"What's Ted Cruz have that you don't have, besides the ability to regenerate his tail?"
Despite the jokes at his expense, Cruz did play along with the bit, even telling a police officer who appeared to be holding Triumph back that everything was okay.
"Does it concern you that half your base thinks they can vote for you through Instagram?" he asked. Triumph shouts third degree burns at the senator like: "You can't ignore me, Ted!"

After interviewing the candidates, Triumph (pictured on The Late Show) joined in with Cruz supporters to chant that he is a "lion of the Senate". "The Trump administration, and by extension the (Texas Gov. Greg) Abbott administration, have done quite enough to intimidate voters without staging military rehearsals on Election Day".
But while Triumph seemed to take it easy on O'Rourke, incumbent Cruz didn't have such luck. Ted Cruz and Democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke could indicate the political future of "ruby red" Texas; revealing whether the Lone Star State could "turn blue" due to shifting demographics and a wave of younger voters.
First, Triumph talked to early-voting Beto fans, a "terrifying swarm of degenerate leftists with one thing in common: they all share the same Netflix account". "Is that covered under the GOP healthcare plan?"

But Triumph later turned it into a chant of "Lyin" Ted'.
Finally, Cruz tries to get in a zinger about how it was the Democrats who neutered Triumph, and the Insult Comic Dog is ready for it. "Just remember", Cruz cautioned Triumph.
