Ted Cruz’s interview on ‘The View’ was interrupted by protesters: NPR


Ted Cruz's interview on 'The View' was interrupted by protesters: NPR

Members of the public interrupted Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, during an interview on Monday’s episode of Viewdemanding that he tackle climate change.

The demonstrators repeatedly shouted: “Vote for the climate now! while Cruz was talking about inflation in the United States. As the shouting continued, show co-host Whoopi Goldberg urged protesters to shut up, saying during the live stream: “Let us do our job. We hear what you have to say. , but you have to go.”

Cruz called the protesters “climate radicals” on Fox News, but said it was important for him to reach Americans who don’t typically consume media through parties.

“I think it’s important that conservatives go much further than just preaching the choir,” Cruz told Fox News. “We need to reach a large number of viewers of View [who] only saw one partisan story all the time.”

When asked if President Joe Biden was legitimately elected, Cruz avoided answering the question. Cruz was one of more than a dozen GOP senators to challenge the legitimacy of the 2020 presidential election, calling for investigations into potential voter fraud. He instead refocused his response to accuse reporters on television of trying to get Republicans to admit the election was fair.

“There are a lot of people in the media who try — every time a Republican is in front of a TV camera — trying to say the election was fair and square and legitimate. You know who you don’t do that to? You don’t do it to Hillary Clinton, who stood up and said, ‘Trump stole the election,'” Cruz said View hosts.

The interview came a day after Yankees fans booed and waved the middle finger at Cruz during a Yankees game against the Houston Astros.

“Get out of New York!” shouted a fan. Another one shouted“Go back to Cancun!”

Cruz has come under fire for vacationing in Cancun, Mexico during the height of the pandemic in February 2021 and amid a deadly winter storm that left many people without water or power in Texas.
