President Biden met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva, Switzerland today and made it clear that America’s days of bowing and scraping for the foreign dictator ended with the electoral defeat of Donald Trump. In everything from the content of his remarks to his demeanor during their appearance together, Biden projected the strength that was so sorely lacking during his predecessor’s tenure.
Biden told Putin bluntly that the United States will continue to stand up for human rights even if it means condemning the actions of Russia. Marking another important deviation from Trump’s cowardly foreign policy doctrine, Biden also told Putin that “certain critical infrastructure should be off limits to attack, period. By cyber or any other means.” If Russia ignores the warning, Biden promised there will be serious consequences and he will “take action.”
Of course, Republicans who enabled Trump’s weak approach to Russia for four years won’t admit that Biden did exactly what needed to be done on the world stage today. Instead, they’re trying to manufacture convoluted ways to somehow paint Biden’s success as a failure.
The oleaginous Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) clearly struggled to devise a way to smear Biden’s Putin meeting and ended up tweeting out a bizarre and unexplained photo of Biden smiling beside Putin. For some reason, the background of the image had been photoshopped to show a sunny, flowery field.
Cruz didn’t add a caption or explain what point he was trying to make, rendering the entire thing embarrassingly weird. For a man who wastes an inordinate amount of time on Twitter when he should be serving his constituents, Cruz is inexplicably terrible at using the internet.

Twitter users responded with a mix of befuddlement and mockery, proving once again that Senator Cruz would be better off deleting his Twitter account and staying off the internet for good.
