Sally Yates Just Smacked Down Ted Cruz. Twitter’s Response Is EPIC

In today’s much anticipated Senate Intelligence Committee hearing looking into President Trump and former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s secret communications with Russia, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) used his time for an ill-fated effort to discredit former acting Attorney General Sally Yates.

The Senator tried to ambush Yates with an off-topic question about the legality of her’ decision not to enforce Trump’s Muslim ban, but Yates replied with a swift smackdownShe cited the actual law. Reading aloud from the Immigration and Nationality Act, she said “No person shall receive preference or be discriminated against in issuance of a visa because of race, nationality, or place of birth.”

Cruz’s humiliating moment exposed his partisan agenda, and the twitterverse loved it. Below are some of the best retorts. Enjoy:
