Indiana Fever/X

Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz criticized the USA Basketball selection committee on social media after the WNBA’s most-watched game in over 20 years.

The Indiana Fever’s victory over the Chicago Sky on Sunday, featuring former college rivals Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark, attracted an average of 2.25 million viewers on CBS, peaking at nearly 3 million.

This game is part of a successful WNBA season, largely due to Clark’s influence. Cruz pointed out Clark’s impact and criticized her exclusion from the Olympic team.

“And yet these imbeciles don’t want her on the Olympic team,” he wrote in a post on X.
