The one and only Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas had a little too much fun at the expense of both President Barack Obama and the laid-back daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres this week.
DeGeneres had taken a trip to the White House to accept a Presidential Medal of Freedom Award, which was to be bestowed upon her by the man himself, Barack Obama.
Unfortunately, the comedian said she had a bit of a problem getting into the ceremony because she forgot to carry her photo ID and couldn’t negotiate her way through security. Seems like they stepped up their game after all the fence-hopping intruder incidences.
DeGeneres posted her little quandary on her Twitter account.

Ted Cruz happened to come by the post on his Twitter and shared it in an opportunity to take a poke at Obama.
I thought Obama didn’t believe in photo ID? https://t.co/iodmZjsjLz

The striking point in all this is that throughout his time as President, Obama has railed against voter ID legislation, once claiming that it was designed to “systematically put up barriers and make it as hard as possible for our citizens to vote.”
Oh, shut it, Marxist.
The President further criticized back in August, the 30 U.S. states that require some form of ID in order to vote.
“Fifty years ago, registering to vote across much of the South meant guessing the number of jellybeans in a jar or bubbles on a bar of soap. And while the Voting Rights Act broke down many of the formal and more ridiculous barriers to voting, today — in 2015 — there are still too many barriers to the vote, and too many people trying to erect new barriers to the vote.”
“They’re even written into the code of law in some parts of our country — provisions specifically designed to make it harder for some people to vote. Laws that roll back early voting. Laws with restrictive photo ID requirements. Laws that lead to improper purges of voter rolls.”
…How? Just how was this man EVER the President of the United States?
