Triumph the Insult Comic Dog mocks Ted Cruz on the campaign trail


"Nobody should be yelling at this man in a public place", Triumph said, mocking calls for civility after Cruz was shouted out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant.

What pundits are saying: Nate Silver reports that Cruz's lead narrowed, noting that one of the polls they cite is a Democrat polling outlet, but FiveThirtyEight is still marking the seat as "Likely R", with a 7-in-9 chance Cruz wins (78.8%). Triumph, a.k.a. comic Robert Smigel, asked an O'Rourke supporter. The president's campaign hosted an all-day tailgate and a rally for supporters, while Trump gave Cruz a new nickname: "Beautiful Ted". Without giving them all away, here are the seven sickest burns Triumph lands on Ted Cruz.

Triumph attended rallies for both O'Rourke and Cruz, with hilarious results.

"If Ted loses, do you think he'll end up back with his first love, that mute lady from The Shape of Water?".

The singer joins a number of other celebrities - including fellow Houston native Travis Scott - who have voiced support for the candidate. "See, because he's a ugly fish monster". "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?"

Facebook Shut Down More Than 100 Accounts Possibly Linked To Midterm Interference
Russian Federation is accused of propaganda campaign in favour of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential vote. Facebook has since identified and removed 30 Facebook accounts and 85 Instagram accounts.

Responded Triumph: "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you!"

But Triumph later turned it into a chant of "Lyin" Ted'. "I'm not 'overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming'".

The event comes as President Donald Trump has deployed thousands of active-duty service members to the border in response to a caravan of migrants from Central America moving through Mexico.

"Just remember, it wasn't the Republicans, it was the Democrats that took you into the vet to get fixed", Cruz came back with, at his best attempt of a joke. Triumph jokingly suggests that voters of color should "act more white" by dropping The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel into conversation, and mentioning Ed Sheeran as much as possible. Ted Cruz now lives inside of a burn ward.
