Verdict” podcast, Cruz predicted that Democrats would suffer a political washout in the midterms because their policies are literally chasing away their voters, most notably Tesla and SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk.
“The Democrats who are in power seem to be completely misreading the situation. They got a lot of blunders, but as I can see it three really big prominent blunders they’re making right now on the economic front,” Knowles offered during a show segment.
“Not only have they made a lot of poor economic decisions that have hurt the country and certainly their political position, but they’re not backing away from them. They’re doubling down when it comes to energy,” he continued.
“They’re doubling down when it comes to so many aspects of the economy, on the cultural social issues, they’re defending drag queens jiggling for kids, actual little tiny children in bars, 21 plus bars in Texas of all places, they’re defending it,” he added.
“You know, Michael, it reminds me of, do you remember those videos that would come out every spring break, Girls Gone Wild and it would have lots of college women in bikinis or not bikinis?” Cruz, a Texas Republican, responded.
“It reminds me of much the same thing. This is Liberals Gone Wild. This is the crazy left that… this is AOC and Elizabeth Warren, thank God, not in bikinis, but embracing their socialist nuttiness,” he added.
“I mean, it’s literally like someone sat down at a bar and said, how much crazy crap can we do? Like how far can we go to drive away, not just the conservatives,” he continued.
“That’s a given, not even just the moderates, not even just the independents, but what can we do to drive away good old-fashioned liberals who are not nuts,” Cruz said.
“I do wanna clarify, Senator, just on the Girls Gone Wild point. I only ever watched that for the articles,” Knowles joked.
“I think the analogy is very good that they’ve gone to extremes and followed their own wildest impulses. So what is going to happen to them in these elections that are really coming up right before us?” Knowles asked.
“I know what they’re gonna do in November. They’re gonna get obliterated in November. It is going to be a historic election. It’s, every issue is so extreme,” Cruz predicted.
“Look, there are people, Bill Maher. Bill Maher is an old-school liberal, who they are driving away. Elon Musk, Elon Musk has been a Democrat his whole life,” the Texas Republican added.
“They are driving him away, where he said, ‘Okay, I’m voting Republican now, ’cause these guys are nuts,’” he said.
