Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) came to CNN ready with allegations that President Donald Trump “broke you guys,” instead of being willing to discuss actual policy issues.

CNN host Chris Cuomo wouldn’t let him have it, accusing the Texas senator of a “weak-ass argument.”

It devolved into a contentious clash as Cuomo poked Cruz for hypocrisy over the healthcare debate, in which Cruz just blocked the pre-existing conditions bill. The senator lamented that Democrats are filibustering everything and that they don’t want to pass any bills.

“Have they read Green Eggs and Ham yet?” Cuomo mocked, recalling the time Cruz took to the Senate floor with a filibuster in which he read the Dr. Seuss book.

Cruz chastised him, asking if he wanted to talk about real issues, but Cuomo shot back that he was merely pointing out the hypocrisy when he saw it.

When Cuomo brought up Trump saying telling the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by,” and refusing to denounce white supremacy, Cruz attacked former Vice President Joe Biden for speaking at Sen. Robert Byrd’s funeral. Byrd was a member of the KKK until he was ultimately reformed, renounced the group and denounced racism. The late Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis even wrote about his life after his death.

The debate moved onto COVID-19 where Cruz attacked Cuomo’s brother and it devolved into the two talking over each other from there.

Published

Clark County Registrar of Voters Joseph Gloria has had three decades of election experience in Nevada, but had never seen a "perfect storm," as he called it, like this before. With all hands on deck for this election cycle, Gloria helped put together an entire mail-in voting system in less than 90 days to deal with the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’m as comfortable as I can be because I have an excellent staff,” Gloria said. “We learned some things in the primary and are feeling good about this cycle, but unfortunately we have people at the national level who are encouraging people to do things that disrupt the polling place and make it a challenge for us to process votes.”

Watch Kamala Harris laugh out loud when 60 Minutes asks her if Trump is racist

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) laughed when asked if President Donald Trump was racist during a 60 Minutes interview that aired Sunday evening on CBS.

"Do you think the president is racist?" Nora O'Donnell asked.

"Yes, I do," Harris replied, with a laugh. "Yeah, I do."

"You can look at a pattern that goes back to him questioning the identity of the first Black president of the United States," she said, referring to the racist "birther" conspiracy theory he pushed against Barack Obama.

"You can look at Charlottesville, when there were peaceful protesters and on the other side neo-Nazis and he talks about fine people on either side," she continued. "Calling Mexicans rapists and criminals? His first order of business was to institute a Muslim ban?"
