Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) got his ass handed to him on Friday after he tweeted the standard Republican and NRA “thoughts and prayers” response following the school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas.

On Friday morning, students at Santa Fe High School ran for their lives when a gunman opened fire in the 22nd school shooting in 2018, killing ten and injuring many others.

Rather than change the way he responds to such preventable tragedies, Cruz took to Twitter and sent “thoughts and prayers” to those affected by the gun violence.

Republicans like Cruz have consistently sent “thoughts and prayers” after mass shootings. It’s their way of claiming they are doing something without actually doing anything tangible to prevent these shootings from happening again. That’s what happened shortly after the Parkland shooting, and it’s happening again after the shooting in Texas.

One would think that Cruz would want to take action to protect students, especially students in the state he is supposed to represent. After all, Texas parents lost their children today. Surely, he would want to do something to make sure more parents don’t lose their children.

Sadly, it appears Cruz is content to just keep repeating the tired “thoughts and prayers” talking point as if it has the power to stop school shootings.

Well, Twitter users, including some from Texas, were not amused with Cruz’ talk and no action. And they absolutely throttled him.

Ted Cruz is currently locked in a tight race with his 2018 Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke. He is doing himself no favors by continuing to anger Americans by continuing to spout “thoughts and prayers” instead of taking up the fight for gun control to prevent future school shootings.

Texas needs their senator to take action, rather than offer empty platitudes.
