Senator Cruz and Menendez Battle It Out in Senate Committee Meeting

During a recent Senate Foreign Affairs Committee meeting, things got a little heated between Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Chairman Bob Menendez (D-N.J.).

Cruz was in the middle of a sentence when Menendez cut him off.

This led to a rather epic exchange, of which I have to say Cruz got the better of Menendez.

The Battle

Cruz was in the middle of responding to Democrat comments regarding the withholding of $130 million in aid to Egypt.

The money is apparently being held back per a demand to release 16 prisoners on humanitarian grounds.

(Side note: when Trump held back congressionally-approved aid, Democrats lost their minds and wanted to use it against him in impeachment hearings as an abuse of power).

Cruz had just started his reply, stating that the Chair had “observed that, yes, the Biden administration is holding hostage $130 million for Egypt and demanding that 16 people be released from prison.”

Menendez seemed to have misheard what Cruz was saying, and he immediately interrupted.

He stated, “Don’t put words in my mouth that I didn’t say.

“I did not say anybody was holding anyone hostage,”

That, however, is not what Cruz said.

Watch the exchange for yourself and tell me who you think got the best of this…

Cruz’s point was that the administration needs to release the names of the prisoners so that Americans can see who they are, as Cruz clearly believes they are extremists that should remain in prison…

Now, I don’t know about you, but I think I would like to see that list now.

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
