As Ernest Luning reports for the publication formerly known as the Colorado Statesman, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took a shot at Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Denver) over the latter’s official entry into the 2020 Presidential race on Thursday:
Hours after U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet’s Thursday announcement that he’s running for president, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz took to Twitter to compare the Colorado Democrat’s nascent campaign to “Seinfeld,” the landmark 1990s sitcom its creators said was “about nothing.”
The Texas Republican also took a swipe at Bennet’s breakthrough moment, when he tore into Cruz in a passionate speech on the Senate floor during January’s government shutdown, drawing millions of viewers.
“Michael Bennet’s campaign is a Seinfeld campaign — about nothing — that typifies the Left’s empty rage in 2020,” Cruz tweeted.
He continued: “In a decade in the Senate, he’s done very little … but he did stomp his foot & yell at me on Senate floor (which he features in fundraising emails).”
Cruz’s Twitter rhetoric reads a lot like something President Trump might tap out at 3:00 in the morning. The response from Bennet is pure trolling magic:
