Watch Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Roast Ted Cruz to His Face

The fuzzy, felt-skinned creation of veteran comedy writer Robert Smigel showed up on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday night to unveil a video documenting the Texas senate race. After some playful back-and-forth ribbing, Triumph turned his attention to Beto's opponent.

In a rare move, Taylor Swift endorsed two Democratic candidates running in Tennessee last month, turning her Instagram into a get-out-and-vote page for her 112 million followers. Without giving them all away, here are the seven sickest burns Triumph lands on Ted Cruz. Triumph wraps up the interview with, "I'm not saying Ted Cruz supports racist policies, but he was just given the 9AM slot on The Today Show!".

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert sent the only political correspondent fearless enough to ask the tough questions down to Texas to cover the toss-up Senate race between incumbent GOP sweaty narc Ted Cruz against Democratic challenger and The Clash fan Beto O'Rourke. Triumph asks that same Cruz supporter.

"I'm here at the Ted Cruz rally", Triumph announces, "or a Duck Dynasty cosplay convention. Except for when Donald Trump calls it ugly on Twitter", Triumph joked right to his face, evoking the time from the 2016 primaries when Trump insulted Cruz's wife on Twitter.

First, Triumph talked to early-voting Beto fans, a "terrifying swarm of degenerate leftists with one thing in common: they all share the same Netflix account". "Is that in the GOP health-care plan?"

Cruz then tried to make a joke about the Democrats taking Triumph to get fixed.

But Triumph later turned it into a chant of "Lyin" Ted'.

"Ted, is it true you will defend the constitution at all costs?" Triumph asks when he finally has a brief audience with Cruz.

"Because I wasn't expecting it", Pamela said with tears in her eyes.
