Fox News host Chris Wallace on Sunday compared Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to a Japanese soldier who thinks World War II is “still going on” because he refuses to accept the presidential election results.
“It would seem to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill have a role to play in this,” Wallace explained on his Fox News Sunday program. “A very few of them have said, look, you pursue your legal options but, you know, damn down the rhetoric, like Mitt Romney, like Pat Toomey.”
“There are a lot who are just silent,” the Fox News host noted. “And then there are some — I mentioned Ted Cruz — who are like the Japanese soldiers who come out 30 years after the war — out of the jungle — and say, ‘Is the fight still going on?'”
Cruz is on record supporting President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of voter fraud.

There’s a presumption at work among members of the Washington press corps that needs rethinking. That presumption is this: the Republicans, especially those in the Senate, fear the wrath of voters who have balled up their identities with the rise and fall of Donald Trump. For this reason, all the Republicans, with rare exception, stand in silence while the president prosecutes what must be called an attempted coup d’etat.

White House staffers are avoiding the Oval Office ‘for fear of crossing’ a ‘temperamental’ Trump: report
As President-elect Joe Biden announces more picks for his incoming administration, it is quite obvious that the former vice president will have a very different governing style from President Donald Trump.
