Liz Cheney says it would be 'very difficult' to support Ted Cruz …
Texas Republican Ted Cruz has been compared to a “flat Earther” by Geraldo Rivera for again falsely claiming that Donald Trump won the presidential election.
Fox News host Rivera, who is himself a conservative, criticised the Texas senator for repeating the bogus claims around the 2020 election. Cruz is one of many Republicans who have perpetuated the so-called "Big Lie" and caused many Trump supporters to wrongly believe the election was undemocratic.
In a tweet, Rivera compared the claim that Trump had the election stolen from him with the bizarre conspiracy theory that the Earth is flat.
He also specifically called out Cruz and his colleague, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley, for repeating it and said they both jam up the “bulls**t filter”.
Rivera wrote: “Election Deniers-who really believe 2020 was stolen-are lost causes. I feel sorry for them, but they’ve decided the world is flat.
“Much worse: those who know better but support the Big Lie anyway. Like Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley. Everything they say should jam the bulls**t filter.”
