Sen. Ted Cruz continues to be a problem. Today he decided to pontificate at the Senate hearing on Stand Your Ground laws on how useful this law is for Black people while standing in front of Black families whose children are dead.

Want more blatant manipulation of the facts?

OBAMA! SOCIALIST! AMERICA IS BEING RUINED!
