Following Senator Ted Cruz's speech in front of the Senate, where he blamed Democrats for shutting down the government for politics and hatred for Trump, which according to him makes it their fault for first responders not getting paid, Senator Michael Bennet had some passionate words for Ted's "crocodile tears," and blamed him for causing the deaths of people from his state in 2013.
"When the Senator from Texas (Ted) shut this government down in 2013, my state was flooded, it was under water, people were killed, people's houses were destroyed, their small businesses were ruined... forever. And because of the Senator from Texas, this government was shut down... for politics."
Bennet goes on to wonder why Ted supports Trump and his "medieval" wall.
"...how ludicrous it is that this government is shut down over a promise the President of the United States couldn't keep, and that America is not interested in having him keep; this idea that he was going to build a medieval wall across the southern border of Texas, take it from the farmers and ranchers that were there and have the Mexicans pay for it isn't true. That's why we're here."
Senator Bennet doesn't stop there, check out his full remarks below where he calls Republicans "tyrants (7:50)" and says he believes the Senate is one of the most corrupt parts of the US government (17:20).
