Samantha Bee examined Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) faith on Monday’s episode of Full Frontal, saying that it was significant that it was allies or his relatives claiming to receive divine messages calling for him to be president.
“Guys, the message is clear: even God cannot stand to have a direct conversation with Ted Cruz,” Bee argued.
Unfortunately for Republicans, she noted, the Tea Party lawmaker is the party’s only hope at the moment of avoiding having to nominate Donald Trump as its presidential candidate. Cruz is so disliked not even party stalwart Bob Dole could say that he liked him.
“Bob Dole singled Ted out for hatred — and Bob Dole has fought actual Nazis,” she said.
Bee ridiculed the senator — who she described as “the son of a former Cuban revolutionary and a soiled back issue of National Review” — with footage from his days as an actor in college, including video of him saying he hoped to “be in a teen t*t film” like one of his classmates, which nearly made her double over in revulsion.
“There’s something about hearing him say the word t*t that makes me wish I didn’t have them,” Bee fretted.

‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
