Jimmy Kimmel mocks Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as typically as he can throughout his late-night present. But he appears to have touched a nerve on Monday evening and this time, Cruz fired again on Twitter.
Kimmel went after Cruz in his monologue for sharing a Russian military recruitment advert and dismissing the U.S. navy as “woke” and “emasculated.”
“Ted Cruz, who four years ago took permanent residence up the ass of a man who beat him in every election by calling his wife ugly and slandering his elderly father, says this is emasculating. Primarily because Ted Cruz is not human. He is a moist, gelatinous tubeworm whose elastic-band pants are filled with an inky discharge every time he speaks.”
The late-night host typically compares Cruz to a blobfish and even referred to as their one-on-one basketball match in 2018 “The Blobfish Basketball Classic.”
Cruz tweeted a reference to that match and steered they settle it on the court docket once more:
Kimmel didn’t precisely settle for the problem:
Cruz beat Kimmel within the sport, however it wasn’t recognized for its highlights.
“Just like a blobfish, the game was sloppy and within moments we were gasping for air,” Kimmel cracked afterward. “We played one on one. It took almost an hour to get to 6 points ― which would be a lot if this was a World Cup soccer game. But it was not.”
The sport was anticipated to go to fifteen factors, however they wrapped it up at 11-9.
The loser was purported to donate $5,000 to the charity of the winner’s selection. Instead, Kimmel donated $10,000 to each charities ― Texas Children’s Hospital and Generation One in Houston ― and Cruz did the identical.
“You’re a good sport,” Kimmel told Cruz after the game. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
