Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) rudely dismissed criticism by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — and he was blasted by other social media users.

Schumer explained why he and other Democrats voted against the Republican coronavirus relief package, saying it did not focus on hospitals and health care workers, and Cornyn replied by saying, “Blah blah blah.”

Other social media users found his response severely lacking.
