MSNBC host Chris Matthews called Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) a "political terrorist" on Wednesday night's edition of "Hardball."
"I will say he's a terrorist because what the guy has done basically says my goal is demolition -- blow up health care, blow up the continuing resolution, bring the government to a standstill and then make us forfeit on the national debt," Matthews said.
I say, If Muslim extremists were threatening to bring down the American economy because they do not like whom the American people choose as their President, Anchor Baby Cruz would be the first calling for all out war! Cruz, Paul, and Lee are traitors and should be treated as such!!!
"You tell me how that's not what he was trying to do here. Bring the government to default so it's not paying its bills. Stop the government from functioning and bring down bills that have created institutions like Obamacare that have already been decided upon -- blow them up after they were brought into law. Blow up the government's ability to pay bills it has already run up," Matthews continued. "If that's not causing chaos, what is it?"
