Ted Cruz recently compared himself to Galileo, which gave President Obama the perfect ammunition he needed to tear him apart at Saturday night’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.
You don’t get to be a science-denying, climate change hoax believing, the world is 6000 years old spouting nutbag while comparing yourself to one of the most progressive scientists of all time.
This is certainly not the first time Cruz has been put in his place for being a closed-minded ignoramus, but it most definitely is the funniest. President Obama even tossed in a bit of self-deprecation as he took Cruz to the mat:
When a guy who has his face on a ‘hope’ poster calls you self-centered, you know you’ve got a problem.
Ted Cruz has far too many problems to count, but pointing this particular issue out and getting an entire room to laugh about was nothing short of brilliant.
Don’t worry, Ted. They’re not laughing with you; they’re laughing at you.
