Recently, Senator Ted Cruz challenged late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel to a basketball match. Jimmy Kimmel has finally responded to the challenge.
On Thursday, Jimmy Kimmel announced he would accept the senator’s one-on-one challenge. After accepting the challenge, the talk show host sneaked in a few disses.
The senator and Kimmel have been going back and forth with insults after Kimmel poked fun at Cruz. Cruz attended a Houston Rockets’ game, and his presence was noticed across the country. Kimmel took notice too. Shortly after Kimmel mocked Cruz, Cruz responded and challenged the talk show host to a game of basketball for charity.
However, Kimmel did give Cruz a few warnings. He addressed the Senator, asking him if he really wanted to play a game of basketball against him? He pointed out that he lost an election, so would it be a smart idea to play against him? He proceeded to ask if losing the election was enough.
Cruz issued the challenge via Twitter. He taunted Kimmel, saying that he talked a good game, but they should settle things on the court. He said the loser would give $5 to charity, and the winner gets to choose what charity the money goes to. However, it has to be a non-political charity.
As of now, a date for the match has not been set, but a date is expected to be announced soon.
