- A geographically challenged Republican attempts to name one country on a world map.
Last month, Cruz tweeted a Jimmy Kimmel Live! segment where random folks were asked to identify any country on a map — and, naturally, couldn't. Cruz remarked that the geographically challenged randos were followers of Sanders, the Democratic presidential frontrunner.
On Wednesday's show, Kimmel explained that the segment wasn't intended as political commentary, nor were the people they stopped on the street Sanders supporters.
To make his point, he reconstructed the bit, but this time asked people who identified as Republicans or Trump supporters to name a country on the map. As the clip below illustrates, they didn't fare too well.
Wednesday's dig is just the latest salvo in an ongoing sparring match between Kimmel and the arch-conservative senator. The rivalry escalated into a one-on-one basketball showdown in 2018 that Cruz somehow won. However, it's unlikely that victor was enough for the senator to fully recover from his pillorying by Triumph the Insult Comic Dog.
