During an appearance Sunday on Meet the Press, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz expanded on his comments that America had seen one of its worst 24 hours with the Supreme Court's rulings on marriage and Obamacare.

“Today is some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation's history,” Cruz said during an appearance last week on The Sean Hannity Show.

“In a period of 24 hours we had two decisions of the Supreme Court where a majority of the justices violated their judicial oaths,” Cruz said Sunday. “In one, they ignored the text of federal law, they rewrote Obamacare, forcing that failed law on millions of Americans.”

“And the next day, five justices disregarded the text of the constitution and purported to strike down the marriage laws of all 50 states.”

Cruz added that he agrees with Justice Antonin Scalia, who said in his dissents that the decisions are an assault on Democracy.

“I think when the Supreme Court violates their oaths and undermines the constitution, that is a grave threat to our nation,” Cruz said.
