Ted Cruz Roasts Twitter CEO Over Biden Scandal Cover-Up: 'Who the Hell Elected You?!'
Republican senator slams Facebook, Google, and Twitters bosses during Senate hearing
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the three Big Tech bosses during their testimonies before the Senate on Wednesday.
Cruz roasted Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey for censoring stories from the New York Post that exposed potential large-scale corruption involving Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
Dorsey joined Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Google's Sundar Pichai in testifying during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing on Big Tech censorship.
Sen. Cruz turned up the heat by grilling Dorsey with a number of questions regarding Twitter’s decision to suspend the New York Post from its platform.
The Texas senator said he believes the social media giants are interfering in the 2020 elections by censoring and suspending accounts that share stories from the New York Post that are damaging to former Vice President Biden's campaign.
“Today, right now, the New York Post is still blocked from tweeting, two weeks later,” Cruz said as he hammered Dorsey.
"Mr. Dorsey, who the hell elected you?" Cruz blasted as the Twitter boss squirmed.
"And put you in charge of what the media are allowed to report, and what the American people are allowed to hear…" Cruz continued.
"And why do you persist in behaving as a Democratic super PAC?”

The New York Post report alleges that Joe and Hunter Biden met with a Burisma executive in 2015.
Twitter then started to censor the story on its platform that night and suspended multiple accounts who had shared the post.
Twitter then suspended President Donald Trump’s official campaign account after it posted a video relating to the Post’s report.
Twitter also locked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany’s personal account after she shared the article on her page.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is also planning on questioning Dorsey about censorship, as well as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a later date.
