Having such agenda about undocumented ‘people’/immigrants/illegal aliens when your grandfather travelled over from Cuba. Just bizarre.


Interesting that his first destinaton of choice when abandoning his leadership role during a state of emergency was Mexico.


It’s so frustrating to me that the strongest indictment that gets made of these lies are that they’re “just plain false”. They’re not just false, they’re lies. Cruz said that *knowing* it was false, and what’s more, he said that *knowing* that a 7 second clip of him excoriating the bill would circulate on the right-wing memeosphere as some noble and valiant effort to stand up to democratic big-gubment tyrrany. He shouldn’t just be called out for spreading falsehoods, he needs to be eviscerated in congress and the media for outright lying and deliberately misleading his constituents. Why do we tolerate blatant dishonesty and manipulation in our elected leaders?


Typical right-wing strategy: Convince people to rally against their own interests by telling them that people they don’t like will also benefit.


I’m wondering if there’s any problem, anywhere, happening to any person, that the Republicans can’t blame on “illegal immigrants.”
