Stephen Colbert Explains Why People Shouldn't Feel Sad For Ted Cruz's Dog
Stephen Colbert on Monday confronted Senator Ted Cruz about his trip to Cancun and hit the Republican from Texas with one gag after the other about the ill-advised trip.
Last week, Cruz received a backlash after leaving for Cancun while his home state battled power outages and unsafe drinking water amid a massive blizzard.
"When things get tough, Ted Cruz will go missing," said Colbert, who also explained why Cruz's decision to leave family dog Snowflake at home (in the care of a dog sitter) was actually a boon to the Puppy.
"Before you are sad about the dog, remember that it must be two days away from Ted Cruz," joked the presenter of the "Late Show".
