Robert Smigel, as Triumph, has fun roasting the lefties who turn out for O'Rourke, but he saves his best material for dragging Cruz within an inch of his life. 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.
In a rare move, Taylor Swift endorsed two Democratic candidates running in Tennessee last month, turning her Instagram into a get-out-and-vote page for her 112 million followers. "We think he's pretty important and we're honored that he was here".
Before Triumph interviewed Cruz, he spoke to his opponent, Beto O'Rourke (pictured). You can see Beto trying (and failing) not to laugh. Without giving them all away, here are the seven sickest burns Triumph lands on Ted Cruz. "See, because he's a ugly fish monster". He describes Cruz's desire to repeal Obamacare as something that could potentially kill "way more people than the Zodiac", emphasizing the "way more" again and again so many times that the Cruz supporters chuckling at his joke (but still supporting Cruz) have to actually think about it.
Target reveals Black Friday deals and skip-the-line option
One of the first real Black Friday ads is finally here, and it's Kohl's 2018 catalog that's kicking off the festivities this year. The line-skipping function builds on Target's ongoing effort to make shopping more efficient for guests.
But Triumph seemed ready for the remark and hit Cruz with one parting shot. Conservatism is a hell of a drug.
Said Triumph to Late Show viewers: "Come on, this is the man".
Stephen Colbert was just the latest comedian to take on the Texas race, sending Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog, to speak with both candidates in the heated race. Triumph responded by saying "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you".
