“They always pick the hard Left, the radicals,’ Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said, discussing his questioning Wednesday of the nominee to lead the Biden Administration’s science office, Dr. Arati Prabhakar, regarding puberty blockers for children.
At the hearing, Cruz asked if people should be allowed to question the use of puberty blockers on children, or if they shouldn’t be allowed to do so because “the science is settled.” Instead of answering, Prabhakar called the question is “complicated.”
In an interview with Newsmax regarding the exchange, Cruz said that Democrats always invoke the term “science,” when what they really mean is “politics,” when trying to shut off debate:
“The Biden Administration, their nominees, they keep going to the extreme. You know, you think of it: there’s a range of Democrats they could pick from – they always pick the hard Left, the radicals, the people who are nutty.
“And, when it comes to science, what we’ve seen from the Democrats is they replace ‘politics’ for ‘science.’
“So, whatever their political answer is, they claim ‘The science demands it!’ And so, there’s no such thing as men and women. Why? – ‘because of science.’”
