Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) made waves on Tuesday after announcing that she'd take broad steps to cancel student loan debt for 42 million Americans on the first day of her presidency.

What's more, the former Harvard Law Professor says she doesn't need Congress to do it.

The National Rifle Association partnered with Republican Senator from Texas Ted Cruz at the start of this year to spew false and alarmist claims about Democrats.

The NRA shared a video of Cruz on Twitter falsely claiming that Democrats wanted to "take your freedom" for wanting assault weapons regulated differently than 18th century muskets.

The House of Representatives is expected to vote to impeach President Donald Trump before the end of the year, putting him on trial in the Senate in the same year he'll run for reelection.

As a result, more and more Republican Senators are going on the record to defend the President's actions.

Among them? Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX).

Cruz's unyielding loyalty to Trump, despite the pair's bitter rivalry during the 2016 Republican primary, confounds many to this day. Now, Cruz is repeating conspiracy theories on the President's behalf.

In an interview with Meet the Press host Chuck Todd, even the show's crew could be heard laughing at Cruz insisting that Ukraine meddled in U.S. elections.

Watch below.

When asked by Todd if he believed Ukraine meddled in the 2016 election, Cruz responded, "I do and I think there's considerable evidence." An incredulous Chuck Todd responded, "You do?"

Laughter could be heard off camera.

Cruz continued trying to make his case, but was only able to cite an op-ed from Ukrainian ambassador to the U.S., Valeriy Chaly. The op-ed was critical of Trump after Trump implied that Ukrainians in Crimea–which Russia illegally seized in 2014—would rather be living under Russian rule.

A single op-ed, according to Cruz, is equivalent to Russia's "multiple, systematic efforts to interfere in our election."

Others agreed with the Meet the Press crew that the senator's remarks were laughable.








Cruz is all but certain to vote to acquit Trump in the Senate if the President is impeached. At least it won't be without rebuke.

President Donald Trump announced Senior National Security Advisor John Bolton's immediate departure from the Trump administration in a tweet on Tuesday morning. While Trump thanked Bolton for his service, he noted that he "disagreed strongly with many of [Bolton's] suggestions."

Thought by many to be a warmonger, Bolton championed a "maximum pressure" strategy against Iran, meaning he endorsed sanctions and threats against the country to pressure it into submission. The maximum pressure strategy hasn't worked. Like at all.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is one of the least liked politicians in Washington. From George W. Bush to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to the Satanic Temple, Cruz has a long list of detractors.

Now, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) can be added to the list.

Hopping onto stage to the strains of the Free song "All Right Now"—the rock music choice and song lyrics making everything a bit more awkward—Vice President Mike Pence launched the Latinos for Trump coalition campaign initiative in Miami, Florida.

Pence came to the podium to exclaim:

During the 2018 midterm elections, Republican Senator Rafael "Ted" Cruz took a beating about his image resulting in a narrow victory—considering he represents deep red Texas—at the polls. Critics called him a wimp and brought up his acceptance of insults from President Donald Trump about his wife and father, his Canadian birthplace and his lack of coolness.

Since then, Cruz appears to have launched a gritty reboot of himself—adding facial hair and trying for a "cool, tough guy" persona the Texas GOP tried and failed to sell during the election. Included in that effort is tough talk on Twitter and in interviews that—unfortunately for Cruz—gets mostly mocked.
