Rpublican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz welcomed Democratic colleagues to boycott Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation hearing for the Supreme Court.
“I will refuse to treat this process as legitimate & will not meet with Judge Amy Coney Barrett,” Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal tweeted Saturday.
“Excellent idea! And if you & all your Dem colleagues boycott the hearing altogether, we’ll avoid the political circus & the desperate attempts to smear Judge Barrett and her family,” Cruz responded on Twitter on Sunday.
“And we’ll confirm her faster!” he added.
