This past week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave the Biden administration a piece of his mind, following guidance from the admin suggesting limitations on how much alcohol Americans should be allowed to drink.
Cruz cracked open a cold one on live TV, in a bid to give the president a piece of his mind.
On Aug. 31, Cruz appeared on Newsmax with host Eric Bolling, on a segment blasting the Biden administration’s edicts banning various everyday aspects of Americans’ lives, including gas stoves, air conditioners and ceiling fans, along with hundreds of attempts to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights. Drawing Cruz’s ire, however, was Biden’s recent comments about how much alcohol Americans are allowed to drink.
With a group of cowboy-hatted supporters behind him, Cruz blasted the “idiots” in the Biden administration.
“Now these idiots have come out and said ‘drink two beers a week,’” Cruz said. “That’s their guideline.”
Cruz pulled out a bottle, adding, “If they want us to drink two beers a week, frankly, they can kiss my ass,” before opening the beverage and taking a swig live.
Cruz spoke in reference to new guidelines being floated by Biden’s National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, which announced on Aug. 25 that Americans should only be having two alcoholic drinks per week, a drastic shift from its old guidance of two per day.
In a statement to the Daily Mail, Biden’s health czar, Dr. George Koob, said that Americans need to slash their alcohol intake to stay healthy.
“If there’s health benefits, I think people will start to re-evaluate where we’re at,” he said of alcohol consumption in the U.S. He added that the U.S. should follow the guidance set out by Canada, suggesting that people should only partake in alcohol consumption twice per week.
“Most of the benefits people attribute to alcohol, we feel they really have more to do with what someone’s eating rather than what they’re drinking,” Koob added. “So it really has to do with the Mediterranean diet, socio-economic status, that makes you able to afford that kind of diet and make your own fresh food and so forth.”
“With this in mind, most of the benefits kind of disappear on the health side,” he claimed.
