Donald Trump is not the person in the United States that Ted Cruz hates most, the Texas senator remarked during his debut on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Wednesday night. But apparently, that still does not afford him much goodwill when it comes to his primary presidential rival.
“Who do you like better — Obama or Trump?” Kimmel asked Cruz.
The senator chuckled, paused, and then responded, “I dislike Obama’s policies more. But Donald, Donald is a unique individual.”
“I will say, I was watching the early part of the show, and if I were in my car and getting ready to reverse and saw Donald in the backup camera, I’m not confident which pedal I’d push,” Cruz joked.
Kimmel then fired away with a few questions.
“How many of the seven ‘Star Wars’ movies have you seen?” the late-night host asked. “All of them,” Cruz replied.
“Favorite cereal?” Kimmel asked. Cruz responded in jest: “serial killer or cereal?” presumably an allusion to the meme slash mock conspiracy theory that the presidential candidate is the infamous Zodiac killer. “Uh, actually, Mueslix, I like.”
