Ted Cruz opens mouth, firmly inserts foot
And to imagine, this guy styles himself as a super-genius constitutional lawyer!
Ted Cruz was ripped over social media after he congratulated a multiple sclerosis patient on her diagnosis during a debate on Obamacare Tuesday night.
The GOP Texas senator made the off-color comment after Maryland resident Carol Hardaway asked him how the Trump administration will ensure that she can continue to receive care for her multiple sclerosis, which Medicaid currently covers.
“Congratulations on dealing with MS, it’s a terrible disease and congratulations on your struggles dealing with it,” Cruz said after Hardaway told him that she was forced to move from the senator’s home state after it refused to expand Medicaid.
“Are you happy she is sick?” one Twitter user tweeted at Cruz.
