Tonight we find out if media hype and celebrity endorsements can win the Democrats a seat in the U.S. Senate in Texas.
The best moment of all arguably comes near the end with a final exchange between Cruz and Triumph. He asks the candidate if he's concerned that his young voters think they can vote for him through Instagram, and tries to get O'Rourke to endorse voting twice thanks to the broken voting machines. Triumph wraps up the interview with, "I'm not saying Ted Cruz supports racist policies, but he was just given the 9AM slot on The Today Show!".
Before Triumph interviewed Cruz, he spoke to his opponent, Beto O'Rourke (pictured). Without giving them all away, here are the seven sickest burns Triumph lands on Ted Cruz.
Then Triumph made his way over to the Ted Cruz rally, or a "Duck Dynasty cosplay convention".
"What do you have that Ted Cruz doesn't have?" "Just remember", Cruz cautioned Triumph.
After interviewing the candidates, Triumph joined in with Cruz supporters to chant that he is a "lion of the Senate". "Because he's a ugly fish monster!"
"Ted, I have a pre-existing condition that makes me vomit out of my eyes whenever I see you", Triumph shouts from the back of the room during the Cruz rally. "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?" I'm not overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming!" and "Ted, quick question!
"Ted, is it true that you will defend the constitution at all costs?"
Cruz, who cast an early vote in his native Houston last month, says he's confident he'll prevail and was boosted by President Donald Trump's recent visit to Houston.
Triumph the Insult Comic Dog hit the campaign trail in Texas, where the puppet traded barbs with both Republican Sen.
Shot back Triumph, "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you".
