For some reason known only to him, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) seems to have a desperate need to engage in online trolling aimed at those he disagrees with. The problem, however, is that nearly every single time he goes on Twitter and fires off what he thinks is a brilliant riposte, the joke winds up being on him.

Such is the case yet again with Cruz trying to take a cheap shot at comedian Patton Oswalt, who announced earlier this week he would be canceling upcoming shows in Florida and Utah because the venues wouldn’t agree that the audience either show proof of a COVID vaccination or agree to a coronavirus test, NBC News reported:

“This difficult decision was made due to the rising numbers of Covid cases and also because I have an ego, but my ego is not big enough to think that people should die to hear my stupid comedy,” Oswalt said in the video about the cancellations. “So hopefully, hopefully, in the future we can rebook those when sanity holds sway again. But this sucks, I was really looking forward to Florida, to Salt Lake City.”

Game, set, and match, Patton Oswalt.
