Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said conservative talk show host Tucker Carlson’s comments should not have been politicized by the Biden administration. In an interview with the Daily Caller Wednesday, Cruz stressed that it was unacceptable for the Pentagon to take sides in a cultural dispute.

Carlson recently took aim at Joe Biden’s attempts to make the military “more feminine.” Press Secretary John Kirby responded by attempting to criticize Carlson. He said the Pentagon “will not be taking personnel advice from a talk show host.”

“The last I checked, the official outlet of the Pentagon shouldn’t be smiting anyone unless they are terrorists or our enemies who are trying to destroy us,” Cruz said. “This was, I think, a really unfortunate example of the Biden administration trying to politicize the military.”

In the meantime, Cruz added, he is “deeply concerned” about the direction in which the Biden administration is moving the military.
