WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 13: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) speaks with reporters during a series of the votes at the U.S. Capitol Building on February 13, 2023 in Washington, DC. Officials announced over the weekend that for the fourth time in two weeks U.S. forces had shot down a high flying object in North American airspace.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) slammed Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg during the most recent episode of “Verdict” this week over his handling of the train disaster in East Palestine, Ohio.

Cruz’s remarks come as Buttigieg finally visited the town, weeks after a train derailed there spilling a large amount of toxic chemicals that were set on fire, sparking fears over what the health impacts could be for the surrounding community.

“Look, it is ridiculous that Joe Biden has not been to East Palestine yet,” Cruz said. “You literally have an American city with a major derailment that was on fire, where the water is being poisoned, where the air is being poisoned, where it’s ongoing for multiple days, and this administration does not give a damn.”

Cruz said that the Biden administration does not care about the community because it voted overwhelmingly for former President Donald Trump.

“And it’s clear their attitude. Look, it’s all politics all the time. It’s all communications and PR all the time,” he said. “And so going there is a bad message. And it really is striking.”

Cruz then turned his focus to Buttigieg, who has faced intense criticism for his lackluster performance in responding to multiple crises that fall under his purview.

“What in the hell does Pete Buttigieg have to do to get fired?” Cruz said. “Like in the history of this country, has there ever been a transportation secretary who has screwed more things up? From in his first year in office, a supply chain crisis that impacted the entire country that made it hard to get basics and essentials?”
