Ted Cruz Wins Twitter on Friday With Brilliant Response to Silly Troll

Published

on

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has not stopped making waves since she first grabbed her surprise primary victory against longtime NY Rep. Joseph Crowly.

Not necessarily because she’s captivating and charismatic, but mostly because she tows the “let’s give everyone free stuff” party line and gives conservatives endless fodder for mockery with her spacy, uninformed answers to debate questions.

Speaking of debate, she found her name in the headlines once again this week when Ben Shapiro, who had made a satirical mock-interview using spliced footage of her, invited her to a debate.

His invitation came after Ocasio-Cortez had called Shapiro and conservative Allie Stuckey, who originated the mock-interview with Ocasio-Cortez, “scared” of her for their videos, which she tried to pass off as faked, rather than satirical.

Yeah. Conservatives are just shaking in their boots at someone who can’t even understand comedy. Right.

Long story short, instead of politely decline Shapiro’s invitation to debate, which was made in earnest, she actually compared it to catcalling. 

No. Seriously. Take a look:

Enter Cenk Ugyer, host of “The Young Turks”, who apparently saw this as an opportunity to get some attention of his own.

Yeah, it didn’t work.

“This whole @benshapiro offer todebate @Ocasio2018 issue is ridiculous and shows the bias of the media in favor of the right-wing,” he wrote (first of all, BAHAHAHAHA. Second of all…what media is he even talking about? And third…how does an invitation from a single commentator show media bias? So many things going on here, and all of them wrong.”

“Fine,” he continued, “I offer the same $10,000 to debate @tedcruz. Not joking. Guaranteed it gets no coverage. Why won’t the bumbling coward Ted Cruz debate me?!”

Well, it didn’t take long for his pathetic attempt to be clever to fall flat, when Ted Cruz replied using Ocasio-Cortez logic:

Well played, Senator. Well played.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
