Speaking to Fox News Thursday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.) called the smears against his GOP colleague “disgusting” before slamming Democrats and Twitter for allowing a racial slur to trend.
“Tim is a good friend, and he understands the miracle of opportunity that is America, that there’s no nation in the history of the world that has enabled so many people to start with nothing and achieve the American dream,” the Texas senator began.
After praising Scott for his characterization of racism in America, Cruz turned his focus toward Twitter, which allowed the racial slur “Uncle Tim” to appear on it’s list of trending topics for 12 hours after the speech.
