Ron Perlman Gives GOP's Ted Cruz And Matt Gaetz Hell, Boy

Actor Ron Perlman has taken his clap-back game to a legendary level while roasting conservative lawmakers on Twitter over the weekend.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), MP Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) And even President Donald Trump have drawn the anger of the former "Hellboy" star.
The actor first competed against Gaetz after the representative tore up US football for allowing the players to kneel in protest during the national anthem. "You shouldn't be playing under our flag as our national team if you are not standing when it is raised," he wrote.
Perlman tagged Trump, who threatened to boycott games with his knees, and flicked: "The US soccer team called and you guessed it.
Matt Gaetz

@ Mattgaetz
I'd rather the United States not have a soccer team than a soccer team that doesn't represent the national anthem.

You shouldn't be playing under our flag as our national team if you are not standing when it is raised.

It escalated. Gaetz called Perlman a "warrior of racial justice" who "had no problem in Hollywood with portraying the white supremacist leader of a motorcycle gang". Gaetz referred to Perlman's role in the FX series "Sons of Anarchy". Perlman had to remind him that it was fiction.
"Yes, so true! So worthwhile to play assholes on TV. Tell me, sir, what is it like to be one? "

Gaetz replied that he was proud that Hollywood thought he was an idiot, and Perlman cheerfully checked him over.

@ Mattgaetz
Honest? The fact that Hollywood thinks I'm an asshole is a badge of honor :)

You would not tweet about me if my message was not true and effective. Threatens your vigilance.

How will you be triggered if @realDonaldTrump is re-elected? More or less than if lost?

Perlman chased Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and asked Cruz to arrange a wrestling match between Jordan and Perlman. Cruz offered to donate $ 10,000 to charity so Perlman couldn't hold out for five minutes with Jordan, a former college wrestler and trainer.

Listen to Hellboy. You're talking good game if you have Hollywood makeup & stuntmen. But I bet $ 10,000 - to the apolitical charity of your choice - that you can't get 5 minutes in the wrestling ring without @Jim_Jordan without getting stuck. Are you ready for it Or does your publicist say too risky?

Perlman insulted Cruz and jokingly asked for his autograph. The actor suggested taking Jordan out of the game because of his “problematic” relationship with wrestling. The congressman was accused of ignoring wrestlers' claims of sexual abuse while training in the state of Ohio.
So Perlman suggested a match against Cruz. "I'm going to give Black Lives Matter 50,000 and you can keep all the tax money you wanted to spend," wrote the alum "Hand of God."

Cruz fought back, attacked Perlman's privilege, and called him Chicken for avoiding the Jordan Challenge.
"Can't stand the heat? Need a manicure?" Cruz wrote.

@tedcruz
I understand you are rich. But apparently soft. You sure seem to be afraid to fight Jordan (whom you keep insulting).

Can't stand the heat Do you need a manicure?

If the sports calendar remains relatively empty, fans may ask for a game between Perlman and Cruz. But if Cruz and Jimmy Kimmel are playing basketball, it may be best to keep busy with Twitter.
