Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) went on Fox News on Tuesday hours after a combative interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd. During his Fox interview, Crenshaw told host Will Cain he believes the media sees him as a threat.
This is why the media steers any conversation with him to “D.C. gossip” that includes former President Donald Trump and ousted GOP Conference chairwoman Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY).
Crenshaw Sounds Off
“It always happens when I go on these shows,” Crenshaw said. “I rather enjoy it. It’s important to take a step back and note how ridiculous that is. I trend on Twitter as soon as I’m off that show. And it wasn’t a very eventful interview. It is nothing like some of my past interviews that are true debates. I remember with Bill Maher on or about, you know, MSNBC in the past.”
“This one was just talking about the typical D.C. gossip that, truthfully, nobody really cares about,” the Republican representative from Texas added. “And yet, I’m trending on Twitter. The Washington Post alone had three analyses written on it. So there is an obsession here for sure.”
‘They Are Desperate’
“They are desperate. But they are also threatened,” Crenshaw said. “They don’t like it when somebody who is reasonable, who has a different point of view but can also reason their way through that point of view, comes on their shows and pokes holes in that liberal bubble because they like to propagandize. They don’t like facts.”
“On your show just now, you had people disagree with you,” he continued. “Do you think that person trend on right-wing Twitter? Absolutely not because we don’t mind having contradicting views. We like debate. It is important to note that. That’s why this blows up.”

“Now, let’s talk about their obsession with Trump and with Cheney and with all of it. Nobody cares. Right? My constituents are not affected by that. I am not even affected by that, and I am, I guess, a D.C. Insider. I am a member of Congress, OK? It doesn’t even affect me.”
“Now it definitely doesn’t affect my constituents, and I’m not going to try to make that case,” he stated. “Let’s actually debate issues. I will always come on these shows and debate toe to toe on any issue — even the tough ones.”
“Let’s debate environmental tall policy, healthcare, the border, taxation, whatever you want,” Crenshaw concluded. “But they don’t do it. They don’t like that. They want to just talk gossip and keep this thing alive. I’m not going to let it happen.”
