Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) and former President Donald Trump both spoke at the National Rifle Association Convention, just days after an 18-year old gunman shot and killed 21 people at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. On Friday (May 27) morning, the Houston rap legend shared his thoughts about Cruz's scheduled speech, which was slated for later in the day.

"Man @tedcruz has no compassion for anything or anyone," Face tweeted at the senator. "You took off at a time your constituents needed you most you flew to Cancun during the freeze, you let a man insult your wife, your father, hell he insulted you, and now you’re a trumpet you dare to show up at NRA convention?"

He added: "Ay @tedcruz imagine the terror those little 4th graders faced, the pain tha families are dealing with right now, This is a bad time to attend an NRA convention, btw I have a 4th grader, and I also have an assault rifle I’d be willing to part with my weapon, but NOT my 4th grader."

Speaking at the convention, Cruz addressed calls for more gun control.

“The elites who dominate our culture tell us that firearms lie at the root of the problem,” Cruz said. “It’s far easier to slander one’s political adversaries and to demand that responsible citizens forfeit their constitutional rights than it is to examine the cultural sickness, giving birth to unspeakable acts of evil.”
