It’s always amusing when celebrities try to involve themselves in politics (see WATCH: Why Celebrity Hillary Endorsements Will Backfire Huge… and Mike Rowe to Liberal Hollywood: ‘Voting is a Right, Not a Duty…’). Few are more smug and obnoxious about it than Mark Ruffalo.
Check out the actor’s most recent “zinger”…

“Princes of chaos?”
Dollars to donuts Ruffalo can’t name a single fact about Ted Cruz. I’m sure he can spit out a few talking points he was sent from the DNC, but as for things Cruz actually said? Naaah… That would involve him watching the series of epic takedowns Cruz has performed in the Senate. Like my personal favorite Ted Cruz Delivers Best Performance Yet at Climate Change Hearing.
Like most bullies on the playground, Mark probably wasn’t expecting Cruz to respond. Well, he did…

Wait for it…
Seriously though, the point Cruz made about Hollywood celebrities needs to be focused on. The more in a panic celebrities get about how terrible Hillary Clinton is at this whole election thing, the more forced and predictable Hollywood’s “voter outreach” sounds.
Also, Cruz took the “there’s no such thing as bad publicity” to the bank. While maybe slightly slighting Ruffalo with the Now You See Me was great. If only more Republicans would punch back when these actors strike out.
And yes, when other Republicans strike back, we’ll cover that too. It’s not just a “ra-ra” Ted Cruz thing. He’s just the only one responding to these morons.
So really, keep it up!
