The two faces of Ted Cruz

Screenshot from a Washington Post video.

It didn't even take one day for Sen. Ted Cruz to walk back his inflammatory statements before the deadly Capitol riots, where MAGA terrorists stormed the seat of government. And he wasn't alone: Sen. Lindsey Graham and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, among others, suddenly tried to find weasel words that would save their damaged reputations. The Washington Post's JM Rieger created this clever mashup of incriminating video.

As usual, these craven characters are more concerned for own hides than the country, the Constitution, democracy, or even the autocrat who they have sedulously supported for years. They have no integrity and never did, but at least they're darkly comical. See for yourself.
