Last Night on Late Night

Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers mock Ted Cruz for porn tweet fiasco

Posted on

By now you’ve probably heard about how Ted Cruz’s official Twitter account was caught “liking” a tweet containing a hardcore porn video, but Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t believe that it was actually the Senator from Texas who did it. His reasoning? “Ted Cruz masturbates to pictures of poor people without health care,” the late-night personality joked on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Both Kimmel and Late Night‘s Seth Meyers took aim at Cruz for the fiasco that ensued from this slip-up. Cruz’s camp said the incident happened because a staffer had access to the account and liked the tweet accidentally, but Kimmel can’t help but wonder, “If he only did something this perverted during the campaign, he’d be president right now.”

Amid his deep-dive lampooning, Kimmel also threw together a fake ad response to the situation that further skewered Cruz. The video asked, “Does this look like a man that watches porn on his phone?” before admitting, “You know what, let’s go ahead and use another picture” because the others were too creepy.

Meyers incorporated jabs about Cruz into his monologue on Late Night. “‘Ew, gross,’ said the porn stars after hearing that Ted Cruz watched them,” he joked. Meyers then showed a picture of Cruz together with President Trump and noted the porn tweet was “the second most embarrassing thing Cruz has been caught liking.”
