BOOM: Joy Reid Calls Out Ted Cruz For Claiming He Opposes Shutdowns: You’re Not Even A Good Liar

The Daily Beast reports:

Asked whether shutdowns should be used as political leverage, Cruz bafflingly replied, “We should not be shutting the government down. I have consistently opposed shutdowns. In 2013, I said we shouldn’t shut the government down; I went to the floor asking unanimous consent to reopen the government.” When Hunt noted that he actually “stood in the way of that,” Cruz snapped back that his role in the 2013 shutdown is just “a wonderful media narrative.”
