Ted Cruz Gives Epic Response to Reporter Asking Him to Wear a Mask: “You’re Welcome to Step Away”


Americans are sick of the theatrical show being put on by democrats and the media in regards to mask wearing.

Even as many Americans have already recieved the coronavirus vaccine, others are still being shamed for not wearing masks. 

Ted Cruz just layed the verbal smackdown on a reporter trying to shame him into wearing a mask during a Senate press conference.

Before Cruz began to speak, the reporter asked: “Would you mind putting on a mask for us?”

Cruz responded brilliantly:

“Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera, I’m not going to wear a mask.” 

“All of us have been immunized.”

The reporter then snapped back:

“It’d make us feel better,” 

Cruz simply responded: 

“You’re welcome to step away, if you’d like.”

Fox News has more on the the epic response from Ted Cruz:

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas., was quick to dismiss a reporter's request that he wear a mask during a Senate presser on Wednesday.

Cruz stepped up to the microphones, but was stopped before he could speak by the unidentified reporter asking, "Would you mind putting on a mask for us?"

"Yeah, when I’m talking to the TV camera, I’m not going to wear a mask," Cruz responded. "All of us have been immunized, so..."

"It’d make us feel better," the reporter is heard replying.

"You’re welcome to step away if you’d like," Cruz said before chuckling. "The whole point of the vaccine -- CDC guidance is what we're following."

Ted Cruz's Response to a Reporter Asking Him to Wear a Mask was Priceless

The New York Post with more:

Cruz maintained his position after the incident was broadcast on C-Span — and subsequently, in the Twittersphere — writing on the social media platform, “Lefty reporters have lost their minds.”

Cruz is not the first famous political figure to face criticism recently for not wearing a mask while speaking to the media.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki was forced to defend her position of not wearing a mask while speaking from the briefing room podium earlier this year.

Speaking to the New York Times in January, Psaki argued, “If health and medical experts told me I should wear a mask while I was briefing, I would do it.

“But I am following the guidelines they are giving us, as is the president.”

Members of Congress, as well as their staffers, have been fully inoculated with one of the COVID-19 vaccines since late December.
