Cotton’s response to this: difference between Steve King and Lindsey Graham is that “Steve King can actually win in Iowa.”

Yes. He wants to be dictator, I mean president more than Paul Ryan. His arrogance is insufferable.

He's worse than I thought.
Tom Cotton Is Simply a Less Impulsive Trump

When John Kelly and Stephen Miller wanted some hardline anti-immigration congressmen (read: nativists) to join the White House meeting last Thursday where Senators Durbin and Graham had been invited to talk to the president about their bipartisan deal on DACA, one of the people they turned to was Senator Tom Cotton.

That’s the guy who is angling to become the next CIA director when/if Trump decides to get rid of Rex Tillerson and replace him with Mike Pompeo. If we were to grade Republican members of congress on how much they are kissing up to Trump these days, Cotton would get an A+. :snippity:

On a more personal level, there was the case of Obama’s nominee to the Bahamas, Cassandra Butts. Cotton first put a hold on her confirmation over an issue he had with the secret service. But that was eventually cleared up and Cotton continued the hold. Frank Bruni got the story about why.

Butts confronted Cotton over his continued hold. “She told me that she once went to see [Sen. Tom Cotton] about it, and he explained that he knew that she was a close friend of Obama’s — the two first encountered each other on a line for financial-aid forms at Harvard Law School, where they were classmates — and that blocking her was a way to inflict special pain on the president.”

Cassandra Butts died two years, three months and 19 days after she was nominated, with Cotton’s hold still in place.

More details about Tom Cotton's lying words and ways. :madguy:

Cotton Tales
Tom Cotton’s lies make him a dangerous prospect to head the CIA


On immigration, Cotton takes a hard line, and he savages anyone who doesn’t. He calls senators who seek an immigration compromise “the Gang of Amnesty.” He labels their ideas “preposterous” and “utterly ridiculous.” Last week, he scoffed that fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, an immigration moderate, “didn’t even make it off the kiddie table in the debates” during the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. On Tuesday, after the government shutdown, Cotton crowed that Democrats had “capitulated entirely.”

Cotton is quick to charge others with lying. Two weeks ago, he accused colleagues of floating a “disingenuous” immigration compromise. He said Democrats had “misrepresent[ed]” immigration talks. On Friday, Cotton accused Graham of conspiring with Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin: “Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin are not adversaries in negotiating. They are allies strategizing.” That line has been used exactly once before, by an anonymous member of Congress—presumably Cotton—who accused House Speaker Paul Ryan of treachery on the same issue.
