Trevor Noah lambasted Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Monday for showing to vary his thoughts about Texas power regulation after utilities charged as much as $17,000 for warmth throughout final week’s brutal chilly siege. (Watch the video under.)
“The Daily Show” host pointed to a 2019 tweet through which Cruz bragged that the “success of TX power … was constructed over a few years on ideas of free enterprise & low regulation.”
However Cruz ― going through a PR nightmare after his journey to Cancun to flee the tough circumstances and rush residence for injury management ― “has found that regulation may not be so dangerous,” Noah mentioned.
The host highlighted a Cruz tweet from Sunday expressing outrage on the value gouging. “That is WRONG,” the embattled lawmaker wrote. “No energy firm ought to get a windfall due to a pure catastrophe.” He referred to as the “ridiculous fee will increase” an “injustice.”
In a mock accent as Cruz, Noah cracked: “The one Texan that must be getting hammered is me ― on the resort bar in Cancun.”
Noah reverted again to his personal voice and declared: “So Ted Cruz has reversed his stand on regulation prefer it was a flight path to Mexico.”
Quick-forward to the three:00 mark for Noah’s takedown of Cruz.
