Uh oh, get under something heavy and hold on!
Ted Cruz is a POS. His mention of Garland is pure gloat.

of course ted cruz is going to compare kavanaugh to garland WHO THEY NEVER HELD A HEARING FOR without any sense of irony. Leave it to Ted Cruz to make a stupid and pointless point without any sense of history or context. #StopKavanaugh

Was anybody else outraged when Tad Cruz had the audacity to bring up Chief Justice Merrick Garland in this suspect hearing when didn’t even meet the man? He did this to give Kananaugh cover saying Kavanaugh and Merrick voted the same 90+ % of the time. Disgusting! pic.twitter.com/wbngN771jK
