Sen. Ted Cruz challenged Jimmy Kimmel to a charity basketball game after the comedian mocked him on his late night show. Here’s the 411…
It all began last month when Kimmel compared Cruz to a blobfish on national television.
Cruz then challenged Kimmel to a game of one-on-one.
In his blather about what has been dubbed the ‘Blobfish Basketball Classic’, Kimmel failed to mention that Cruz was far from annoyed, but, rather amused at the comedian’s suggestion. He even shot back with his own idea of what Kimmel could wear.

Kimmel also didn’t mention that Cruz played basketball in high school.
The Republican politician, 47, and the late night host, 50, brought out their best moves and trashiest talk for the basketball game Saturday at Texas Southern University.
The charity game was launched after comedian Kimmel poked fun at Cruz comparing him to a blobfish and the senator responded on Twitter with a one-on-one challenge on the court.

The loser of the game dubbed the Blobfish Basketball Classic donated $5,000 to the winner’s choice charity, which for Cruz was Generation One, which works to end poverty in Houston.
Funds raised in the game were also donated to Kimmel’s choice charity Texas Children’s Hospital.
Prior to the game the late night host conceded that he doesn’t ‘have any moves’ and was mostly banking on his defense skills.
‘I think this could bring an end to the sport of basketball as we know it. I’m not a basketball player and yet I know deep in my heart I know that I must be able to beat Ted Cruz,’ Kimmel said to ABC.
‘If I lose I’m not going home. I’m just going to live on the [Houston] streets,‘ he added.

There it is… Kimmel made a promise just like all the other celebrities did when they said they’d move out of the United States if Donald Trump won the Election in 2016. None of them ever left.
Kimmel was crushed by Cruz in a game that ran long and ended with a score of 11-9.
Did Kimmel remain a vagrant in Houston?
He’s back home and the game will be aired on his show on Monday, June 18.

Not bad for a 47-year old Senator who played basketball in high school.
The real winners are the charities, but let’s not forget the humiliation and stench of defeat that will hang around Kimmel for the next while.
I think if you you get beat by Ted Cruz in basketball you should have to wear a shirt that says “I got beat by Ted Cruz in basketball” for the rest of your life, and then be buried in a tomb that says “I got beat by Ted Cruz in basketball”

Amen, brotha, amen!
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
