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.”

So much for “somber” and “solemn.”— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) January 15, 2020
House Dems are so excited about impeachment that they’re passing out commemorative pens and grinning for photos at a celebration ceremony.
They claim it's a somber, serious occasion they're heartbroken over... and then they pass out impeachment-signing pens with special cases. Folks. You can't make it up. https://t.co/jl9VKD8cUc— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) January 15, 2020
Ted Cruz has publically stated that he is confident that the President will be acquitted by the Senate.
This is neither a “somber” nor is it a “serious” process for House Democrats it’s just another made for TV moment at the expense of our Country.— Rep. Paul Gosar, DDS (@RepGosar) January 15, 2020
