Ted Cruz is in full Ted Cruz mode following Supreme Court rulings late this week affirming Obamacare insurance subsidies and legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

"Today, it's some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation's history," Cruz told Sean Hannity on his radio program.

Slamming the rulings as "naked and shameless judicial activism," the Texas senator and 2016 GOP presidential candidate promised to continue his crusade for repeal of the health care reform law signed by President Obama in 2010, and touted his proposed constitutional amendment to allow states to ban same-sex marriage.

Hannity, you'll be shocked to learn, shared Cruz's apocalyptic view.
