Pop singer Beyonce lends star power to Texas Democrat O'Rourke

Pop singer Beyonce lends star power to Texas Democrat O'Rourke

"Nobody should be yelling at this man in a public place", Triumph said, mocking calls for civility after Cruz was shouted out of a Washington, D.C. restaurant.

O'Rourke mostly laughed off the encounter. Ted Cruz's seat in the Texas Senate.

Cruz tied himself to Trump in the final days of the campaign, inviting the president for a major rally in Texas.

Before Triumph interviewed Cruz, he spoke to his opponent, O'Rourke.

Colbert noted that Triumph had been unsuccessful in confronting Senator Ted Cruz during the 2016 Republican presidential primary, but Triumph's luck was a bit better this time around.

Throughout the campaign, Cruz has assured voters that Texas is and will remain a conservative stronghold, frequently dismissing O'Rourke's media attention as hype.

It was a bitter fight, in which Mr Trump branded Mr Cruz "Lyin' Ted" and insulted his wife.

'I love the way you are anybody but Ted Cruz, ' Triumph, as played by Colbert's former colleague Robert Smigel, told O'Rourke during their interview. Triumph asks that same Cruz supporter. "Because he's a disgusting fish monster!" "I'm not 'overwhelming scientific evidence of global warming'". Preaching optimism and bipartisanship, he also refused to soften a liberal agenda that included calling for impeaching President Donald Trump, decriminalizing marijuana, implementing universal health care and gun control and relaxing federal immigration policies.

"Ted, I have a pre-existing condition that makes me vomit out of my eyes whenever I see you", Triumph shouts from the back of the room during the Cruz rally. Cruz, however, tried to have a moment with Triumph.

"Ted, is it true that you will defend the constitution at all costs?"

Cruz did show the humility to pay tribute to O'Rourke for his campaign - as the boos rang out among his supporters - and what he had done to mobilise and energise young voters. "Just like Trump did to you".
