Last week, Texas Republican Senator and generally-disliked-guy-who-now-sports-a-beard Ted Cruz killed a ceremonial resolution honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg because he objected to language his Democratic counterparts added that included her dying wish that a successor not be chosen until after the presidential inauguration early next year.
The one, the only, Ted Cruz
Not long afterward, Cruz accused Democrats of engaging in "political theater" by opposing the rushed confirmation of Trump's nominee, the deeply conservative Amy Coney Barrett. Klobuchar let him have it.
Now, this? This is theater
“No, Senator Cruz, this isn’t ‘theater,’” she said. “This is about people’s lives — their health care, their rights, and their future.”
Cruz, by the way, opposed confirmation hearings for Obama nominee Merrick Garland in 2016, citing the upcoming election -- 237 days away.
Now, as Klobuchar points out, Americans all over the country are already voting, and the election is a mere 37 days away.
Nine minutes and we didn't want to miss a word.
