O'Rourke slams Cruz for video of border visit

O’Rourke, who unsuccessfully ran against Cruz for his seat in 2018, responded to the videos in a lengthy Twitter thread Friday, writing, “The only threat you face is unarmed children and families who are seeking asylum (as well as the occasional heckler).”

“If you’re looking for a crisis to cosplay Senator for, I’m happy to point you in the right direction,” O’Rourke added.

The Democrat then went on to outline a series of other issues facing Texans, including telling Cruz, “The state you ‘represent’ in the Senate is the least insured in the nation.”

“That means your constituents are dying of diabetes, curable cancers and the flu (as well as 50,000 from Covid in the last year alone) because they can’t afford a doctor or medicine,” O’Rourke added.
