Triumph Insult Comic Dog: Ted Cruz So Racist He Got 9 AM Hour of ‘Today’

Triumph Insult Comic Dog: Ted Cruz So Racist He Got 9 AM Hour of ‘Today’

Hours before polls closed in one of America's most closely watched Senate races pop superstar Beyonce lent her support to Beto O'Rourke, the Texas Democratic candidate hoping to unseat Republican Ted Cruz. In contrast, Cruz raised $40 million. The most recent Emerson poll (October 30) showing Cruz at +3, and the latest Quinnipiac (October 28) showing +5, the RealClearPolitics average is giving Cruz a Cruz +6.8 over O'Rourke.

The Democrat got the endorsement of Texan Willie Nelson, who performed at a rally. Republicans typically have a double-digit advantage over their Democratic counterparts in the deep red state. Trump traveled to Houston in late October on Cruz's behalf. "Donald Trump for insulting his wife or that mongoose for eating his offspring". "It's why the nickname stuck - because it's true".

Robert Smigel, as Triumph, has fun roasting the lefties who turn out for O'Rourke, but he saves his best material for dragging Cruz within an inch of his life. He was profiled in publications as varied as The New York Times, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and GQ (twice) and speculation that O'Rourke could use a win or close loss as a springboard to a spot on the Democrats' 2020 ticket began to percolate.

"Really interesting to hear you talk about a partisan circus after your six years in the US Senate", O'Rourke shot back, alluding to Cruz's role in leading the Republicans in 2013 to shutting down the government.

Using my finger on the touchscreen isn't terrible , but there is definitely a difference between that and just using the trackpad. If you are interested in purchasing the iPad Pro and maximizing your productivity, you might want to give this accessory a try.

"For a whole lot of conservative and moderate Democrats in Texas, they feel like they don't have a home in that national party anymore and we are welcoming them with open arms", Cruz told The Associated Press last week.

First, Triumph visited the O'Rourke camp, where he mocked the candidate's attempt at punk music in the 1990s.

Finally, Cruz tries to get in a zinger about how it was the Democrats who neutered Triumph, and the Insult Comic Dog is ready for it. "Just like Trump did to you".
