Senator Ted Cruz asked to do a DNA test to prove he’s human

Texas senator Ted Cruz is facing a midterm election about the ongoing debate over healthcare against Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke.

A woman, by the name of Tammy Talpas on YouTube, said that she was forced to go into a high-risk pool or else she would go “bankrupt”
“I take your threats of medical aggression personally and seriously; and I can assure you, I’m not the only Texan who does,”

“My question is: Will you pledge to submit to a DNA test, to prove that you’re human?” – she asked Cruz


“Well, ma’am, thank you for that, and one of the great things about our democratic system is we can treat each other with respect and civility” – he replied.


After the woman pressed him for her request, he replied with:

“Ma’am, if you want to engage in insults, that’s your prerogative. But I’m not going to reciprocate.”

The third time when she asked, Cruz shot the interview down by repeating twice “Thank you for being here” and walked away.
