Even Ted Cruz was amused by Bernie Sanders’ giant Trump tweet on the Senate floor

As the U.S. Senate debates the repeal of Obamacare, Bernie Sanders utilized the time-honored tradition of senators using visual aids on the floor by displaying an enlarged printout of one of president-elect Donald Trump’s tweets, where he promised not to cut Medicare and Medicaid benefits.

Trump fired off the tweet in May of 2015, saying, “I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.”

According to Sanders, Trump’s rhetoric as of late proves that he was outright lying.

“Millions of people voted for him on the belief that he would keep his word,” Sanders said referring to Trump’s promises during his campaign.

“If he was sincere, then I would hope that tomorrow or maybe today he could send out a tweet and tell his Republican colleagues to stop wasting their time and all of our time,” Sanders continued. “And for Mr. Trump to tell the American people that he will veto any proposal that cuts Medicare, that cuts Medicaid or that cuts Social Security.”

Sanders’ new tactic of putting Trump’s words on display was received with widespread praise. According to Sanders’ Deputy Communications Director Mike Casca, even Ted Cruz chuckled in amusement as he carried the tweet display to the Senate floor.
