Republican Senator Ted Cruz got cocky and angry with a reporter this week after he was asked to put on a face mask while addressing the crowd. Cruz retorted that he and all of his friends (Republican lawmakers) behind him had been vaccinated, and that he would absolutely not be wearing a mask on TV. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains why Ted Cruz is, once again, wrong about everything.
