Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is growing terrified of his political opponent Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) as he’s come as close as one point away from the Republican senator, according to the latest poll.
In an attempt to make O’Rourke look bad Cruz took the low route and shared an edited video of the Democrat answering a question about kneeling during the national anthem to peacefully protest.
O’Rourke answered honestly and said that kneeling during the national anthem is very American because they are using their first amendment rights to protest racial inequality.
But Cruz’s campaign edited a video to make it seem as if O’Rourke did not care about the country.
The Republican Senator shared the video below where he made it seem as if O’Rourke was for burning and desecrating the American flag.
We decided to do Cruz a favor and share the video below showing O’Rourke’s actual remarks when asked about the kneeling during the national anthem.
