Sen. Ted Cruz Rages Over “Kremlin Cruz” Nickname

The Hill reports:

Sen. Ted Cruz(R-Texas) tore into journalist Brian Williams after the MSNBC anchor dubbed the lawmaker “Kremlin Cruz” during a segment last week. The dust-up came after Cruz criticized a video put out by the Pentagon telling the story of a recruit who marched for marriage equality before joining the armed forces.

The senator called it “woke” and “emasculating” to the U.S. military and shared his comment along with a Russian propaganda video depicting members of its military as strong and masculine.
