Ted Cruz: ‘Today Is Some Of The Darkest 24 Hours In Our Nation’s History’


Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Friday counted two major Supreme Court decisions on same-sex marriage and Obamacare among the bleakest days in America’s past.

“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history,” Cruz said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Yesterday and today were both naked and shameless judicial activism.”

Hannity agreed, saying, “I couldn’t say it more eloquently.”

Cruz continued: “For the second time, six justices joined the Obama administration … six justices responsible for forcing this failed disaster of a law on millions of Americans and simply rewriting the law.”

“And then today, this radical decision purporting to down the marriage laws of every state. It has no connection to the United States Constitution. They are simply making it up,” Cruz, no stranger to sticky situations on gay rights, said. “It is lawless, and in doing so, they have undermined the fundamental legitimacy of the United States Supreme Court.”
