#8220The anger on the left #8212 I#8217ve never seen anything like it,#8221 he said. #8220I mean, they#8217re right now opposing everything. Democrats in the Senate are filibustering absolutely everything.#8221
He then added that the Democratic base is #8220bat-crap crazy.#8221
Here#8217s a complete transcript of the interview.
CRUZ: Mark, I#8217m pretty sure that#8217s the first time we#8217ve ever walked out to dance music. (LAUGHTER)
LEVIN: Well, I did think about holding hands, but#8230
#8230 I didn#8217t think that would come off right.
Well, it is my honor to be here with Senator Cruz. We#8217re going to have a short discussion about the Constitution. How many of you support the Constitution?
So we#8217re not at the DNC event here, that#8217s obvious.
CRUZ: I think the smell would be somewhat different.
He means pot, of course.
Study ambiguity or something, right?
You#8217re one of the leading constitutionalists, not just in the Senate, but in the country. And one of the problems we have in this country today is so much of what we do is not within the constitutional construct. You have introduced an amendment to the Constitution to place term limits on members of Congress.
So tell us why you did it and tell us about your amendment.
CRUZ: Well, Mark, I think it#8217s one of the first and biggest steps we can take to actually drain the swamp.
You look across this country people are fed up with Washington. This election was the American people saying, enough already with the corruption in Washington and it#8217s both parties. Its Democrats and Republicans who have been here too long, who#8217ve become captured by this city and #8212 and if you look at #8212 President Trump campaigned on draining the swamp, on term limits.
