Ted Cruz: I Won’t Apologize Because McConnell DID Lie To Me

By Sara Gonzalez at Red State

Ted Cruz is standing by his assertion that Senator Mitch McConnell lied to him last year about a trade deal. Cruz was widely criticized for calling McConnell a “liar” on the Senate floor.

In an interview with Chuck Todd to be aired in full on Thursday night, Cruz doubled down on his decision to call out McConnell for lying to him, and made a great point about the dysfunction of the Senate in the process.

Watch below:


Chuck Todd: But you called the Senate majority leader a liar on the Senate floor. That has not set well with your colleagues. Do you regret calling him a liar on the Senate floor?

Ted Cruz: You know Washington is an amazing place. When somebody stands up and lies to you, and someone else points out that they lied—

Todd: He lied to you? You still stand by–?

Cruz: Every word I said there was true and accurate, no one has disputed a word I said. The reaction in the Senate is “how dare you say that out loud!” They’re not upset that somebody lied to them! [audience laughter] I mean, that’s the amazing thing!

Todd: If that’s the case, how do you stand working with somebody who lies to you and how can you work with him going forward?

Cruz: What I have done from day one is endeavored—and it’s a promise I made to the people who elected me. I’m going to tell the truth, and I’m going to do what I said I would do.

He’s not wrong.

This is a great reminder: Ted Cruz has proven he will take on the “establishment” and stand up for what’s right, even when it costs him alliances. The people who fault him for being slow to garner support from his colleagues are the same people who say they want an “outsider.”

Well, here’s your outsider. And he isn’t compromising his values to play the political game and buy more support from Washington.

As an added bonus: he’s NOT a dangerous narcissistic imbecile.

    I respect Cruz for telling the truth, however like any other stand we take, most of the time you must count the cost before you ‘speak your mind. Cruz knew he hoped to become president and if he did he would NEED help from congress. Carter was a good man, morally, he his own congress helped to sink him. (In his case the military let him down also)

    But I am sure Cruz can take the back lash, I just hope he can mend fences for ‘breaking the solid Blueline (congressional line in this case)’ if he is elected. Politics is the only ‘Occupation’ in the world where you can call a guy a SOB then turn around the next day and say he is a great guy. (a lot is in WHERE you say it)

    I personally do not give a rat’s ass if he called them all liars, most of them are.


    • McConnell has turned into one of the biggest liars in a town infamous for being full of liars. McConnell, when he looks in the mirror in the morning, is looking at one of THE biggest reasons for the rise of Trump.
