Nancy Pelosi decided that it would be a good idea to hand out souvenir pens during her "sad, and somber" signing of the articles of impeachment.

GOP lawmakers took the opportunity to slam Pelosi for her blatant hypocrisy. Ted Cruz's response seems to have won.

According to The Daily Wire:

After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who hypocritically insisted along with other House Democrats that the job of impeaching President Trump was a sad and somber duty, celebrated sending off the articles of impeachment on Wednesday by smiling and offering taxpayer-funded golden pens to those who attended, Senator Ted Cruz (r-TX) had a golden response of his own characterizing the Democrats as buffoonish and childish, which he sent via Twitter: “Given the circus in the House, I’m surprised she didn’t use crayons.”



As The Daily Wire reported earlier Wednesday, Pelosi stated:

So sad, so tragic for our country that the actions taken by the president undermined our national security, to violate his oath of office, and to jeopardize the security of our elections, the integrity of our elections, has taken us to this place. So, today we will make history when the managers walk down the hallway, we will cross a threshold in history, delivering articles of impeachment against the President of the United States for abuse of power and obstruction of the House.

CNN reporter Lauren Fox explained, “So many pens that Pelosi will sign to officially transmit the articles of impeachment and sign resolution appointing House managers. Why so many? They will be given away to members like House managers as a symbol of today.”

Others responded as well:
  Ted Cruz has publically stated that he is confident that the President will be acquitted by the Senate.
