The Houston Astros celebrated their World Series victory by an elaborate parade on Monday. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was riding in the back of a Humvee in the parade, when a person threw an alcoholic drink at him. It was believed to be a bottle of beer at first, however, Cruz later clarified that it was a White Claw.
While the can hit Cruz in the neck and chest area, he did not suffer any injuries. The idiot who did the throwing was arrested and is now facing assault charges.
This incident is just the latest in a string of violent attacks that are politically motivated. Many of which seem to be directed at those on the right. However, regardless of the way they're directed and who's behind the attacks, they're an indication of how crazy many have become in this age of political battles, where political opponents are considered to be on the level with people like Hitler.
Cruz expressed his gratitude to the Houston Police and the Capitol Police for their swift action. He also stated that he was “thankful that the clown who threw his White Claw had a noodle for an arm.”
In fact, we should appreciate that a bit of mocking and a swift strike from a 12 oz can was the worst that was done, even though it was a waste of a White Claw.
