There were only a few ways Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) could react to HBO’s “True Blood” portrayal of Texas Republicans being viciously murdered at a fictitious Cruz fundraiser.
He could have ignored it, or laughed it off. But he went political.
A scene in Sunday’s episode took place at the George W. Bush Presidential Library, where a Cruz function was being held. The vampires who went made disparaging comments about the Republicans in attendance (What do you expect? It’s Hollywood.) and then there was a gruesome bloodbath. (We admittedly do not watch “True Blood,” so we can’t offer further context, but we know it’s a show about vampires and can be quite grisly.)
Cruz, not known for mincing words, shot back on social media several times Tuesday, drawing a comparison between the undead and Democrats. On his Facebook page Cruz wrote:
Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO’s True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a “Ted Cruz fundraiser.”
Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends….
In the progtard world, vampires are pretty cool. So of course they’d be out slaughtering Ted Cruz Republicans. They’re just projecting what most progtards would like to do in the real world.
