Carlson Has A Tense Exchange With Cruz Over His Jan 6th Talking Points!!

Ted Cruz (R-TX) appeared on Fox News Thursday night for a heated interview in which presenter Tucker Carlson basically labeled the senator a liar, according to Cruz’s office.

Carlson ripped at Cruz on Wednesday after the senator referred to the protests in the Capitol as a “terrorist strike.” Cruz, according to Carlson, was just repeating partisan talking points.

Earlier this week, Cruz had said, “We are nearing a sad anniversary.” This year marks the anniversary of a deadly terrorist assault on the Capitol, during which we saw law enforcement officers display amazing heroism, incredible bravery, and sacrifice their lives in order to protect the men and women who work in this building.

This year’s anniversary of the Jan. 6 Capitol incident brought the Texas senator to Carlson’s show, where he explained his position to him.

“Thank you very much for coming on, Senator. I appreciate it.” Members of Congress are littered with dubious individuals. Then Carlson clarified, “You are not one of them.” The following statement: “I believe you are more intelligent than I am.” Also, your language is never haphazard. Undesirably, you labeled this a terrorist attack, despite the fact that it did not meet any of the criteria of terrorism. Obviously, this is a fabrication. “I believe you uttered that untruth on purpose, and I’m curious as to why.”

Thanks for having me on Tucker,” Cruz expressed gratitude for the opportunity. “After your show aired last night, I immediately wrote you a text message saying, ‘Listen, I’d want to continue because the way I expressed things yesterday was sloppy and simply idiotic.'”

After Cruz had finished speaking, Carlson slammed his mouth shut and attacked him.

That was stopped by Carlson, who said, “I don’t buy it.” Since before you were a senator, I’ve known you for a long time. ” The Supreme Court was one of your potential opponents. Every man who has ever served in the Senate, including you, takes his words as seriously as he does his own. Every time you said it, you repeated the sentence, and I don’t think you did it by mistake. Simply put, I don’t,” says the author.

Despite Cruz’s repeated attempts to clarify that his statements were in reference to those who attack police officers, Carlson snubbed him once again, this time stating:

“Hold on, what you just said doesn’t make sense. So, If somebody assaults a cop, he should be charged and go to jail, I couldn’t agree more. We have said that for years. But that person is still not a terrorist,” panned Carlson during his questioning. “How many people have been charged with terrorism on Jan. 6? Like, why did you use that word? You’re playing into the other side’s characterization that… allows them to define an entire population as foreign combatants, and you know that, so why did you do it?” Carlson continued to poke.

Clarification: Cruz attempted to explain that his argument was the result of an error in communication due to an incorrect choice of words on his side, but Carlson decided that he did not trust the senator.

“I suppose it’s simply that I don’t believe you,” Carlson said in response. In all seriousness, I mean that with respect, since I have great admiration for your acuteness and clarity.”

A few minutes before the conclusion of their interview, Cruz reminded Carlson of his previous battles with Democrats over some of their language surrounding the Capitol incident. He then reminded the presenter that he was one of the senators who voted against certifying the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Cruz was thanked for appearing on Carlson’s program at the conclusion of the conversation.
