The Internet’s Best Responses to John Cornyn’s Latest Display of Cowardice

Share This:

In an editorial board interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cornyn says he broke with Trump on the border wall, but kept opposition private. Of course, Cornyn’s voting record and public statements show the exact opposite, and this willful misrepresentation of his own actual immigration record is classic Cornyn cowardice in his inability to stand up to Trump. It echoes his recent effort to pretend he supports Dreamers when he issued a Spanish language ad that he “strongly supports legalization for Dreamers,” despite voting against bipartisan proposals to secure legal status for Dreamers in 2006, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2018.

Naturally, many were outraged by this latest, embarrassing attempt for Cornyn to try to save his campaign after multiple polls have showed him failing on immigration policy and losing his once secure lead. The internet’s response showed no mercy on this flop and did not disappoint in calling out this hypocrisy.
