Ted Cruz, shunned by colleagues, trashes Congress in hour-long Senate speech

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Ted Cruz ripped into fellow Senators last night in a livid speech book-ended by rejection from his colleagues and designed to rile his base over the slipping chance of defunding Planned Parenthood.

After the Senate voted to end debate on a resolution to fund the government, Cruz tried to procedural move to bring up one that wouldn’t fund Planned Parenthood. His colleagues blocked him, even though senators are routinely granted votes on such measures even if they’re destined to fail. In other words, it’s a swift parliamentary smack in the face.

Once the dust settled around 6:15 p.m., Cruz dug in for more than hour of his classic hits on D.C., channeling his base’s “volcanic” frustration with Republican congressional leadership via Planned Parenthood, the Iran nuclear deal and the Barack Obama administration.

“I will give President Obama and the Senate Democrats credit,” said Cruz. “They are willing to crawl over broken glass with a knife between their teeth to fight for {their} principles. Unfortunately, leadership on my side of the aisle does not demonstrate the same commitment.”

5. Congress tells Ted Cruz...fuck off you crazy waste of oxygen.

 

Cruz still decides to waste additional hour of Congressional oxygen. Senators baffled by epic loser rant, throw milk duds at Cruz and laugh at his tears of fauxrage.

10. It's like a horrible summer camp movie.

 

We've moved far, far away from the kabuki theater and into lampoon territory imo.

14. I think when they lie they should be censured or expelled

He knows he's lying and does not care. That makes him unfit for public office. TED CRUZ is a liar and hates women.
