Far-Left Hollywood Actor: 'My American Brother' Ted Cruz, Tea Party Lawmakers Need to Be Committed to Asylum by 'Executive Order

"He's my American brother. I think we should take care of him, he is in trouble."

Far-left actor Sean Penn told CNN's Piers Morgan on Monday that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and other Tea Party lawmakers serving in Congress have "mental health" problems and should be committed through an executive order.

"There's a mental health problem in Congress," Penn proclaimed. "This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think. Because these are our American brothers and sisters, we shouldn't be criticizing them, attacking them … this is a cry for help."

"You literally commit what, people like Ted Cruz?" Morgan asked.

"He's my American brother. I think we should take care of him, he is in trouble," Penn replied. "I think it's a good idea."

Giving Penn the benefit of the doubt, he seemed to be clearly joking as he and Morgan shared a laugh.

Ironically, Penn went on to lament the fact that people in America help "self-destruct" the country's promise partly by "saying nasty things about each other" and "being crazy."
