Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) delivered a three-word response to recent reports saying President Joe Biden’s Alcohol Czar could recommend Americans limit themselves to two beers per week: “Kiss my a**.”
Cruz, during an appearance with host Eric Bolling on Newsmax, took issue with the Left’s apparently incessant need “to control every d*** aspect” of Americans’ lives.
What is it with liberals and wanting to control every damn aspect of your life?

Bolling asked Cruz about the reporting on National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) director George Koob, who recently said that the United States could potentially follow Canada’s lead in recommending a two-beer-per-week limit.
“If there’s health benefits, I think people will start to re-evaluate where we’re at [in the US],” Koob said, adding, “I mean, they’re not going to go up, I’m pretty sure … So, if [alcohol consumption guidelines] go in any direction, it would be toward Canada.”
Cruz was not impressed, however, and he made that clear in his response.
“Look, Eric, it is nuts. Number one, why does Biden have an alcohol czar? We don’t need czars in the United States,” Cruz said, adding, “Number two, what is it with liberals that want to control every d*** aspect of your life?”
“Biden came in, one of the first things they wanted to do was ban gas stoves — New York State has now done that for new construction. They’re trying to go after and regulate ceiling fans,” he continued. “I gotta tell you, it’s hot in Texas, we don’t want to get rid of our ceiling fans.”
“And now these idiots have come out and said, ‘Drink two beers a week,’ that’s their guideline,” he concluded. “I’ve gotta tell you, if they want us to drink two beers a week, frankly, they can kiss my a**.”
