After all, Fredo threw a hissy match as a result of Cruz made an look on FNC’s Hannity and griped  consider his reasoning for going to Cancun, Mexico: “Why not? In our present local weather, his — the proper’s going to consider him. You already know he’ll go on. He will say, ‘I used to be going to make money working from home. And the way dare they? They do not care about something. They’re the worst. And the media’s the worst.’ And he’s going to get a move.”

As a result of Texas is in a lot bother,” he proclaimed as if he was being man.

We all know that’s a lie as a result of Fredo has a private animus in opposition to the Senator.

Chris additionally lashed out at Cruz with certainly one of his no-so intelligent nicknames: COVIDiot. And through his present, he repeatedly introduced up Cruz and did a phase about what was occurring.

And within the final present of hypocrisy, he bought all preachy about how “there’s such myopia” between the left and the proper. “If the individual’s in your staff, you’ve one feeling. In the event that they’re on the opposite staff, it is — , it is Thunderdome.”
