Sen. Ted Cruz unloaded a scathing rebuke of the mainstream media after a woke PBS reporter attacked US Surgeon General Jerome Adams.

The Texas Republican took to Twitter to ask “what the hell is wrong w/ MSM?!? ” following the much-criticized exchange at Friday’s White House coronavirus task force press briefing when frequent MSNBC contributor Yamiche Alcindor whined about language Adams had used.

“Imagine: you’re a professional NPR reporter, you have an opportunity to ask the US Surgeon General a Q—in the midst of a global pandemic w/ over 100k fatalities—and you ask ‘many people’ are offended by what you call your grandmother,” Cruz tweeted along with a video from the moment in the briefing.

Alcindor claimed people were “offended” by the Surgeon General’s use of certain words during a coronavirus appeal he made to the African-American and Latino communities.

Adams, who is black, defended his remarks saying he “used the language that is used in my family.”

“I have a Puerto Rican brother-in-law. I call my granddaddy ‘granddaddy.’ I have relatives who call their — their grandparents ‘Big Mama.’ So that was not meant to be offensive,” he responded. “That’s the language that we use and that I use.”

The subsequent virtue-signaling and attacks on Adams, which caused “Uncle Tom” to begin trending on Twitter, set off Cruz who continued to unleash his anger at the smears of the “highly accomplished” physician.

The senator also called out liberals who were “triggered” by Adams’ use of the term “Abuela,” which is simply the Spanish word for grandmother.

“So don’t use it as an opportunity to stoke racial & ethnic division, especially in a time of crisis,” Cruz tweeted.

Cruz found plenty of Twitter users echoing his condemnation.
