Texas Senator Ted Cruz mocked the televised speech Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave in response to President Donald Trump’s Tuesday speech on the need for a border barrier.

During a “Hannity” appearance with fellow Texas Senator John Cornyn, Cruz blamed the government shutdown on Schumer, then joined Fox News host Sean Hannity in poking fun at the minority leader’s speech alongside Speaker Pelosi.

“Their objection isn’t on substance,” said Cruz, referring to Democrats who refused to fund President Trump’s proposed border barrier. “I mean Schumer and the rest of them voted for $40 billion just a few years ago. Their objection is pure politics. They hate the president. Their left wing base hates the president. And Chuck Schumer, this is now the second Schumer shutdown in a year. He forced one earlier because he wanted to see amnesty. He forced the second one because he wants to see open borders and I know you watched the president’s address earlier this week and then Schumer and Pelosi …”

Hannity interrupted, calling the speech “the ‘Saturday Night Live’ skit that followed.”

“If ‘Saturday Night Live’ were remotely fair that will be their opening, but they won’t make fun of Democrats,” Cruz joked. “I promise you they won’t do it.”

Hannity quipped that even with “Saturday Night Live,” it would be “impossible to be that biased.”

“Look, I have got to say though that thing when I saw Schumer and Pelosi, that thing looks like a hostage video,” said Cruz.

“Hostage videos could be more compelling,” responded Hannity, laughing.

But the Texas junior Senator wasn’t finished. “And I am just about certain if you watch it again in slow motion, Nancy is blinking SOS as Schumer is talking. They know they are in the wrong and the American people know they are in the wrong,” he said.

Cruz wasn’t the first to poke fun at Cruz and Pelosi after their awkward speech.

    They look like the couple on the old TV show ‘Green Acres’, on drugs.

    The Dems’ resistance goes a lot further than just hating Trump. They had made promises on building a wall, but did they ever even start with the work? No! They have not ever had any intention of building a wall – it goes against their policy of globalism > New World Order > Illuminati > world domination > slavery and death to the masses. Polosi and the other dem henchmen will not budge from their stance of No, never, no wall.

    CHUCKY AND NANCY AND ALL THE DEMOCRATIC POLITICIANS HATE PRESIDENT TRUMP BECAUSE HE IS BEING SO SUCCESSFUL. THE ECONOMY IS BOOMING, GAS AND OIL PRICES WAY DOWN AND JUST ABOUT EVERYONE THAT WANTS TO WORK HAS A JOB. WE HAVE WAY TOO MANY DEAD BEAT DEMOCRATS THAT DO “NOT” WANT TO WORK, JUST LIVE OFF THE GOVERNMENT FREEBEES. THOSE LOW LIFES WILL ALWAYS VOTE DEMOCRATIC. IF TRUMP WAS A DEMOCRAT, PELOSI WOULD BE SWOONING IN FRONT OF HIM AND CHUCKY WOULD BE KISSING HIS RING..

      Does anyone wonder why Democrats are for allowing drugs, human smuggling, gun smuggling? Could it possibly be that they are profiting off all this?
      Remember the Fast & Furious Gun Smuggling Scandal that Obama & Hillary were running? Fact: Drug Cartel Druglord’s donated to Hillary’s campaign. Democrats are
      the ones with all the money, they are the Rich People in America.
      Hey Democrats How Much Money are you Making off keeping Borders Open?????
