WATCH: SNL Weekend Update Hosts Savagely Roast Ted Cruz’s Terrible Haircut
Ted Cruz had a busy week. The Texas senator spent the large part of Donald Trump’s impeachment trial ignoring the evidence presented by the house managers. Cruz was also seen conferring with Trump’s defense lawyers on multiple occasions.
But Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update hosts weren’t all that concerned about Cruz’s actions. They were more focused on the new hairdo the Texas senator debuted this week. Host Colin Jost spent a couple minutes mocking Cruz’s new look.
The co-host began, “And look, I know there are probably bigger things happening, but can we talk about Ted Cruz’s hair for like an hour. What happened here? It looks like he’s selling fireworks out of the back of an El Camino. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this guy handcuffed crying on a curb on Cops. I mean, what are you doing man? You’re a senator, not the manager of a paintball range. At least the manager of a paintball range has some leadership skills.”
