Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Thursday night a “left-wing propaganda” film disparaging the National Rifle Association is nothing to worry about because it won’t sell any tickets.
“If he wants to lose some money preaching,” Cruz said on Fox News. “And look, the hypocrisy of a rich Hollywood producer that lives in a fancy neighborhood with all sorts of police protection, and he says he doesn't own a gun, but I bet you there is a good odds that he has armed security around him."
He added: "These left-wing propaganda films that people like Weinstein like to put out, they never sell any tickets."
A number of Republicans have blasted the producer as a hypocrite for disparaging the NRA while producing a number of violent movies. According to IMDb, he has 277 producer credits.
