Normally we try to avoid the “Watch This Comedian EVISCERATE Hated Monster In JUST ONE TWEET” construction, as it’s a pretty flimsy premise to build a post around, but we’ll make an exception in the case of this one. Last night, Samantha Bee, who it might still not be too late to the give the Daily Show hosting gig too, summed up the sad, denouement of Ted Cruz’s failed campaign succinctly:
Shouldn’t #TedCruz have been forced to carry his unviable campaign to term?

Cruz, who, again, will never be president, announced he was suspending his campaign last night after another loss to Donald Trump in Indiana. It was a weird day for him all around, in what was a truly weird campaign. He begun it by jokingly admitting that his father had in fact helped assassinated JFK, as Trump alluded to, and wound things up by accidentally punching his wife in the grill.
Seriously, drop everything you’re doing and watch this Vine of Ted Cruz accidentally punching his wife in the face https://t.co/OSlQrMDgaT

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy.
Samantha Bee’s show Full Frontal is on TBS. You should be watching it.
