Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is fired up, slamming the podiums, and challenging reporters to ask the Bidens and Jen Psaki why they don’t wear masks at the podium during speeches.
Reporters certainly have no problem asking Republicans about the whereabouts of their masks.
“During a press conference speaking out against Democrats trying to eliminate the filibuster, a reporter questioned Cruz about him and his fellow Republicans not wearing masks. Cruz quickly shot down the question and angrily asked why the ‘questions are only directed at one side’ on masks,” Fox News reports.
“I think there’s been wild hypocrisy from the Biden administration when it comes to COVID policies. Whether it’s mask mandates…vaccine mandates…Dr. Fauci’s been all over the map on it…At some point the American people should be able to exercise their own freedom and make their decision,” Cruz said.
“And by the way, on the question of hypocrisy, you just asked, you people at the podium are speaking without masks. Just once, I’d like to see a reporter say to Joe Biden when he stands at the damn podium in the White House without a mask, ‘Mr. President, why aren’t you wearing a mask?'” Cruz said angrily. “Just once, I’d like to see you say to Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, when she stands at the podium with no mask, ‘Ms. Psaki, why don’t you have a mask?’ The questions are only directed at one side, and I got to say that the American people see the hypocrisy.”
