Elise Jordan Slams Josh Hawley: ‘You Have to Work Really Hard to Be More Loathed than Ted Cruz’
JORDAN: "Well, I just want to second what Matt said about Josh Hawley just going out of his way to really out-Cruz Ted Cruz, which is quite something. And you just have to really work hard to try to be more loathed than Ted Cruz, but Josh Hawley seems to have decided that is his way and his glide path to the Republican nomination. I was struck, though, by the bipartisan cooperation and by Sen. Susan Collins, what she did on the other side of the aisle with Senator Hirono. And 'The 19th' has great reporting on how those two women worked together to bring together this bipartisan group and consensus that it’s completely unacceptable that there have been over 3,800 reported hate crimes against Asian Americans over the last year. And so that — the overwhelming 94 votes for this bill shows the seriousness with which lawmakers are taking this. And it’s a strong statement and it’s an important one, and I’m glad that we could come together on this issue."
