What does Ol' Cancun Coward believe he's going to get with all this sycophancy?

Or maybe, just maybe, he doesn't care if what he says is true or not.

Ted, do you have rules of conduct in your home? What do you do when a person violates a rule?

Do you just let it go and let that person continue to break the rules?

Twitter has rules like that...you'd think you would know that.

Oh right.

Probably, he sure does love being in the news.

WTH is wrong with Texas. That guy gets re-elected. Any collection of at least halfway aware and sane people would never do that.

He doesn't need to get anything except to be able to show his MAGA bina fides to the base. That's it.

And he knows that if the base throws Trump under the bus, no one will be blamed for sucking up becuz they all did.

There's only upside to treason in the GQP.

So, typical republican then.

Youtube, facebook, twitter, twitch and instagram could ban all trumpers tomorrow morning and it would all be legal.

Twitter follow more their own rules than the just-us system. Thats a sad state of affairs.

You either get swatted by a rolled up newspaper or get abandoned in the home all by yourself.

Just wait Trumps gonna publicly call for a coup soon.

Never believe that Ted Cruz is completely unaware of the absurdity of his replies. He knows that his remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But he is amusing himself, for it is his adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. Ted Cruz has the right to play. He even likes to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, he discredits the seriousness of his interlocutors. He delights in acting in bad faith, since he seeks not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press his too closely, he will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

Trump has access to the free and hashtag open internet.  He even had his own damn website for a while.

Whatever happened to that, Rafi?

Texas is stuck with him until 2024. If he gets reelected with all the baggage he is carrying, then the majority of Texas probably deserves him. I feel sorry for those that don't. They are also putting up with Cornyn, Crenshaw, Gomert, Abbott, Patrick, and Paxton. At some point, Texas should run out of feet to shoot, right?
 
2021-06-05 7:32:32 PM  
Jesus Ted,just give him a blow job,it would be more dignified at this point.

They could, but it would destroy their business model.
 
2021-06-05 7:33:28 PM  
It's a human right. When Trump rises to the level of human, he can have access again.

You're lucky Twitter is too dumb to see beyond your mask, "Ted".

The NFL is a private organization and Trump demanded that it do his bidding and act as a state agent to silence protesting athletes. And if his demands were not met, he threatened to pass legislation to punish them financially.

But sure... we should all be concerned for the supposed 1rst amendment rights of some ahole who had no problem actually taking away the free speech from people. The republican golden rule: Treat us better than we treat others.

Imagine being a liberal and your daughter comes home having learned that these are her representatives.

I can't imagine a group of people that could possibly represent me less than those sacks of sh*t. At least we got a real president again.

I know this girl, Becky. She was cut off from Twitter for, like, five hours and she died.  Died!
Hit by a bus but five hours without twitter she probably didn't know she shouldn't walk in the middle of the street.

Crying 'censorship' is the last refuge of people with nothing of substance to say.

There are rights that can, and should, be taken away from those who abuse them or deny them to others.

You don't have to misunderstand things to deliberately misinterpret them for political purposes.

Assume malice first, stupidity second.  These days, the latter is almost certain, but it's not the important part to focus on.  'Stupidity' is almost a hall pass for this kind of thing, while malice is not.

Godamn the amount of stupid downthread from his post is mindboggling.

Everything from saying "Dr. Fauci has blood on his hands and cannot be trusted" to Diamond & Silk praising one of their relatives becoming a lawyer and Royal Caribbean caving to Dedumbass in Florida, and everything in between.

Of course, the derp army calling for Big Tech to be shut down because they don't know how private companies work is popular there too. They also still call themselves "74+ million" and silent majority.

Can we just say that if we had nukes in the Civil War we would have nuked them, so we're going to do it now for the preservation of our country?

Subby, Ted also proved that he cares far more about the self-pity of a pandemic-bungling insurrection-provoking numbskull than he does about the promotion of American values overseas or about the oppression of over 100,000,000 Africans.

If your first reaction at hearing of oppression overseas (or anywhere) is to say "Donald Trump, pseudo-billionaire living in a country club, is also oppressed," then you are a sniveling toady unworthy of the office you hold and unfaithful to the values to which the United States should ascribe and to which they should promote overseas.

Ted Cruz is a Harvard educated lawyer who graduated in the top five of his class, Clerked for a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and has successfully argued five cases before the Supreme Court.

He is not ignorant of the US Constitution.

The saying "never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity" doesn't apply here. Ted Cruz is not stupid, he's an evil sack of shiat carefully choosing words for his target audience.

Oh, Raffie knows.

But he's counting on the folks he's aiming his comments at, not knowing.

And half of those folks are in on it too, but it serves their purpose to repeat whatever the f*** suits their purpose in the moment.

Facts do not matter to the GOP. Anymore.

"willfully denying Donald Trump"

Donald Trump willfully denied himself. He's a toddler.

Twice Impeached Guy still has the right to stand on top of a box on the sidewalk and scream about his colostomy bag being a communist. He doesn't have the right to force anyone** to give him services for free.

// **except for Secret Service people, who must continue to tail him until he self-deletes.

You'll have to be more specific.

OH!  Now you've done it.  Ted Cruz will be coming soon to your house in a raging fury to ask you one important question:  which one of your testicles should he start licking on, left or right?

Curious how republicans have all forgotten that they tried to delete TikTok because it made Trump feel bad it's data collection wasn't patriotic enough.
