Mayor Pete Buttigieg is seen by many Democrats as a rising star, but he just got what deserves. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) made it all happen. This is incredible.
“Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat,” said Buttigieg, blaming Trump for Iran shooting down a Ukrainian airliner.
But Cruz wasn’t going to let this pass without responding. He said, “Uh, Pete, they weren’t ‘caught in the middle.’ They were shot down BY IRAN. Military incompetence by the leading state sponsor of terrorism.”
Cruz continued: “Just because Dems hate Trump doesn’t justify false equivalence w/ Iran. Soleimani was a brutal terrorist who killed hundreds of Americans.”
Buttigieg and other Democrats have hit a new low by blaming the president for Iran destroying 176 innocent souls. This is partisanship and anti-Trump hatred at its most extreme.
In fact, apparently liberals are taking talking points from Iran’s propaganda directly. Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said, “Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster.”
