When asked to quantify his hatred for Donald Trump, Ted Cruz showed that it can make him think deadly thoughts.
Cruz appeared on Wednesday’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and the host asked the Republican presidential candidate “get to know you” questions. He started by asking whether Cruz’s heated feud with Trump went beyond partisanship.
“Who do you like better, Obama or Trump?” Kimmel asked.
“I dislike Obama’s policies more, but Donald is a unique individual,” Cruz answered diplomatically.
That diplomacy melted away, though, when Cruz then referenced the late-night show’s earlier segment on April Fools’ Day tricks, then said, “If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push.”
