On Wednesday, Senator Ted Cruz (TX-R) slammed Democrats for their opposition to Senator Jeff Sessions (AL-R), President Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general.

During an interview with Fox News, Cruz said:

When the left doesn’t have any other arguments, they go and just accuse everyone of being a racist, and it’s an ugly, ugly part of the modern Democratic Party.

Listen, the Democrats are the party of the Ku Klux Klan. You look at the most racists, you look at … the Dixiecrats, they were Democrats who imposed segregation, imposed Jim Crow laws.

Cruz was criticizing Democrats for raising allegations of racism against Sessions according to The Hill.

Senator Elizabeth Warren (MS-D) on Tuesday evening was barred from speaking on the Senate Floor after she quoted a speech from 1986 when Senator Ted Kennedy (MS-D) called Sessions a “disgrace” to the Justice Department.

Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY-R) said Warren’s comments about Sessions broke Senate rules, pointing to Warren quoting a letter form the late Coretta Scott King, a civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King, Jr.

In 1986 King wrote that Sessions “had used the awesome power of his office to chill the free exercise of the vote by black citizens” while he was a U.S. attorney in Alabama.

Cruz’s response to that was:

The charges that she was making against Jeff Sessions are demonstrably false. They’re slanderous. Jeff Sessions is an honorable, decent person.
