Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) went from correctly calling the Capitol insurrection a terrorist attack to apologizing profusely for the remark on Fox News, leading CNN hosts to compare him to the ‘Game of Thrones’ character Reek.
During the first anniversary of the attack on our Capitol by Trump supporters in their scheme to overthrow democracy, Cruz initially showed some spine by referring to the insurrection as a terrorist attack. As we all know, Cruz helped incite the insurrection and even voted to overturn the election despite the violence. He has since downplayed the attack at every turn, except for that brief moment on Thursday.
But Cruz quickly shrunk from the moment again by appearing on Fox News to beg Trump supporters for forgiveness. This is not the first time Cruz has demonstrated his cowardice in the face of Donald Trump and his supporters. Cruz notoriously refused to stand up for his own wife and father after Trump repeatedly humiliated them during the 2016 campaign.
His showing on Fox News drew comparisons to Reek, also known as Theon Greyjoy, from Game of Thrones. The character assumes a subservient role after being tortured and mutilated by one of the series’ villains. Basically, Theon loses his manhood if you get the gist.
CNN host John Berman couldn’t help but see the similarity.
“Can I just say one more thing about Ted Cruz there,” Berman said. “It’s like 7:28 a.m. — Ted Cruz, do you know where your spine is? I thought he handled it better in ‘Game of Thrones’ when he was Theon Greyjoy to Ramsey Bolton, there. Honestly, that was like Reek, it was like the same as watching Reek in ‘Game of Thrones’ there, how he was addressing him. The power structure there.”
Berman’s co-host Brianna Keilar agreed that the comparison fit.
“Did you just call him Reek?” Keilar asked. “That is such an apt metaphor.”
“Well, if the shoe fits or the codpiece fits,” Berman doubled down.
“I don’t know. I think that, you know, Tucker Carlson will be picking his teeth this morning with Ted Cruz’s spine, is sort of what I think,” Keilar said.
Here’s the video via YouTube:
Ted Cruz is weak and cowardly and he does not deserve the honor of being a member of the Senate. He helped instigate the insurrection on January 6th last year and he continues to fail the Constitution to this day. The comparison to Reek fits perfectly and is rightfully deserved. His family should be ashamed of him.
