Apparently Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has watched the classic film “The Hunt for Red October,” in which the Soviet submarine V. K. Konovalov launches a torpedo at the defecting Red October submarine but the torpedo ultimately winds up destroying the V. K. Konovalov itself.

On Tuesday, seizing upon a story in the Los Angeles Times that slammed the Trump administration for relaxing gas mileage and emissions requirements for auto manufacturers, former President Barack Obama took a shot at President Trump and his administration as Obama targeted the youth vote for 2020.

But he didn’t reckon with Cruz (R-TX) who took Obama’s words and deftly turned them into an attack on former Vice President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

Obama tweeted: “We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial. All of us, especially young people, have to demand better of our government at every level and vote this fall.”

Cruz turned the missile headed for Trump and the GOP and reversed its path so it wound up targeting Biden and Pelosi, tweeting: “Bold: Obama calls for the overwhelming electoral defeat of Joe Biden & Nancy Pelosi, after they opposed & demagogued Trump’s China travel ban, which helped slow the coronavirus pandemic.”

In January, President Trump reacted swiftly to the WHO’s announcement that human transmission of COVID-19 was possible, issuing his travel ban on people coming from China the very next day. He was attacked for his alleged xenophobia by various quarters, including Biden, who attacked Trump at a campaign rally, saying, ““In moments like this, this is where the credibility of a president is most needed, as he explains what we should and should not do. This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia, hysterical xenophobia, to uh, and fear mongering.”

In mid-March, Biden ripped President Trump on Twitter for Trump’s actions in banning travel to the United States and Trump’s actions building a wall on the southern border, tweeting, “A wall will not stop the coronavirus. Banning all travel from Europe — or any other part of the world — will not stop it. This disease could impact every nation and any person on the planet – and we need a plan to combat it.”

Also in mid-March, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise pointed out that the No Ban Act that Pelosi supported would have made it more difficult for President Trump to issue his China travel ban in January, as The Hill reported. He stated, “I know there is one piece of legislation that’s scheduled for the floor this week that I would urge Speaker Pelosi to pull back on, and that is the No Ban Act. You saw at the very beginning of this, President Trump was able to take quick action when so many cases were coming out of China, and we still don’t know enough about the genesis of this disease in China and how it may have started there.” He continued:

Unfortunately, they didn’t share enough information with us as quickly, where we could have done more things earlier. But at the same time, the president was able to take quick action to limit the number of people coming in from China that had exposure to coronavirus, but the No Ban Act would make it more difficult for the president to keep Americans safe by addressing needs as we see other countries like Iran — you’re seeing a large, potential large outbreak in Iran — Iran is one of those countries that we currently have a travel ban on because they don’t allow us to properly vet that terrorists aren’t coming into our country.

    The political arena is not accustomed to someone who tells the straight-out truth as does Donald Trump. Certainly the truth is a most frightening and foreign concept to the Democrats. It makes them angry, and the only people who get angry at you for speaking the truth are those people who are themselves living a lie, to wit, if honesty and integrity were mankind’s bread, the democratic party would most certainly starve to death. Their narcissism and cruelty serve only to shine an even brighter light on the undeniable fact that the only agenda they have ever had is their agenda to keep Americans chained down and their feet nailed to the floor. President Trumps predecessor was so preoccupied with his delusional empyrean status that his every word and act were steps toward his insatiable appetite for absolute rule. He amply proved himself as someone who was more than willing to lay down YOUR life for his own personal agenda. The democrats all said that the marvelous accomplishments President Trump has made were not possible. Let those who say it cannot be done kindly not disturb the man doing it.

    Though I most certainly do not wish any ill will toward Mr. Obama or his family I have nevertheless been basking in the sunshine of the marvelous fact that he is no longer President. A “foreign” dictator nonetheless who, to begin with, had no authority or right whatsoever to even occupy the seat of President of the United States. It is indeed a most joyous and heart-warming thing to no longer be under his oppressive thumb. Both he and his wife openly expressed their disgust and hatred of this country and of course a very special hatred of Christians and Christianity. To wit, I take great pleasure in reminding Mr. Obama that there are approximately 2,000 foreign departures every day from continental U.S. Airports which, fortunately, proves most advantageous to his expedient exit from this great country for which he has consistently expressed such great contempt.
