Tammy Talpas is a brave lady who didn’t spare Senator Ted Cruz at a town hall. She had asked him to take a DNA test to prove that he’s really human.
Even better, she captured the whole encounter on video and posted it to YouTube.
Talpas naturally assumed that anyone who would want to take health care away from so many human beings couldn’t possibly be human themselves, so she simply had to get proof straight from the source.
Cruz, for his part, reacted inconclusively while rejecting Talpas’ request for his genetic material. His response to her was such a typically smarmy political answer that it doesn’t offer proof per se of his humanity.
“Well, m’am, thank you for that, and one of the great things about our democratic system is we can treat each other with respect and civility,” he said.
On second thought, if he thinks trying to steal health care from 20 million people is indicative of respect and civility, his answer tells us everything we need to know about his humanity.
