In an interview with radio host Mark Levin at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, the Republican Senator argued that his Democratic counterparts are “opposing everything.”

“The anger on the left — I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said. “I mean, they’re right now opposing everything. Democrats in the Senate are filibustering absolutely everything.”

He then added that the Democratic base is “bat-crap crazy.”
