Ted Cruz—a man whose* idea of comedy is literally doing terrible Simpsons impressions—released an allegedly humorous new anti-Trump ad on Thursday starring, of course, Hillary Clinton.
In the ad, strategists present Clinton with “the plan” to get Trump nominated, effectively clinching a Democratic victory in November. Lacking a convincing Hillary look- or sound-alike, the video’s humor mostly comes from the sight of a blonde woman in old lady makeup scowling.
Naturally, conservatives sites are already hailing the gut-bustin’ goof ‘em up as hilarious.
“[But] how do we stop Ted Cruz?” demands a furious Huma Abedin stand-in near the end of the video.
“I don’t think we can,” answers a shaken Clinton operative, presumably knowing that, as Isaac Newton observed 300 years ago, an object at rest tends to stay at rest.
