Ted Cruz: Being gay is Tim Cook’s ‘personal choice,’ but ‘I love my iPhone’

Published

on

In a Thursday morning interview with CNBC, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) commented on Apple CEO Tim Cook’s decision to come out as gay by calling Cook’s orientation a “personal choice,” but went on to say, “I’ll tell you I love my iPhone.”

The Hill blog reported Thursday that Cruz was opining that same-sex marriage is a matter best left up to individual states to decide, although he was careful to stipulate that he believes that marriage should only be between “one man and one woman.”

Cruz wants to amend the U.S. Constitution to make it impossible for the Supreme Court to overturn state laws denying same-sex couples the right to marry.

When asked about his thoughts on Apple CEO Tim Cook’s decision to be open about his orientation, Cruz said, “Those are his personal choices, I’ll tell you I love my iPhone.”

“Listen, Tim Cook makes his personal decisions, and that is his life. My focus is on the constitutional question of who has the authority to make decisions,” he went on.

“This is something we’ve seen over and over again, which is the federal government and federal courts deciding they don’t trust the people,” said Cruz. “They look down on the people, they don’t trust us to make judgments about our own lives, so the federal government and federal courts are going to step in and impose their own policy preferences.”

Congresswoman Katie Porter, in a video posted on social media Monday night, shared with residents of her purple California district why she is joining dozens of other Democrats who support launching an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump.

"I didn't come to Congress to impeach the president," said the first-term representative. "But when faced with a crisis of this magnitude, I cannot with a clean conscience ignore my duty to defend the Constitution. I can't claim to be committed to rooting out corruption and putting people over politics and then not apply those same principles and standards in all of the work I do."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."

Published

President Donald Trump's re-election is "in trouble" in Florida, a former Republican congressman who represented the state explained on MSNBC's "The Last Word" with Lawrence O'Donnell on Tuesday.

"As we’ve been reporting the president officially kicked off his re-election campaign tonight in Florida, where he was greeted by a Quinnipiac poll released today showing he is losing the state of Florida to six Democratic presidential candidates in one-on-one match-ups," O'Donnell reported. "President Trump won the state of Florida by 1.3% of the vote so he cannot afford to lose any support in Florida."
