Ted Cruz lets her have it.
In a phone interview with Fox News, the senator ripped into President Biden’s handling of the border crisis before blasting Ocasio-Cortez for the crying photo she took near a Texas border facility under former President Trump.
The senator challenged Biden, Ocasio-Cortez, Vice President Harris and other Democrats to travel to the southern border and see the “Biden cages” for themselves.
“I challenge every one of them: I challenge Biden, I challenge Harris, I challenge AOC, who famously had a picture of her pretending to cry in front of a cage with children,” Cruz said. “Come down to the Biden cages now, which are bigger and more full.”
“Let’s see AOC cry in front of the Biden cages. Let’s see Joe Biden or Kamala Harris or [White House press secretary] Jen Psaki say ‘there is no border crisis’ as we stand in front of the Biden cages,” the senator continued.
“They are lying and they’re counting on the media to cover up their lies, and it’s incredibly cynical and it’s wrong,” he added.
The Texas senator also noted in the interview that the “manmade” crisis could be alleviated by going “back to the policies that work” that were instituted under the president’s predecessor.
