GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz will make his first appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night. Hopefully, Kimmel finally will get to the bottom of Cruz’s remark late last week, “Donald Trump may be a rat, but I have no desire to copulate with him” – and any other head-scratchers that might come out of Cruz’s mouth on Tuesday night. That’s when CNN holds its seventh town hall with candidates, this one with Cruz, Trump and John Kasich in Wisconsin a week before voters head to the polls in the state’s critical primary.
Cruz and Kimmel already have a lot to talk about — rodent copulation aside – during the traditional National Enquirer phase of the presidential election cycle. And there’s the “beans” that Trump’s campaign finally “spilled” about Cruz’s wife (short version: Team Trump claims she’s actually a Bush operative, who worked for people who worked on many things Cruz claims to oppose, including NAFTA). Maybe they’ll talk about how his campaign snared more delegates in Louisiana though Trump won that state’s GOP primary.
Last week, Kimmel “man-splained” campaign speechifying to Dem front-runner Hillary Clinton – it was wonderfully awkward – and hosted Bernie Sanders before his sweep of Alaska, Washington and Hawaii primaries.
