John Oliver on the Texas freeze fiasco

He roundly criticizes all those responsible for what was a foreseen and avoidable disaster.

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shames Ted Cruz by raising $5 million to help Texans while he was gallivanting off to Cancun.

    Texas republicans will use federal funds to pay extortionist energy companies who are ripping off ordinary Texans after they failed to upgrade their facilities (even though they had ten years to do it) after a deep freeze crippled the state this week, a senior congressman said… There, fixed it for them.

    … he is a person who stands on principle, right?

    Yes, he is -- like the way Derek Chauvin stood on George Floyd.

  3. Reginald Selkirk says

    They have been consistently voting Republican for decades, so in a sense the did.
