Democrats Reduced To Making Fun Of Ted Cruz As A Canadian. Eh

Don’t worry, Democrats will surely pivot back to their normal talking points about throwing grandma off the cliff, the war on women, and Conservatives being the real terrorists very shortly

(Fox News) Democrats have unveiled a new weapon against Ted Cruz: Canada jokes.

The Canadian-born American citizen, and Republican presidential candidate, was the butt of two north-of-the-border jabs this week.

First, a tweet from the official Twitter account of the Democratic Party

Alas, nothing from Democrats about the massive number of shootings in the cities they run, like Baltimore, Chicago, Newark, St. Louis, etc

Then on Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest invoked Cruz again as he celebrated his hometown Kansas City Royals reaching the American League Championship Series where they will face the Toronto Blue Jays.

“I certainly was pleased to see the Royals advance by defeating the Houston Astros last night, and they’re ready to take on Ted Cruz’s other hometown team, the Toronto Blue Jays, next,” Earnest said to laughter from the press corps.

Of course, Cruz was actually born in Calgary, and, one has to wonder if this is appropriate behavior from the Press Secretary of the President of the United States of America. There’s no reason to get Offended, though, because people on the political right can take a joke. And Senator Cruz’s office decided not to respond to this silliness, nor did Senator Cruz respond himself.

“I think this is just sort of like, ‘Don’t worry we’re going to raise this if you become the nominee we’re going to make an issue of this’ even though the history and the precedent of the Naturalization Act of 1790 makes it pretty clear that this would be perfectly OK,” columnist Liz Peek told FoxNews.com LIVE. “So I don’t think it’s totally a jest.”

Democrats rarely do anything in jest. They’ve trotted out Ted Cruz Birtherism many, many times, and, let’s face it, Liberals are very humorless people, who think jokes about stabbing Skeptics with icicles and assassination chic are the height of funny. So, yeah, don’t think this is totally in jest.

And, imagine had high ranking Republicans said something similar about a Democrat. Imagine how Offended they would be, and the calls for resignation.
