Cruz Responds to O'Rourke's Viral National Anthem Answer

When Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke was asked a question about the NFL anthem protests at a town hall last week, his answer went viral. O'Rourke told the audience that kneeling during the anthem was not disrespectful. In fact, it is patriotic, he said, because today's kneeling football players are paying homage to the heroes of the civil rights movement. He could "think of nothing more American."


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to his opponent by noting he could think of some things that were more American than the NFL protests. 

Cruz had a few other things to say Thursday after celebrities like Kevin Bacon and Lebron James chimed in to thank O'Rourke for his "thoughtful" speech.

"Beto raising big $$ from Hollywood by supporting NFL protests of the national anthem," Cruz wrote. "But in Texas?  Vast majority of Texans stand for the flag, honor our veterans, and support the brave men & women of law enforcement. People can protest without disrespecting the flag."


He added:

Cruz and O'Rourke are currently separated by only 4 points leading up to the midterms, according to recent polling.
