Comedian, Seth Meyers, didn’t hold back asking his guest, Senator Ted Cruz, the tough questions about gay marriage and climate control during his March 16 appearance on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’. So how did the Republican Senator do in the hot seat? Click to watch!

Ted Cruz, 44, may be used to appearing on Fox or CNN, but on March 16 the Tea Party fixture mixed it up with his appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Having just come under fire for frightening a 3-year-old girl during his speech in New Hampshire, Sen. Cruz did some major damage control during his late night appearance. And, of course, Seth Meyers used his wit to grill Ted too!

Seth Meyers Confronts Ted Cruz About Climate Control & Gay Marriage

Seth disarmed Ted while challenging him to explain why he opposes same-sex marriage, especially when 59% of Americans support it.

“Yet, you just passed a bill that says states should be able to decide on their own. Why take up that cause now when it seems like it’s inevitable that the tide of progress is going to turn that way?” inquired Seth.

The potential GOP Tea Party candidate in 2016 explained that he believes it should be an issue decided by the states.

“Listen, I am a Constitutionalist. For over 200 years marriage has been a question for the states. Now, personally, I believe in traditional marriage between one man and one woman, but if you want to change the marriage laws…the way to do it constitutionally is to convince your fellow citizens, go to the state legislature and change it,” responded the senator.

But, Seth, didn’t just stop there. The comedian also confronted the politician about his stance on climate control.

Seth Meyers Grills Ted Cruz About Trusting ‘Computers’

“Debates on this should follow science and should follow data. And, many of the alarmist on global warning they have a problem because the science doesn’t back them up and in particular, satellite data demonstrate for the last 17 years that there’s been zero warming — none whatsoever…”

“So you trust satellites more than computers?” retorted Seth.

Well, kudos to Seth for asking Ted the tough questions while also making us laugh along the way.

Plus, the politician seemed to showed off his sense of humor, which is why this appearance seemed to be a win-win.
