Former Senator Trent Lott â who, as you might remember, walked into a political buzzsaw in 2002 over comments that effectively destroyed his Senate career â highly disapproves of this Senator Ted Cruz fellow. Not least because Senator Cruz said some awful, awful things about former Senator Lottâs good friend, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Itâs always interesting to see how a lobbyist defines âinappropriate behavior,â really. Hoover up all the political pork you can? Thatâs Senatorial. Call Mitch McConnell a liar over the Export-Import Bank? Call out the Sergeant-At-Arms:
âHaving been majority leader, Iâve never had someone stand on the Senate floor and call me a liar,â Lott said in an interview with The Hillâs Molly K. Hooper. âIn fact, if I had been in the Senate at that time I would have moved to have him removed from the Senate chamber physically.â
A few things, here. First, note the on the Senate floor. Thatâs there because any number of people have called Trent Lott a liar over the years. Second: â¦I have been doing this gig since 2001, 2002. I am pretty familiar with how people operate in Washington, DC. And I can say this without much fear of contradiction: Trent Lott is absolutely lying, there. There is not a chance in Perdition that Trent Lott would have willingly provoked a confrontation on the Senate floor like that, pretty much because the inevitable result would have been twofold. First: Lottâs faction in the government would have had even more trouble shoving through the reauthorization of the Export-Import Bank. Second (and much more importantly): Trent Lott would have been a dead man walking in his next Senatorial primary*.

So does Jeb Bush.
Another “the enemy of my enemy” endorsement
And I hate Trent Lott, so there.
Lott was the epitome of the establishment go along to get along weakling.
When you have a dwarf like Tom Daschle rolling you at every turn, its time to hang it up.
Now he’s just another lobbyist whore.
Yet another establishment hack that will probably endorse Trump.
What a great endorsement for Cruz !!!
Truth hurts, eh Trent? Especially in a public forum. You never could handle it.
Lott left the Senate well before Cruz arrives. I wonder if the two have ever even met.
Trent Lott was once a reliable, inspiring conservative. He fell off the rails so long ago that we can’t remember how he once was. MS fails again!
Trump endorsed Chris McDaniel. Cruz cozied up to Lankford & Cochran.
Of that I have no doubt. Scratch a RINO, find an insecure authoritarian.
The King of Squish.
He let the Clinton fungus grow..
What did Hil’s Fbi files have on him?
The sissy couldn’t stand up to the Rat Party, But....he will stand up to a conservative.
What a joke.
I loathe and despise Trent Lott. What a worthless POS is this political hack.
Isn’t he the same Trent lott that let Clinton off the hook?

Who cares what some loser at Redstate.com thinks.
I agree. I may not support Cruz, but this is just silly.
What did Trent Lott do for us in the last ten years?
