Sabatini Continues Bashing Ted Cruz for Endorsing Cory Mills

Sabatini Continues Bashing Ted Cruz for Endorsing Cory Mills

State Rep. Anthony Sabatini, who is arguably the most hated legislator and Twitter troll in Florida—hated by both Conservatives and Republicans— continues to attack Senator Ted Cruz and just about anyone he feels is either a traitor or a “RINO.”

Rep. Sabatini’s latest jab at Sen. Cruz asked the former presidential candidate to “do the right thing and apologize” for voting to authorize $60 billion dollars to Ukraine.

Sabatini, who ran a losing scorched earth and bigoted campaign against Combat Veteran Cory Mills, appears to still be upset at Cruz for endorsing Mills over him.

Cruz’s campaign consultant recently ridiculed Sabatini for questioning Cruz in a prior tweet, divulging that Sabatini and his campaign lobbied for the senator's endorsement before it went to Mills.

“Hey Anthony, didn’t you and your team just beg for his endorsement a month ago? Weird. What changed,” questioned the consultant.

During the Truth and Courage bus tour in Central Florida this past week, where Cruz campaigned with Mills and Scotty Moore, Cruz  said that he was well aware of Sabatini’s antics and found it comical that he would “beg” for his endorsement, and when he didn’t get it, continue to attack him.

“You are living on a different planet if you think he’s and actual candidate.”—Anthony Sabatini about Cory Mills

The Floridian had found out that Sabatini had been pushing for the endorsement, but when word got out that Sabatini bashed Cruz during a rally for J6 protestors in Tampa, Florida, the endorsement was gone.

During the aforementioned rally, Sabatini is said to have stated,” Ted Cruz is a traitor, and should be primaried.”

Shortly after allegedly making that remark against Cruz, The Floridian was able to obtain a video of Sabatini calling Cruz a “terrorist.”

“When you are aiding and abetting terrorists, like the FBI that has declared war on America, I think you’re a terrorist Ted Cruz,” said Sabatini.

Sabatini was referring to Cruz’s past comment where he characterized the Capitol riot as “a terrorist attack” and then insisted that “every one of those violent criminals who attacked the Capitol should be fully prosecuted.”

Cruz later backtracked and clarified that he was referring to those who actually criminally broke into the Capitol.

“What I was referring to are the limited number of people who engaged in violent attacks against police officers,” he said.

On a personal note, Cruz is right.

All of those unAmerican thugs that specifically broke into the Capitol and assaulted law enforcement, and terrorized both Republican and Democratic lawmakers and staff, should be “fully prosecuted.”

Unlike them, I was in the Capitol legally prior to the break-in and witnessed firsthand what these terrorists did. Lock them all up.

The Floridian previously reached out to Cruz for comment on the video several months ago, but did not hear back.

To Cruz, the decision to endorse Mills over Sabatini was an easy one. The video was simply the icing on the cake that appears to have sealed Sabatini’s fate.

Running for Congress, Again

Days after losing to Mills by a whopping 15 percentage points, Sabatini announced that he would be running for Rep. Daniel Webster’s congressional seat when the veteran congressman retires next year.

Rep. Webster’s health has been in a steep decline and is expected to step down shortly after the beginning of 2023.

When told of Sabatini’s plans to run, Cruz is said to have he doesn’t forget the people who have crossed him.

Cruz’s discontent with Sabatini can be stacked up to those of Gov. Ron DeSantis, Reps. Kat Cammack, Michael Waltz, Bryon Donalds, and just about every single Florida Republican lawmaker at both the state and federal level.

If Webster retires, and if Sabatini runs for his open seat, expect Republicans to rally behind anyone other than Sabatini.

If Sabatini thought that $1.6 million being dropped on his head during his race against Mills was a lot, The Floridian is being told that $1.6 million would be a “drop in the bucket” if Sabatini runs again.

Here is a thought.

Instead of demanding Cruz to apologize or anything, should Sabatini instead apologize for the things he has said and done?

Maybe Sabatini should apologize for:

—Attacking Mills’ wife with bigoted dispursions during the campaign

—Yelling out similary bigoted remarks at elected officials during a drunken stuper at the 2021 Orange County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner

—Being the only Republican to vote against Gov. Ron DeSantis’s “Florida Freedom” budget

—Voting to defund police and veterans when he sided with Progressive Democrats in voting against Gov. DeSantis’s budget.

You know Mills is a Muslim right? Ever heard of a Muslim being married to a non-muslim, lol…He told several people he is. He doesn’t hide it.”—Anthony Sabatini
