Senator Kevin Cramer (R-North Dakota) is facing questions regarding a tweet on the contentious battle over the Phase 3 CoronaVirus stimulus package.
On Tuesday evening, Cramer re-tweeted a story from Daily Caller, regarding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's obstruction to the bi-partisan Senate legislation and added the word "retarded".
Cramer tells WZFG News he had typed the word "ridiculous". As soon as he noticed the error, he deleted the tweet a few moments later.
“I was literally typing with my thumbs 'she's ridiculous' and I sent it,” he said. “Of course, when I saw what I posted I deleted it.
“Calling her ridiculous, that's one thing," Cramer added, "but retarded, that's not acceptable."
