On his show Wednesday night, The Daily Show host Jon Stewart savagely mocked “wacko-bird” Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

Noting Cruz was now considered the most hated legislator in the Senate, Stewart joked “that’s like being the lowest rated show on NBC.”

“He’s American as apple pie that the government has laced with fluoride to dull you into handing over your guns,” Stewart explained. “The guy is just your run-of-the-mill strict constitutionalists fringe-right take-our-country-back-from-the-socialist-Kenyan tea partier-type guy.”

Cruz has even considered running for president in 2016. However, the Republican senator was born in Canada.

“Our beloved Texas freedom fighter is nothing but a dirty syrup-guzzler,” Stewart said. “What a terrible twist, aye?”

Cruz has responded to questions about his birthplace by saying he would let others look at the issue, prompting Stewart to call on Donald “Fuckface von Clownstick” Trump to send his birther team to Winnipeg.
