On Saturday, the Associated Press declared that former Vice President Joe Biden had won the 2020 presidential election, and that he would be set to take the oath of office on January 20th.
As we all know now, (and likely assumed beforehand), this didn’t sit well with President Donald Trump, and the Commander in Chief now appears focused on remaining in the White House through a series of investigations and recounts.
Some of Trump’s staunchest supporters have remained loyally by his side in all this, including Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz.
The latter got an earful from Fox News’ Chris Wallace on the subject.
Fox News’s Chris Wallace compared Sen. Ted Cruz to a Japanese soldier who continued fighting World War II after it ended because the Texas Republican is questioning the votes from last Tuesday’s election.
“It would seem to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill have a role to play in this. A very few of them have said, look, you pursue your legal options, but, you know, damp down the rhetoric, like Mitt Romney, like Pat Toomey,” Wallace said on Sunday.
“There are a lot who are just silent. And then there are some, I mentioned Ted Cruz, you know who are like the Japanese soldiers who come out 30 years after the war, out of the jungle, and say, ‘Is the fight still going on?’”
Wallace has been a frequent target of the ire of Trump supporters, who haven’t taken kindly to his grilling of the President in recent weeks. This latest tiff with Ted Cruz certainly won’t help him in that regard.
