Ed Rendell: To the 'American People,' Ted Cruz 'Looks Like a Jerk'

During a “Hardball” segment on MSNBC comparing former Sen. Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell (D) said the freshman senator “looks like a jerk.” 

TIME political columnist Joe Klein said Cruz is a brilliant lawyer. But Rendell swiftly shot back on the Thursday program.

“I disagree with that a little bit,” the former governor said. “Cruz might be a brilliant lawyer and may have phrased it in legalese, but to the American people, he looks like a jerk, acting against the country at a time we should be coming together. I think they are making big mistake.”
