Patron saint of dumb ideas Ted Cruz is getting a taste of his own medicine on Twitter this week.Cruz apparently thinks the recent threat on Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s life was inspired by “deranged rhetoric” from the left.
This is being responded to online by people mockingly attributing the threat to the same thing Cruz attributed the Uvalde shooting to last month: Kavanaugh must have too many doors.Related: Pete Buttigieg slams Ted Cruz’s obsession with doors in the wake of school shootingContext: In the days following the Uvalde shooting, Cruz’ team cooked up the brilliant idea of blaming the tragedy on the school having more than one entry point.Sen.

If that had happened.. when that psychopath had arrived, the armed police officers could’ve taken him out… pic.twitter.com/YnOCDs9GAZ— Acyn (@Acyn) May 25, 2022Well, now that he seems to have completely abandoned Uvalde (and the other numerous instances of gun violence since) in favor of hand-wringing over one threat to Brett Kavanaugh, people on Twitter are all too happy to remind him what the real threat is.Tell him to move to a house with one door.
