Texas Senator Ted Cruz, sounding off on the criticism of his parents for showing the Hitler salute, said the move as an individual is his personal business.
Cruz told TUCKER Carlson: “Someone can walk out of a restaurant and make a political statement, or wear a T-shirt with a political message, or use their free speech rights without retribution from any other people or any other government.”
On why his parents didn’t apologize to those offended by the swastika, Cruz said his dad is a great storyteller and they are “in awe” of the fact that World War II started in Berlin and their son was born there when his mom was pregnant.
Cruz also suggested he didn’t initially care for the character of Joe Biden whom he called “an avid fan” of Barack Obama, calling him “the most partisan” vice president in history.
Cruz also said the Trump-Pence administration does “an extraordinary job” and said many in the Senate are “willing to cede [the issue of America becoming] second-class citizens.”
Cruz’s interview airs this week on “THE ED SHOW”
