Florida Congressman Alan Grayson told radio host Alan Colmes Wednesday that if Ted Cruz is elected president, he “will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he’s unqualified for the job” according to the Constitution.
Cruz was born in Canada to a native-born American mother, making the presidential candidate a dual Canadian-American citizen. It was not until a 2013 Dallas Morning News article that Cruz acknowledged his Canadian citizenry publicly. In 2014, the senator renounced his Canadian citizenship altogether.
Lamenting the “appalling choices” Republicans have to choose among, Grayson told Colmes the Republican race “resolved itself into this weird reality show.”
“It’s not ‘The Biggest Loser’ that they’re choosing, it’s ‘The Biggest Bigot,’” Grayson said challenging Colmes to show him one candidate “who represents the exception here.” “In a sense, I guess, Cruz is not technically that way — because technically he’s not even an America,” Grayson added.
