Ted Cruz sparks hilarious backlash after proposing absurd Jim Jordan/Ron Perlman wrestling match

Actor Ron Perlman of Hellboy and Sons of Anarchy fame has never been shy about his deep antipathy and distrust of the modern Republican Party. Over the weekend, he once again let loose with a series of brutal barbs, this time zeroed in on the execrable Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). After repeatedly mocking Gaetz and weathering the Congressman’s underwhelming milquetoast rebuttals, Perlman went after Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

The actor wrote that Matt Gaetz is “lucky” that Jordan exists because without him Gaetz would qualify as the “ugliest politician walking.” Perlman’s attack was ruthless, but perhaps no less than a man as odious as Jordan deserves.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), failed Republican presidential hopeful and generally unlikeable guy, quote-tweeted Perlman’s Jordan attack and wrote: “You talk good game when you’ve got Hollywood makeup and stuntman.” He then said he’d bet a $10,000 donation to a “nonpolitical charity” that Perlman wouldn’t be able to “last 5 mins” in a wrestling ring with Jordan.

Add your name to tell states and police to reject Trump’s calls to use violence against peaceful protestors!

The choice of wrestling stems from the fact that Jordan used to be an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University. What Cruz failed to mention in his little tweet is that Jordan’s days at OSU are deeply stained with controversy, as numerous student-athletes have alleged that Jordan knew that the wrestling team’s doctor was molesting them and did nothing to stop it. In other words, he’s exactly the kind of man you would expect to find a home in the party of Donald Trump.

Perlman was quick yo fire back and told “teddy boy” that he’d rather just donate $50,000 to Black Lives Matter and let Cruz “keep all the tax payer money you were thinking of spending.”

Cruz, unable to admit he’d been outflanked and outclassed, said that he knows Perlman is “rich” but also “soft.” He pushed the Jordan angle, alleging that Perlman is “scared” to wrestle the former coach. He then tossed out an incredibly weak insult about him needing a “manicure.” As is always the case with Cruz, the tweet lacked anything that could even be generously described as wit.

Perlman responded by belittling Cruz for being the “kind of a muthf*cka” who “offers to have another guy, probably asleep at the time, kick another guy’s ass.” Given Cruz’s constant posturing as a Texan tough guy with his love of cigars and guns, Perlman’s jab was spot on.

He followed up with another tweet calling Jordan “just a little b*tch” and offered to take on “teddy” to teach him a lesson about talking “sh*t” about New York. “Lets go mofo!” he concluded.

Cruz, perhaps finally realizing that the back-and-forth was not going his way, has not responded but the Twitter feud between the two men unleashed a tidal wave of tweets, most of them mocking the Texan senator.
