After encountering a huge backlash from conservatives for describing the events of January 6th 2021 as a “violent terrorist attack,” Senator Ted Cruz apologised and admitted that his language was “dumb” and “sloppy”.

Cruz appeared on Tucker Carlson’s evening show Thursday, apparently at his own request, and attempted to back track on what he said, claiming that he’d been referring to attacks on police.

Carlson said to Cruz “There are a lot of dumb people in the Congress. You are not one of them. I think you’re smarter than I am. And you never use words carelessly. And yet you called this a terror attack when by no definition was it a terror attack. That’s a lie. You told that lie on purpose, and I’m wondering why you did.”

Cruz responded “When you aired your episode last night, I sent you a text shortly thereafter and said listen, I would like to go on because the way I phrased things yesterday, it was sloppy, and it was frankly dumb.”

Carlson interjected, urging “Look, I’ve known you a long time. Since before you went to the Senate, you’re a Supreme court contender. You take words as seriously as any man who’s ever served in the Senate. And every word you repeated that phrase. I do not believe that you use that accidentally. I just don’t.”

Cruz again described his language as “a poor choice of words,” claiming that “as a result of my sloppy phrasing, it’s caused a lot of people to misunderstand what I meant.”

“Let me tell you what I meant,” The Senator continued, explaining “What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers. I think you and I both agree that if you assault a police officer, you should go to jail.”

“That’s who I was talking about. And the reason the phrasing was sloppy is I have talked dozens if not hundreds of times, I’ve drawn a distinction. I wasn’t saying that the thousands of peaceful protestors supporting Donald Trump are somehow terrorists. I wasn’t saying the millions of patriots across the country, supporting president Trump are terrorists,” Cruz declared, adding “And that’s what a lot of people have misunderstood that.”

Carlson continued to say he doesn’t believe Cruz. “Hold on a second,” the host shot back, noting “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’s still not a terrorist. How many people have been charged with terrorism on January 6?”

Carlson continued, “Like why’d you use that word? You’re playing into the other side’s characterization, that… allows them to define an entire population as foreiegn combatants. And you know that so why’d you do it?”

Cruz responded, “The reason I’ve used that word for a decade, I have referred to people who violently assault police officers as terrorists. I’ve done so over and over and over again. If you look at all the assaults we’ve seen across the country, I’ve called that terrorism over and over again.”

The Senator continued, “That being said, Tucker, I agree with you. It was a mistake to say that yesterday. And the reason is what you just said, which is we’ve now had a year of Democrats in the media, twisting words, and trying to say that all of us are terrorists trying to say you’re a terrorist, I’m a terrorist.”

“And so look, I don’t like people who assault cops and, and, and I stand up and defend cops,” Cruz carried on, adding “The reason I use that word is that’s the word I’ve always used for people that violently attack cops. But in this context, I get why people were angry because we’ve had a year of the corrupt corporate media and Democrats claiming anyone who objected to the election fraud.”

“I guess I just don’t believe you,” Carlson said. “And I mean that with respect because I have such respect for your acuity and your precision.”

Cruz also tweeted the interview out, saying his words were dumb:

    Video: Biden Gets Lost On A Stage YET AGAIN

    Watch him

    Joe Biden managed to get lost on a stage Thursday, right in front of the steps he climbed up, for the umpteenth time in the past fortnight.

    Biden had just finished short remarks at the Global Fund Conference in New York and doddered around the stage seemingly completely lost, gesturing to handlers for support about how to get down.

    This incident comes after his appearance on 60 Minutes just a few days ago where he was questioned about concerns whether he is mentally fit to be in office. Biden encouraged people to “watch me.”

    So lets watch him:

    This is happening every time he gets on a stage now.

    Last week it happened three times:

    Why can’t he ever remember where he is?

    Jared Kushner Criticizes Ron DeSantis Over Martha’s Vineyard Migrant Flights

    Says he was ‘troubled’ by the stunt.

    Former White House advisor Jared Kushner criticized Ron DeSantis over the Florida Governor’s migrant flights to to Martha’s Vineyard, claiming he was ‘troubled’ by the situation.

    DeSantis carried out one of the greatest political stunts in modern history last week when he sent 50 illegal Venezuelan migrants to the wealthy, elitist island.

    After completely wetting the bed over the development and declaring a “humanitarian crisis,” political leaders ensured the migrants were swiftly deported to a military base within 48 hours.

    Apparently, diversity isn’t a strength when it happens in their backyard.

    The backlash against DeSantis by frothing leftists then began, with the Florida Governor being accused of human trafficking and placed under criminal investigation.

    However, a somewhat unexpected critic of DeSantis is Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law and a former White House advisor.

    Kushner appeared on Fox News’ Outnumbered to blast DeSantis over the stunt.

    “I personally watch what’s happening, and it’s very hard to see at the southern border, I also—we have to remember that these are human beings, they’re people, so seeing them being used as political pawns one way or the other is very troubling to me,” said Kushner.

    However, he didn’t have much criticism for Joe Biden for using migrants as political pawns to flood America, 4.9 million of whom have crossed the border since he came to power, paving the way for demographic changes that will permanently alter the country.

    Kushner’s comments only further drive suspicions held by many Trump supporters that he was a globalist plant within the Trump administration all along.

    The New York Times noted how Kushner “washed his hands of Donald Trump before Jan. 6,” while a book claimed that the advisor “hid from Trump” after the riot.

    In the final days of the Trump administration, Kushner was reportedly looking forward to returning to his former life.
