Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton unloaded on Harry Reid in an epic speech from the Senate floor on Wednesday.
The freshman Republican senator said he would never complain about the “tasks” set before him, but he confessed “there is one small burden I bear.” He then proceeded to shred the Senate Minority Leader, saying he is “forced to listen to the bitter, vulgar, incoherent ramblings” of Sen.Reid on a regular basis.
“Normally, like every other American, I ignore them,” Cotton said, “I can’t ignore them today,” he added, referring to Reid’s bashing of Republicans for rushing to pass a defense bill. “When was the last time the minority leader read a bill? It was probably an electricity bill,” Cotton said.
But he was far from finished.
The Nevada senator’s delays, Cotton said, were “to protect his own sad, sorry, legacy.”
Cotton, who at 39 is the youngest member of the Senate, remarked about enduring Reid’s daily complaints that the Senate is not in session enough.
“Whatever you think about that, the happy by-product of fewer days in session in the Senate is that this institution will be cursed less with his cancerous leadership,” he said.
Social media users quickly responded, and even Cotton himself followed up with a Twitter post that said: “Open secret: most Senate Democrats feel the same about Harry Reid.”

@guypbenson Why havn’t the senior senators, like McCain, who’ve seen Reid’s slanders for years said what Cotton just did? Simple, no balls.
