The Jury Talks Back


#Winning: Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel in One on One

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 9:04 am

Ted Cruz defeated Jimmy Kimmel in a game of one-on-one for charity:

“The reason this is happening is because after Game 7 of the [NBA] Western Conference Finals, I likened Sen. Cruz to a blobfish,” Kimmel explained, according to “And he did not like that … so he challenged me to a game of one-on-one. And I accepted.”

The two players agreed that the loser would donate $5,000 to a charity picked by the winner, but both later agreed to donate $10,000 to both charities, the Texas Tribune reported.

Cruz selected Generation One Texas, an anti-poverty organzation, while Kimmel chose the Texas Children’s Hospital, the Tribune reported.

No, no, Ted. You’re supposed to insult Kimmel’s appearance twice as hard. Haven’t you learned anything?

I bet the money that Ted Cruz pledged to charity actually goes to charity, and not to a portrait of Ted Cruz in his offices or some dishonest stunt like that.

I bet it doesn’t take months for the charities to get their money, either.

What a mensch. How I wish this guy were our president.


  1. He is a man of integrity, something we are lacking in our leaders now. I wish he had continued to stand up to Trump when he does questionable things or is not a conservative, but he is an honorable man.

  2. I gather that Cruz, unlike McCain or Graham, honestly respects the office more than the man to simply be a non-stop critic. The time to push back against Trump’s character was in the primaries, the voters disagreed with him. I like that he’s been working behind the scenes to push a more conservative agenda with Trump and offer guidance when needed while continuing to speak out against bad legislation—which as a Senator should be his focus.

  3. When has Cruz criticized Trump as President?
