Texas Senator and 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz delivered a blistering and utterly historic speech on the Senate floor on Friday, exposing the double-dealing and outright lies of RINO Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
And Cruz didn’t just use niceties like “the good senator mispoke,” he used the word avoided at all costs by politicians of all stripes, the “L” word, “lie” and “lied.”

“It saddens me to say this. I sat in my office, I told my staff the majority leader looked me in the eye and looked 54 Republicans in the eye. I cannot believe he would tell a flat-out lie,’ and I voted based on those assurances that he made to each and every one of us. What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that not only what he told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again, was a simple lie.”
Cruz continued to document lie after lie from McConnell, whom he accused of running the Senate very closely to Democrat strongman Harry Reid, and with very similar outcomes (funding Obamacare, Obama’s illegal amnesty, nominating radical Loretta Lynch, etc.).
And while the leftstream media, and also some normally considered conservative media outlets, have been largely silent on the reporting and aftermath of Cruz’s historic takedown of McConnell, or at least minimizing the story, that didn’t stop grassroots America from hammering McConnell on social media, piling on the RINO with some real zingers, including referring to the Kentucky senator as a “lying piece of dung” on Facebook:
Others called on Kentuckians to begin the recall process of “steamy pile” Senator Mitch McConnell:
On Twitter, Americans were equally livid over the revelation of McConnell’s repeated lies, not only to fellow Republican senators, but to the media, i.e., the American people, as well as being disgusted with his allegiance to cronyism:

Conservative Review’s Daniel Horowitz spread the love, slamming another RINO Senator Orrin Hatch for defending McConnell and attacking Cruz:
So Hatch has no problem with McConnell lying to the entire conference, just the fact that he was called a liar for lying — Daniel Horowitz (@RMConservative) July 26, 2015
Best-selling author, constitutional scholar, and talk show great Mark Levin accused McConnell of “delivering victories for liberals.”
