Ted Cruz Makes Hilarious Joke At His Own Expense, Libs Feel “Wrong” Laughing At It

Martin Niemoller, author of the iconic First They Came… poem, once said that, “If you can laugh at yourself, you are going to be fine. If you allow others to laugh with you, you will be great.”

In fact, dare I say, if you’re going to be a politician and can laugh at yourself, you’re going to be fine. Because, let’s face it, folks laughing at you is probably the best-case scenario.

Occasionally, Texas Ted will show up in my Twitter feed in a way that makes me want to stop and thank the Lord that I was born for such a time as this.

This is one of those moments.

When some droopy goth on Twitter posted this tweet, which I, as a casual Cruz supporter, admit is pretty funny in itself, it seemed like that was the end of the story. Funny joke about Ted Cruz, laugh, scroll onto the next video of cute puppies.

Until the man himself crashed the party.

Excuse my hyperbole, but that single sentence is the greatest thing the internet has ever produced. Bar none. 10/10.

What’s just as funny is how squeamish Ted made a gaggle of assorted leftists when his epic comeback actually made them laugh:

And my personal favorite:

Maybe the People Of Twitter™ have learned from this little stunt that it won’t kill you to be civil with your political and ideological opponents. They’re human, too. 100% human.
