BWAHAHA! Cornyn and Cruz think that Trump wouldn't plunder TX relief funds for his beaded curtain.

U.S. Sen. John Cornyn said Friday he would oppose any effort to redirect Hurricane Harvey relief funds to pay for a border wall — a move that he and fellow Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz agreed was unlikely to happen.

There were reports Thursday that the Trump administration was considering using some of the $13.9 billion in disaster relief money that Congress approved for Texas and other states to construct Trump’s long-sought border barrier. Friday marked the 21st day of a federal government shutdown over Trump’s demands for border wall dollars.

“I will oppose any reprogramming of Harvey disaster funds,” Cornyn told reporters after a joint appearance with Cruz in Austin. “We worked very hard to make sure that the victims of Hurricane Harvey — their concerns are addressed and Texas is able to rebuild. And I think we are all together on that.”

Cruz, who spoke with reporters alongside Cornyn, said he did not believe the Trump administration “is going to do anything to reduce the funding for Hurricane Harvey relief.” Cornyn said he agreed.

“I think some of these reports are overstated,” Cruz said. “I don’t think we’re going to see that money jeopardized in any way.”

1. Just the idea

Of trump taking money from disaster funds should make any one with half a brain realize just how stupid trump really is. He doesn't care about anything but his own agenda, and he doesn't care about anyone who might be hurt because of his actions.

2. I think they are correct

tRump will take from Blue States only. Due to his incompetence, and those he hires, the Red States will get caught up in some of his insane moves. Regardless, it won't matter to Red State repubs, as long as Californians and New Yorkers are getting treated worse.

3. Those two have been compromised for a long time - they won't stop supporting Trump until they are

...facing charges of their own...

Wait till Texans see what is coming their way...

Maybe at least it will finally make purple turn blue....

5. But of course they're fine with pulling it from CA or PR...


...classic republican point of view on what they call handouts. They're not handouts when I get them because, well, "I need them".




This guy (at 1:00 minute mark) is the archetype of captures this attitude perfectly in 10 seconds. From Alexandra Pelosi video aired on Bill Maher in 2012.

6. If Ted Cruz thinks that beard scruff makes him look less like a smarmy git, he is woefully mistaken.

7. Thinking these two crooks

Would say anything close to the truth is funny. They are both lying corrupt criminals who'll lie almost as much as trump on anything , and have a long history of doing that.
