Ted Cruz Calls Out Jimmy Kimmel, Challenges Him to Basketball
Howard Stern may be "the king of all media." But Ted Cruz is the king of all social media. His Twitter game is always on point. And on Wednesday, he mixed it up with Jimmy Kimmel (see Jimmy Kimmel Cries and Blames the GOP for Florida School Shooting and LOL: Jimmy Kimmel Doesn’t Get Why People Don’t Like His Political Rants. Yes, Really…). Kimmel made fun of Cruz's appearance. Calling him ugly. Possibly even made fun of his mother.
Cruz had enough.

Ball is life, yo.

The Senator didn't wait for condition #3.

Bruh, he played the "Man Show" card. Kimmel has to accept now. If not for the American people, do it for The Fox!
This 1-on-1 has to happen. This is the ball game we deserve. I'd so watch the crap out of this. Twice. Three times.
It's the political/comedy equivalent of finally settling the Michael Jordan vs Lebron James debate. What do we need to do to make it happen?
Come on, Jimmy. Put your money where your gasbag is.
