The shameful misinterpretation of the beloved American fable Green Eggs and Ham by foreign-born Senator Cruz raises the question, can this man be trusted to uphold our American Constitution? Does he understand anything at all about our sacred American way of life? Sadly the answer seems to be no, given his sickening distortions of the pure truths Dr. Seuss conveyed to generations of innocent American children.
I refer, of course, to Senator Claire McCaskill‘s explanation of the meaning of Green Eggs and Ham on Morning Joe today: “I went to the University of Missouri. I did not go to Harvard. But my daughter texted me this morning and said, ‘Mom, does he not know the point of the story? It’s that you can’t knock things until you try it.'” What makes this all the more horrific is that Senator Cruz had the heartlessness to traumatize his own daughter with his misreading of the story as an anti-Obamacare bedtime tale.
Perhaps if Senator Cruz had not had the misfortune of being born in another country, he could better understand our founding texts and our exceptional values.
