Ted Cruz appeared to mock Nancy Pelosi's infamous handclap on the floor of the Senate Friday after 51 Republicans voted against calling witnesses in President Trump's impeachment trial - effectively ending Democrat's attempts to remove him from office.
The Texas senator, 49, was seen mimicking the clap as he spoke with other Republicans, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, before the vote was called around 5 pm.
Last year, Speaker Pelosi 'condescendingly' clapped her hands at President Trump following his State Of The Union address - a move which sparked international headlines and a flurry of memes.
On Friday, Cruz's imitation of the distinct gesture quickly went viral on Twitter, where it divided users.
Some supporters called the clap 'hilarious' and 'awesome', while one detractor claimed that the moment was unbecoming of a senator during such a somber proceeding.

Pelousi's Impeachment Articles are a joke and should be treated as such.
Yes, yap yap about Nancy “throwing shade”.

My second favorite clip..after the Nadler race
Nancy is in the late stage manifestations of “the clap”.
Unbecoming, oh, like at a SOTU you mean?
But calling the President, 53 Senators and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, traitors, illegitimate, conspirators and partisan hacks was OK? They deserve to be mocked mercilessly.
Ted Cruz is the next best thing to Donald Trump. What a great man and scholar too.
It was the least somber thing I’ve ever seen. What a disgusting and frivolous spectacle, no matter how many times she uttered “prayerful” and “we are upholding the constitution.”
On Friday there was a thread here on FR announcing that Willard had been disinvited from the CPAC coming up soon, and that he would be barred from entering the conference because of his backstabbing vote. I’m surprised that it’s only appeard that one time. IMO, it should be trumpeted from the rooftops.
Well looka Harris! Did one of those guys goose her? Looks like it.
Agree. Willard, and his alter ego Pierre Delecto, are an abject disgrace and should be disinvited from the party. Allowing him to undermine both the president and the party is intolerable. Give him the boot.
That CPAC news hit the radio airways a lot yesterday. They’re even playing clips of it today. ..I smile every time I hear it.
Nancy has become quite famous for the clap.
Yep, I like ‘em both — Trump and Cruz.
At least Cruz didn’t drop 5 kilobucks on souvenir pens with his signature on them.
