Senator Ted Cruz FOUGHT BACK at a reporter on Wednesday after they asked him to put a mask on during a press conference.
As the Senator stepped up to the microphones that reporters were holding, one of the reporters stopped Cruz and asked him to put a mask on before speaking.
“Would you mind putting on a mask for us?” The reporter asked before Cruz shot a QUICK rebuttal back.
“Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera, I’m not going to wear a mask. All of us have been immunized, so…” Cruz said in a response to the reporter who’s identity has yet to be discovered.

“It’d make us feel better,” the reporter said back to Cruz.
“You’re welcome to step away if you’d like. The whole point of the vaccine — CDC guidance is what we’re following,” the Texas Senator said citing the scientific facts and chuckling about the hypocrisy in the media.

This is exactly how to respond to a performative virtue signaling reporter pretending to be scared of a vaccinated politician https://t.co/rJ0L5gpFOi

The press secretary literally hasnt worn a mask every day for 2 months…
And not ever even questioned about it…

Actually, when they talk on camera I prefer no mask so they can be understood clearly. Hearing people speak through that mask is a pain.

These reporters love to virtue signal. When they aren't around the public they don't care as much.
