Senator Ted Cruz:
“Well, you know, we have seen hypocrisy on rank display from the left. All of the folks who jumped on their high horse and were lecturing to President-elect Trump: You’ve got to accept the results of the election! Look, look, these are now the idiots that are protesting in the street and laying their bodies down in front of cars and disrupting traffic and — and — look, we had an election. The people spoke. Democracy is a powerful, powerful way of choosing.
And you know, I think Americans across this country, I think this is across the line of Republicans, of Democrats, of Independents, of Libertarians. I think Americans are excited about the opportunity to have an administration that actually protects our rights, that brings back jobs.
Listen, repealing ObamaCare and lifting the burdens of Washington on small businesses, those are promises that were made and those are promises I’m really excited about having the chance to work with President-elect Trump to deliver it.”
