It’s about time! Ted Cruz finally stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ March 30 to sit down with the host and show us his funny side. He gave a priceless answer when asked which enemy he liked better, Donald Trump or President Barack Obama.
Hah! Sen. Ted Cruz, 45, took some time out of his rough and hectic Republican presidential campaign against Donald Trump, 69, to get in some laughs alongside Jimmy Kimmel, 48. The host posed the question we all want to know: does Ted hate Donald Trump even more than President Barack Obama, 54, who he goes at with such merciless fury? You’ll never believe his hilarious answer.
“Who do you like better, President Obama or Donald Trump?” Jimmy asked Ted, who responded with, “I dislike Obama’s policies more, but Donald is a unique individual,” giving a knowing look that he absolutely can’t stand The Donald. Then he made it clear he would even run over the tycoon with a car if he had the chance!
“I will say, I was watching the early part of the show and if were in my car and getting ready to reverse, if I saw Donald in my back up camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push,” he revealed to loud applause. Hah! We love that he got so real on the topic.
Ted played it casual for the interview, in a light gray suit with no tie. Even his make up was far less than he uses on the campaign trail. Jimmy joked with him about how hated he was within the party, but Ted laughed it off, explaining how former enemy Sen. Lindsay Graham, 60, is now holding his fundraisers and he said at one last week, “This is the first event I’ve ever had hosted by someone who three weeks ago publicly called for my murder.”
“So you held out until they (Republican Party) found someone they like less than you,” Jimmy quipped before Ted agreed and said, “There ya go, it is a powerful strategy and compared to Donald I’m the quiet, shy soft-spoken one.” Stream music, completely unlimited and ad-free RIGHT HERE
Ted didn’t get off so easy on his policies, as Jimmy laid into him about how Ted’s use of “disaster” seems like too strong a word to use to describe Obamacare. “It’s not a disaster with millionaire Hollywood movie stars and rock stars,” Ted replied, inferring to Jimmy’s famous guests before the host jumped in and asked, “Do yo these are the only people I hang around with?” They also had a VERY heated discussion about Ted’s plan to have police patrol Muslim neighborhoods where Jimmy really let Ted have it.
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Ted’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel? Did it make you like him more?
