Senate Democrats are “out of their minds,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said Wednesday, adding that the attack by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., on President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., was “slanderous” and “ugly.”
Cruz spoke on America’s Newsroom, telling Fox News host Bill Hemmer that he was disgusted with Warren’s speech about Sessions. As reported by Western Journalism, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., invoked a Senate rule to rein in Warren and cut off her remarks.
“The Democrats are angry and they’re out of their minds,” Cruz said.
He said Democrats are obstructing, not legislating.

“You know we’re seeing in the Senate, the Senate Democrats objecting to every single thing — they’re boycotting committee meetings, they’re refusing to show up. They’re just foaming at the mouth practically,” the senator said.
Cruz said Democrats are chiefly angry that they were rejected soundly last November in an election they thought they had won.
” … you know where their anger is directed, it’s not at Republicans — their anger is directed at the American people. They’re angry with the voters — ‘How dare you vote in a Republican president, a Republican Senate, a Republican House?’” he said.
Cruz said charges of racism are the last resort of desperate Democrats.
“The charges that she was making against Jeff Sessions are demonstrably false. They’re slanderous, they’re ugly, and it’s one of the crutches — you know when the left doesn’t have any other arguments, they go and just accuse everyone of being a racist, and it’s an ugly, ugly part of the modern Democratic Party,” the senator said.
“Jeff Sessions is an honorable, decent person,” he said.
Cruz said that if Democrats want to talk about racism, they should look into their own political past before they smear the party of Lincoln.
“Listen, the Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan. You look at the most racist, you look at the people — the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, who imposed Jim Crow laws, who founded the Klan. The Klan was founded by a great many Democrats and now the Democrats just accuse anyone they disagree with of being a racist,” he said.
“That was a false smear of Jeff Sessions and I think he’s going to make an extraordinary AG,” Cruz added.
