This is so rich as to be completely nauseating.

Ted Cruz. The guy who goaded Republicans into a government shutdown over defunding Obamacare. He wants "bipartisanship" to succeed. Uh-huh.

By the way, Ted, if you're worried about rhetoric getting in the way of a solution, maybe you should have a word with your pr*sident.

Or if you're really worried about bipartisanship, maybe you should talk to House Speaker Paul Ryan, who cements his role as Trump Mini-Me saying "I'm beginning to think Democrats are less interested in keeping families intact and more interested in keeping borders open."

You might also want to have a talk with yourself. It wasn't all that long ago when you were arguing on Fox & Friends that a bipartisan immigration bill would end in electoral disaster for Republicans: "Mark my words, if Republican majorities in Congress pass citizenship for millions of people—an amnesty—I think it is quite likely we will lose both houses of Congress and Speaker Nancy Pelosi will impeach President Trump."

So now you care about a bipartisan solution, Ted? What a difference an impending election makes, huh?
