Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro jabbed at Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Wednesday night for agreeing to help President Donald Trump, who has called the senator’s wife ugly and accused his father of being involved in the JFK assassination, try to overturn the election results via the Supreme Court.
“He has proven himself to be neither a genius in the law or a genius, frankly, in terms of an EQ. He is a sad sack,” Shapiro told CNN after it was reported that Cruz had accepted Trump’s request to argue the Texas attorney general’s long shot lawsuit (which is backed by 17 other GOP attorneys general) to invalidate Pennsylvania and other swing states’ votes if it ends up in the high court.
“And I would say to him, and frankly I’d say to my 17 colleagues who’ve gone along with this circus, I don’t know if I need to send you a surgeon to examine your spine or a psychiatrist to examine your head, but something’s wrong with you,” the Pennsylvania attorney general added. “If you continue to follow this President, if you continue to behave in these bizarro ways, if you continue to hold yourself out as a legal expert yet demonstrate day in and day out with your support of this President and his claims, then you don’t know anything about the law.”

"This suit that was filed by my colleague from Texas is uniquely unserious. It is based on bizarro conspiracy theories. It is based on issues that have been litigated and dismissed."
