Reporter Asks Cruz To Wear Mask At Presser — Demolishes Him With 8 Words: ‘You’re Welcome To Step Away If You’d Like’

Ted Cruz dismissed a request to adhere to wearing a mask during a press conference, according to Fox News.

Cruz was stopped before he could speak by a reporter that asked, “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…”

“You’re welcome to step away if you’d like,” Cruz said. “The whole point of the vaccine — CDC guidance is what we’re following.”

“This is exactly how to respond to a performative virtue signaling reporter pretending to be scared of a vaccinated politician,” Cabot Phillips said.

Conservatives praised Cruz and mocked the reporter on social media.

“Like a boss,” radio host Derek Hunter reacted.

“‘It would make us feel better’ = muh feelings matter more than science,” Spectator USA editor Amber Athey tweeted.

Cruz himself later tweeted, “Lefty reporters have lost their minds. #commonsense”
