​Sen. Ted Cruz finds himself in a war of words MSNBC’s Brian Williams. The Texas
senator ripped the anchor and stated that he was having a “hissy fit” following the
comments made by Williams calling Cruz “Kremlin Cruz.”

“Is there a more pitiful example of corrupt corporate media than Brian Williams? He was
fired as the anchor of NBC Nightly News for ‘misrepresenting events which occurred
while he was covering the Iraq War in 2003.’ Now, he’s a left-wing hack at MSNBC,”
Cruz wrote in a thread on Twitter.

The back and forth spat between the two men started when Cruz took to Twitter to say,
“Holy crap. Perhaps a woke, emasculated military is not the best idea” regarding
praising military recruitment advertisements in Russia.

Williams aimed at Cruz during his show, “The 11th Hour with Brian Williams,” for the
senator’s “remarkably stupid lapse in judgment” by posting “Russian propaganda” and a
video “meant to diminish the US military.”

Cruz would defend himself from these comments made by Williams.

“I hate communists, my family was imprisoned & tortured by communists, and Brian is a
shameless apologist for Russian (and Chinese and Cuban) communists,” Cruz said.

“I was arguing that our military needs to be able to kick the ass of Russian soldiers. It’s
Brian & his lefty comrades that are working relentlessly to diminish the effectiveness of
the US military—the finest fighting force on the face of the planet.”

    Imagine after 4 years of the US media redbaiting it’s readers with a conspiracy theory that Trump was a Russian asset, they have the nerve to try it all over again. How does Brian Williams still have a career in the news industry? Oh it’s MSNBC, where conspiracy theorists practice their trade.

Russian President Vladimir Putin sat down with NBC reporter Keir Simmons for an in-depth interview. One of the first questions Simmons asked Putin if he was a “killer,” which caused him to laugh. 

“Mr. President, are you a killer?” Simmons asked. 

“Over my tenure, I’ve gotten used to attacks from all kinds of angles and from all kinds of areas under all kinds of pretext and reasons and at different caliber and fierceness, and none of it surprises me,” Putin responded. 

Simmons pressed the president once more with the question, but he avoided the question. “Sentiments in terms of who calls someone what kind of labels, this is not something I worry about in the least,” Putin said.

The question is a follow-up to Biden’s statement in an ABC News interview in March. Biden went on to call the Russian president a “killer.” 

Russia has demanded that President Biden apologize for the remark, though Putin stated the comments do not hurt him. 

Tensions within Russia and the U.S. relationship are at an all-time high, but Putin said in the NBC interview that he is hopeful about working with Biden. 

The two presidents have their first meeting next week. Biden expects to confront the Russian president on cyberattacks from Russian groups, Ukraine, and the treatment of jailed Kremlin opponent leader Alexei Navalny, along with other issues.

In the last year, MSNBC Joe Scarborough compared former President Donald Trump to the Russian politician using that killer narrative. The host stated that Trump “would kill reporters if he could get away with it.”

California Republican gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner was the target of a joke by late-night host Jimmy Kimmel. 

During a segment on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the comedian poked fun at Jenner’s appearance on “The View” last week and referred to her as “Trump in a wig.”

“Are we sure that isn’t Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig?” Kimmel asked as he posted side-by-side images that showed them doing similar facial expressions. “The resemblance is uncanny.”

Kimmel proceeded to call the rest of Jenner’s interview “nonsense,” insisting the reality star is in the governor’s race only for attention and naming her “Caitlyn Jenner Car-crash-ian.”

Jenner didn’t stand pat and took to Twitter, where she responded to Kimmel’s jokes about her in his monologue. 

“Last night @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig,” Jenner tweeted. “He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat.”

Jenner continued to call out Kimmel in a follow-up tweet, including one where she scrutinized him for wearing blackface during a Comedy Central skit years ago.

“Speaking of @jimmykimmel he also received a pass from the WOKE on his use of black face and racist actions. Hypocrite,” Jenner tweeted.

The reality star has been making the interview rounds in the media for her campaign. Jenner recently sat down with Fox News host Sean Hannity to discuss her potential policies.
