    He was universally criticized for arguing that the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns she be lifted in order for Americans to go back to work during an appearance on Tucker Carlson.
    His comments verbatim were: 'No one reached out to me and said as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren. If that’s the exchange, I’m all in. Let’s get back to work, let’s get back to living. Let’s be smart about it, and those of us who are 70-plus, we’ll take care of ourselves. But don’t sacrifice the country.'

    He led protests against Bill Maher's Politically Incorrect over the controversial statement the comedian made about the 9/11 terror attacks.
    He created a Tea Party caucus in the state legislature, which led to his becoming a one of the most popular figures in Texas politics.
    His comments were reflective of the economic dilemma many Americans face during the global pandemic.
