The Daily Wire: Obama Fires At Trump Over Coronavirus. Cruz Turns Attack Straight Toward Biden, Pelosi.News|4.1.20
Apparently Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has watched the classic film “The Hunt for Red October,” in which the Soviet submarine V. K. Konovalov launches a torpedo at the defecting Red October submarine but the torpedo ultimately winds up destroying the V. K. Konovalov itself.
On Tuesday, seizing upon a story in the Los Angeles Times that slammed the Trump administration for relaxing gas mileage and emissions requirements for auto manufacturers, former President Barack Obama took a shot at President Trump and his administration as Obama targeted the youth vote for 2020.
But he didn’t reckon with Cruz (R-TX) who took Obama’s words and deftly turned them into an attack on former Vice President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Obama tweeted: “We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”
Cruz turned the missile headed for Trump and the GOP and reversed its path so it wound up targeting Biden and Pelosi, tweeting: “Bold: Obama calls for the overwhelming electoral defeat of Joe Biden & Nancy Pelosi, after they opposed & demagogued Trump’s China travel ban, which helped slow the coronavirus pandemic.”
