Co-Founder Of Lincoln Project Tears Into Cruz Over Big Bird Comment, Cites His Children. Cruz Fires Back, ‘The Pedophiles At Project Lincoln Need To Stop Talking About My Children’

On Monday, Steve Schmidt, the co-founder of the Lincoln Project, launched an attack on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz where he brought up Cruz’s children after the Texas Republican shredded the media for using the famous Sesame Street character Big Bird in propaganda used to help sell the Biden administration’s push to get small kids vaccinated against COVID.

“If Ted Cruz had kids that age, the chances that they would be unvaccinated are exactly zero. Zero,” Schmidt went on to say.

Cruz, true to his character as a straight shooter who can deliver one heck of a verbal punch, fired back by saying, “The pedophiles at @ProjectLincoln need to stop talking about my children.”


Somebody is going to need some burn cream after that zinger.

Hardcore leftist MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace prompted Schmidt after she mocked the Texas senator, saying, “This is one place that I had hoped so desperately would stay sort of free from the politics. It would appear Ted Cruz can’t help himself.”

“Can’t help himself,” Schmidt then repeated. “And if Ted Cruz had kids that age, the chances that they would be unvaccinated are exactly zero. Zero. So, this is another moment of just abject stupidity from a United States senator from one of the nation’s mega-states in a really serious moment, a really serious time for the country.”

And that is what set Cruz off. And rightfully so.

Cruz’s criticism of the media using Big Bird came after the Twitter account of Big Bird from Sesame Street tweeted, on Saturday, “I got the COVID-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy. Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!”

Biden cheered, “Good on ya, @BigBird. Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep your whole neighborhood safe.”

Cruz then snapped back saying, “We always knew the media were the Dems’ puppets, but this is getting ridiculous.”

“Cruz’s reference to pedophiles was likely with regard to Schmidt’s fellow Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver, who allegedly exhibited sexually predatory behavior toward young men in exchange for career advancement, according to Axios. One of the boys to whom Weaver reportedly spoke was only 14 years old at the time, according to one of the 21 alleged victims interviewed by The New York Times,” the Daily Wire said.

Cruz nailed this here. The folks from the Lincoln Project have no right to be weighing in on anything to do with underage children after their group helped harbor a pedophile.

Good on the Texas senator for giving them a taste of their own medicine.
