Ted Cruz To Live-Debate Alyssa Milano On Gun Rights


Actress-turned liberal activist Alyssa Milano is back. 

This time, she’s challenging Sen. Ted Cruz to a debate on gun rights!

And, Mr. Cruz has accepted!

This should be entertaining.

On Sunday, Alyssa Milano posted this cheeky tweet to Twitter:

Ted Cruz took it upon himself to respond, very logically and throughly to Ms. Milano's question in a Twitter thread, which you can read here:

Faced with real logic, which liberals seem to be unfamiliar with, Alyssa Milano did not respond to Cruz directly.

Instead, she just implied he was spouting "bullsh*t" and asked to do a live-stream debate with Cruz!


Ted Cruz happily accepted, and it appears that this is really going to happen, judging by his and Milano's Twitter exchange:

CBS News has more details on Ted Cruz and Alyssa Milano's apparently upcoming debate:

Texas GOP Senator Ted Cruz says he'd be "happy" to meet with actress and activist Alyssa Milano to talk through their differences on guns. After Cruz and Milano tangled over guns and the Bible on Twitter, Milano proposed a meeting with the lawmaker when she visits Washington next week. 

"I'd love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," Milano tweeted. 

"Also, 1 Peter 4:8," she added, a reference to a Bible passage that reads, "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." The actress suggested live streaming the meeting so the public could "hear your bull**** first hand."

The liberal actress and activist has made frequent stops to the U.S Capitol lately to speak with lawmakers and participate in demonstrations against strict abortion bans, Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation and the rise in gun violence across the country. 

While he didn't address the more colorful language in Milano's tweet, Cruz said he's open to a peaceful meeting. He tweeted in response that he'd be willing to "unite to stop gun violence."

"If we can have a civil and positive conversation — in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest — despite our political differences that might help resolve the discord in our nation," Cruz added. Like President Trump, the Texas Republican argues that mental illness often plays a "critical role" in the rise in mass shooting events. 

"People who commit sick acts of mass murder like this are often dealing with very severe mental illness," Cruz told CBS Newsin the fallout of the El Paso, Texas Walmart shooting last month.

USA Today also said:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told actress Alyssa Milano that he would be “happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution” after the two have had disagreements over guns and the Bible on Twitter.

Milano has been active in politics in the last year, demonstrating and speaking out against abortion bans, Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination and being an early online voice in driving the #MeToo hashtag.

Milano has been active on Capitol Hill in the past, and proposed a meeting with the conservative Texas lawmaker when she visits Washington next week.

"I'd love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," the actress tweeted Monday. 

If Milano doesn't back out of the debate, will you be tuning in?
