After President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate accords, the reaction from liberals has been nothing short of unhinged.

It was a liberal Harvard professor, though, who took the prize for single dumbest tweet. And the reaction from Harvard alum Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, has us cheering.

Joyce E. Chaplin, the chair of American Studies and history professor at Harvard University, tweeted that the U.S. was created by the international community through the 1783 Treaty of Paris.  

That prompted Sen. Cruz to completely roast this supposed academic’s historical ignorance.

It’s sad that Cruz needs to remind a Harvard history professor that the treaty ending the Revolutionary War was not an agreement by the “international community.” But, honestly, did anyone expect any different from the radical leftists running our nation’s “top” universities?
