- Sen. Ted Cruz aggressively questioned SCOTUS nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson on Wednesday.
- Immediately afterward, the Texas Senator was pictured checking Twitter.
- A photojournalist with the Los Angeles Times tweeted that Cruz was "searching for his name."


Sen. Ted Cruz was photographed checking his Twitter mentions immediately after he aggressively questioned the Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson in a confirmation hearing on Wednesday.

During the hearing, Cruz went over his 20-minute allotted questioning time and repeatedly ignored requests from Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, to stop grilling Jackson.

He had been asking her about her sentencing record on child-pornography cases, a topic which she repeatedly defended throughout the week.

Shortly after the heated exchange between Durbin and Cruz, Los Angeles Times reporter Nolan D. McCaskill tweeted a photo of the Texas senator in which he appears to be looking down at his phone.

They are doing all of this for pandering. . .nothing more.

17. Why are the Major networks normalizing abuse by GOZ by ignoring it or even playing it up??

Isnít this jaw dropping news and evidence of who they are?

Not covering he abuse means the Majors are factoring the abuseÖitís startling truth.

Maddening what the majors donít coverÖbut coverup they can do fine.

3. I have little problem believing Cruz was looking for positive feedback, but did anyone actually SEE

what was on the phone he was looking at?

Could have just as easily been prices on flights to Cancun.

5. Cruz is Pavlov's dog and Twitter is the bell.

What better example of the fact that he and the rest of them do not care about her ability nor any slights in her record, they are just playing to their base and making sure they keep that anger going. And, he is shameless in his lack of ability to even try to appear respectable. It is disgusting.

6. Perhaps that's the Porn-Hub Boss Key feature which pops up a dummy Twitter image when needed.

10. The Republicans who badgered Jackson were all over FOX News primetime last night.

Today they are all over the RW Hate Radio.

Mission Accomplished!

16. Precisely...the audience is not us, or anyone intelligent, it is The CultZ and FoxZ.

Rupert MurdickZ is a monster, these are his millionaire on air minions at FoxZ.

Money and fleeting fame gathers a lot of demon followers.

14. Can't this repulsive,"look at me" behavior be subject to censure by the Senate?

I mean this is way over the top especially the way he treated the Chairman.

There should be a bipartisan panel to monitor outrageous performance rants. Maybe limit their "personal opinion" time and have a buzzer go off after 5 minutes and announce it as such.

18. There are mike controls, right?

I've long advocated for every elected official to have to sit in a chair that is wired.

Wired to deliver warning shocks, harmful shocks, and deadly shocks, depending on a percentage of their voters approving/disapproving current actions.

I'd love to see some repuglicons get fried.
