Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks said she was "ashamed Ted Cruz is from America" on Saturday, a comment that echoed her famous comments about President George W. Bush in 2003.

The statement was posted to Twitter, and took particular issue with her fellow Texan's seemingly gleeful approach to war.



By juxtaposing quotes from President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Cruz, Maines made a strong anti-warmongering stance.

The statement was similar to her 2003 what she told a London crowd about Bush and the Iraq War: that she was "ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas."

Maines followed up her first tweet with a second that sought to point out the fact that Cruz was born in Canada (albeit to an American mother).

"I stand corrected...Just so you know, I'm ashamed Ted Cruz claims to be American," she wrote, adding fuel to the presidential eligibility question that has been raised primarily by Donald Trump.

According to Billboard.com, "While her remarks about Bush over a decade ago didn't sit well with the group's conservative country fanbase, music fans seem to be ready for their return to the stage. The Dixie Chicks (Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire) embark on a tour on June 1, their first U.S. trek in 10 years — and 'ticket sales have been ridiculous,' according to band manager Simon Renshaw."
