Ted Cruz, the supreme politician with eyes on the White House

Ted Cruz and Beto O'Rourke Got Into it with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog: WATCH Watch Triumph The Insult Comic Dog Insult Ted Cruz Right To His Face

A three-term House member and onetime member of a punk rock band, O'Rourke was virtually unknown outside his Texas-Mexico border hometown of El Paso before announcing in March 2017 that he was taking on a seemingly unwinnable race against Cruz. "Ted Cruz and Rep. Beto O'Rourke resting on the state's shifting demographics and political climate, and on sharply contrasting views of President Donald Trump", writes Dallas News. One topic of discussion was the recent reports of voting machines switching people's votes from O'Rourke to Cruz.

Cruz tied himself to Trump in the final days of the campaign, inviting the president for a major rally in Texas. Triumph shouts third degree burns at the senator like: "You can't ignore me, Ted!" Still, late summer polls showed the challenger within striking distance.

After interviewing some voters, Triumph found Beto, asking if it concerns him if half his base thinks they can vote for him through Instagram, and if he's anxious about Texas voting machines.

"This is the man, what's Ted Cruz have that you don't have?"

After interviewing the candidates, Triumph joined in with Cruz supporters to chant that he is a "lion of the Senate". "Because he's a ugly fish monster!" Triumph responded by saying "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you". "I'm not 'overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming'". "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?"

"Ted, is it true you will defend the constitution at all costs?"

Cruz did show the humility to pay tribute to O'Rourke for his campaign - as the boos rang out among his supporters - and what he had done to mobilise and energise young voters. It's wild that these people are laughing along and agreeing with Triumph, yet are STILL voting for Cruz.

Triumph buttonholed Cruz, who came with a zinger, telling the comic dog puppet, "Just remember, it was the Dems that took you into the vets to get fixed".
