Rough stuff! Jimmy Kimmel was less than impressed with Texas Senator Ted Cruz‘s recent announcement on Twitter that he’s running for President, comparing the politico to one newly disgraced star.
“Ted Cruz broke the news that he will run [for President] on Twitter today — that’s the cool way to do it, I guess,” Kimmel, 47, began on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, March 23. “Announcing your candidacy before everyone else does is kinda like being the first celebrity to show up on the Oscars red carpet.”
“It’s not a great thing,” Kimmel added. “Ted Cruz is essentially the Giuliana Rancic of candidates for President.”
Cruz chose not to comment on Kimmel’s jibe, instead devoting his time to tweet out early campaign messages. “Imagine a federal government that stands for the First Amendment rights of every American!” he marveled. “Imagine a federal government that protects the right to keep and bear arms for all law-abiding Americans.”
As Kimmel took shots at Cruz, over on Late Night, Seth Meyers turned his attention to Justin Bieber and his controversy-courting pal Lil Twist.
“You guys, Justin Bieber’s sidekick Lil Twist is facing 25 years in jail for allegedly assaulting a former Disney channel star last year, which is still better than spending the next 25 years as Justin Bieber’s sidekick,” Meyers, 41, joked of Twist, 22, who allegedly assaulted the brother of That’s So Raven‘s Kyle Massey this past November.
“I hope I’m not being too optimistic, but I think someone named Lil’ Twist is gonna do just fine in prison,” Meyers continued. “In prison, that’s not even a name, I think it’s an instruction.”
Jimmy Fallon turned his attention toward the most important meal of the day on The Tonight Show, introducing one toxic breakfast cereal.
“They just came out with a list of the most popular cereals in America and Cheerios was number one with almost $1 billion in sales,” Fallon began. “The least popular cereal yet again was Ebolios. No one’s buying it. You can’t buy it!”
