Ted Cruz's attack on Jen Psaki for 'gaslighting' blows up in his face in spectacular fashion

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) made an attempt to criticize White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Monday for "brazen gaslighting" after she patiently explained to a Fox News reporter that, if any defunding of the police is being done, it's by Republicans who shot down a $350 million bill that would have provided support for law enforcement.
For the bombastic Cruz, his choice of the term "gaslighting" was a reminder of not only his reputation as "Lying Ted" --bestowed upon him by Donald Trump -- but also a reminder of his fleeing the country for sunny Cancun when the Texas energy grid failed, residents in his home state froze and some died.
You can see how that fared for him below:
Translation: "We're doing this, so of COURSE we're going to say the other side is doing it and not us!"\n\nI mean, you DID go "Oooh! Look at the money we got you!" after 100% of you voted against any stimulus money.— Donald's Conscience (@Donald's Conscience) 1624909664
Nice example of someone incorrectly using a word they hear other people saying.— Longinus (@Longinus) 1624911040

Gaslighting? That\u2019s rich, coming from a man who watched Texans FREEZE TO DEATH, while he escaped to sunny Cancun, then blamed the vacation on his daughters.— Nestor Gaetz (@Nestor Gaetz) 1624913872
