Ted Cruz Completely Stands by Calling Mitch McConnell a Liar on Senate Floor

cruzOne reason some of Ted Cruz‘s Senate colleagues aren’t fond of him is that he called Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell a liar on the Senate floor. Some anti-Trump Republicans have made it clear they want him to show some reconciliation if he wants their support.

Chuck Todd played the clip of Cruz’s big moment during an MSNBC town hall tonight and said, “That has not sat well from your colleagues. Do you regret calling him a liar on the Senate floor?”

Cruz insisted, “Every word I said there was true and accurate, no one has disputed a word I said.” He found it amusing more Republicans were angry at him than the person who lied to him.

Todd still asked him, “How do you stand working with somebody who lies to you?”

Cruz said he’s attempting to tell the truth and insisted he would still be able to work with Republican leadership.
