Ted Cruz’s sense of humor is highly underrated.
Cruz brilliantly used humor to lighten up a fired up crowd at the 2015 Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C., on Friday, opening up by walking over to a teleprompter, grabbing it, and asking, “What are these things?” to loud chuckles from the audience. “Is Barack Obama comin’?” he asked jokingly, referring to the stuttering and stammering Marxist president’s overreliance on using teleprompters when speaking, a crutch Cruz has no need for.
Ted Cruz continued mocking Obama in good-hearted humor, taking aim at Obama’s well-documented case of extreme narcissism, tying in the pope’s visit to Washington.
“You know there’s an ancient Chinese curse, ‘May you live in interesting times,’ Cruz continued. “These are interesting times. Yesterday, Pope Francis was in Washington. Wonderful to welcome him here — I have to say the press conference was a little awkward. Because everytime the reporters addressed to ‘Your Holiness,’ Barack Obama answered,” Cruz jabbed, again to loud cheers and laughter.
Cruz then made light of leftist Obama’s extremism, making the point that between the the president of China and Obama, Obama was was further to the left.
“And then today, the president of China, President Xi in in town. Media all across the world are reporting on this historic meeting or the world’s most powerful communist and the president of China.”
And the Values Voter Summit crowd ate it up, shouting with laughter in approval of the joke, not to mention Cruz himself breaking out in a belly-laugh.
Cruz then launched a well-aimed missile at Democrat frontrunner, scandal plagued Hillary Clinton, mired down in her latest scandal, Emailgate, while still having the unresolved Benghazi tragedy hanging over her head, and is under criminal investigation by the FBI.
“You know, in a few months we just may see the first presidential debate held at Leavenworth [federal penitentiary],” Cruz quipped. “You know, if they can project a rainbow on the White House, maybe they could put bars on the windows,” he said.
Cruz applauded Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, who planned and organized the annual event, one of the top conservative meetings in the nation, saying that Perkins, “scares the living daylights out of Washington,” before weaving in the stunning news today about the abrupt resignation of RINO Surrender Caucus leader, Speaker of the House John Boehner from Congress.
“But I have to tell you, Tony doesn’t scare Washington nearly as much as the men and women gathered in this ballroom do. You want to know how much each of you terrify Washington? Yesterday, John Boehner was speaker of the house (loud applause). You all come to town and somehow that changes (more applause). My only request is, ‘Can you come more often?'”
Cruz joked that if something so great as Boehner’s resignation happens everytime this group of enthusiastic conservatives come to Washington, D.C., then the meetings should should be much more frequent than just once per year.
“Tony, we need to schedule these weekly — once a week!” Cruz shouted.
Perhaps they could hold one next weekend and RINO “Leader,” Obama’s Mitch McConnell could resign as well. One can only hope!
After Cruz’s hilarious jokes, he goes into the first actions he would take as president, including shredding Obama’s unconstitutional and dictatorial executive orders, ripping up the Iran nuclear deal, defunding Obamacare, and abolishing the IRS, all promises that thunderous approval from the audience.
