Texas Sen. Ted Cruz engaged in an interesting conversation with Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday night while appearing on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
After discussing Kimmel’s “salt and pepper look,” Cruz got stuck in a sticky situation when asked whether he likes President Obama or Donald Trump better. The Republican presidential candidate went red in the face and seemed to fumble for an answer before exclaiming he dislikes “Obama’s policies more” and added “Donald is a unique individual.”
“If I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push,” he added, as the audience cheered and laughed.
Kimmel then threw a series of questions at Cruz and when asked about his favorite cereal, he gave a witty reply asking “serial killer” or “cereal.” He then confessed he likes “newsflix.”
Amid conversation about Stars Wars and concerts, the White House hopeful recalled a police officer smoking a joint at a Pink Floyd concert.
