Ted Cruz and John McCain: The secret emails revealed

posted by 2 Comments

johnmccainangryFreshman Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and veteran Republican Sen. John McCain have butted heads on several occasions since Cruz entered the Senate earlier this year. The Daily Caller has exclusively obtained a recent email exchange between them.

It is reprinted here for the first time, in their entirety, and without comment.

My dear friend,

I feel like we’ve started off on the wrong foot. Although there have been many times this Congress that I’ve longed to feel your soft face pressed helplessly against my knuckles, a lifetime of service has taught me that, with effort, I can forgive almost any slight for the good of the country. Please consider this note an olive branch, and realize that any suggestions come from a place a friendship.

I understand that you came to the Senate looking to shake things up, and while that’s all well and good, you should understand that we abide by certain standards here in the world’s greatest deliberative body. For example, it is generally considered impolite for a freshman to call an older senator a “pussy,” particularly when the senator in question is a decorated war veteran, and the freshman is a slouching little lady-man who went to Harvard. It is likewise considered uncouth to push older senators down the stairs, as you did with Sen. Hatch, and call them “sugar tits,” as you did with Sen. Reid.

I look forward to your upcoming apology to these members of the Senate, as well as your continued contributions to the debate about the future of our country.

Well, senator, I think it’s about time someone taught you a thing or two about what freedom means and why it’s worth defending.

Freedom, senator, means America. And America means freedom. That’s what I’m fighting for. Have you even ever considered putting your hide on the line for freedom? Come over to my office when you have a chance. I’d be happy to teach you all about courage and honor.

I only like to deal with facts, senator. So here are a few important ones that are worth considering: I graduated at the top of my class at both Princeton and Harvard Law. You graduated at the bottom of your class at Annapolis and crashed a plane three times. Also, I have never crashed a plane.

Now, you referenced the Hatch incident, or as some call it in Cruz-land, “The First Battle in the War to Restore Liberty.” It just so happens that Sen. Hatch is what we real Americans call a RINO — and I don’t mean the animal. I mean a Republican In Name Only. The most vile of species. I also have it on good authority that Sen. Hatch was trying to spread Shariah law in the Senate (he’s from Utah where there are lots of Muslims). So I pushed him down the stairs to send a message: There’s a new boss in town, and he isn’t afraid to kick you when you’re not looking.

Watch you back, senator — or you may be taking a ride down the stairs like Imam Hatch.

Give Me Freedom or Give Me Death,

My dear, dear friend,

You’re a smart one, aren’t you? How else could a man with all the charm of a North Vietnamese prison guard rise so far, and so quickly! You know how to sling the red meat, you Joe McCarthy-looking son of a bitch, and for that I applaud you. Build the dang fence, and all that. I know how this game is played.



P.S. Sen. Murkowski tells me you recently lost an arm wrestling match with her, and Sen. Sessions tells me you sit when you pee.

Have you no sense of decency, sir? The language you use degrades the hallowed chamber in which we serve. I wish you would reconsider the meaning of the office to which you’ve been elected and the responsibility it carries to set the right example for our nation’s youth. But more likely you’ll ignore my admonition and probably just burn in hell.

In Liberty,

Ted Cruz 2016

P.S. I’m soon going to be president — and you’re going to be 80. How do you like them apples?
