If you come at a comedian, you best not miss.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) took a cheap shot at Patton Oswalt early Thursday after Oswalt nixed multiple performances at venues that refuse to require proof of vaccination or a negative test result from audience members.
“Both of his fans were disappointed,” Cruz snarked on Twitter.
Oswalt wasn’t having it.
The stand-up hit back at the Texas Republican with a series of one-liners, zinging Cruz for his ill-fated vacation to Cancun as his state was hit by a devastating winter storm, that hardcore porn incident and his amplification of 2020 election conspiracy theories that led to the U.S. Capitol riot.
“Well, that was fun,” Oswalt concluded the thread with a final slam of Cruz as “a friendless, cowardly embarrassment.”
