(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Ben Sasse (R.-Neb.) gave a speech on the Senate floor on Jan. 13 in which he criticized the address that President Joe Biden had travelled down to Georgia to give and then remarked of the Senate itself that “there are a bunch of morons around this building.”

“He said he was going to try to unify the country, but now he has decided to surrender to a tiny, little far-left group in the mistaken belief that the loudest voices on Twitter actually represent America,” Sasse said of Biden.

“It would be useful for us to pause and recognize that the overwhelming majority of all political tweets in America come from less than 1 and 1/2 percent of Americans,” said Sasse.

“Let's just say that again,” he continued, “because there are a bunch of morons around this building who have decided to take their Twitter feed as reality. It is not reality.”

Here is a transcript of the part of Sen. Sasse’s floor speech where he says of the Senate “there are a bunch of moron’s around this building:”

Sen. Ben Sasse: “So let's go back to last year. Candidate Joe Biden ran for office, promising that he would unify the country. That is why the man was elected--because he said that the crap we went through the last 4 years was wrong. He said he was going to try to unify the country, but now he has decided to surrender to a tiny, little far-left group in the mistaken belief that the loudest voices on Twitter actually represent America.

“It would be useful for us to pause and recognize that the overwhelming majority of all political tweets in America come from less than 1 and 1/2 percent of Americans. Let's just say that again because there are a bunch of morons around this building who have decided to take their Twitter feed as reality. It is not reality.”
