As Twitchy reported, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was trolled hard by both Democrats and Republicans Monday night upon the confirmation of Surgeon General Vivek Murthy. It was no surprise to see someone like David Axelrod turn on the smarm, but even “Special Report with Bret Baier” contributors Charles Krauthammer and George Will spanked the junior senator for his “stunt” of calling for a point of order on the constitutionality of executive amnesty.

While Cruz himself appeared on “Special Report” Tuesday night to make his case, Washington Examiner chief political correspondent Byron York took to Twitter to take some heat off of Cruz and argue that Speaker Harry Reid was always going to get what he wanted.

Point of order: Was Cruz’s “stunt” indirectly responsible for Murthy’s confirmation?

Just wait until January and the tables are turned.
