Ted Cruz embarasses Chris Matthews over Supreme Court – video

2016 Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz pushed back on Chris Matthew’s MSNBC program during a discussion surrounding GOP objection the Supreme Court rulings, especially accusations that the judicial branch overstepped their authority.

On whether the Supreme Court has become too “partisan” following the high court’s recent decisions on Obamacare and gay marriage, Matthews insinuates hypocrisy, accusing Cruz of “loving” it when the Supreme Court “seized the presidency in 2000” for former President George W. Bush during the infamous Florida recount fiasco.

“If there was ever a case of partisanship or ideology getting out of hand, it was 2000 — and you loved it!” Matthews said.

“Those are great talking points,” Cruz replied. He then asked, “How many times did they count the ballots in Florida?”

“Four times,” Matthews answered.

“Four times. How many times did Bush win?” Cruz pressed.

“Four times,” the MSNBC host admitted. “But they wanted to try one more time. Aren’t states allowed to do that?”

The clip is below.

Cruz is among the crowded pool of candidates vying for the GOP nomination in 2016.
