However, the 50-year-old might have outdone himself with a tweet that he posted on Tuesday in response to a so-called ‘woke’ CIA recruitment video that has attracted a lot of derision from US conservatives.
The video was originally posted by the CIA in March but has gained more attention after being shared on Twitter and attracting criticism for the type of language used in the clip, which has been labelled as ‘woke.’
Cruz quote retweeted the video with a peculiar question: “If you’re a Chinese communist, or an Iranian Mullah, or Kim Jong Un...would this scare you?” This odd line of questioning was made even stranger with Cruz’s next line: “We’ve come a long way from Jason Bourne.”
