Triumph even talked to O'Rourke himself, joking "does it concern you that half your fans think they can vote via Instagram?"
Finally, Triumph got to harass Cruz up close, and Cruz tried to own the dog. "Because we think [O'Rourke is] pretty important".
Tonight we find out if media hype and celebrity endorsements can win the Democrats a seat in the U.S. Senate in Texas.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert sent the only political correspondent fearless enough to ask the tough questions down to Texas to cover the toss-up Senate race between incumbent GOP sweaty narc Ted Cruz against Democratic challenger and The Clash fan Beto O'Rourke.
He also references the "Cruz is the Zodiac Killer" joke by saying that Cruz's stance on repealing Obamacare would kill way more people than the Zodiac ever did.
Pochettino: Spurs will realise their dream
Speaking at his press conference, van Bommel said ahead of the tie, "We did not do well at home, we have to be honest about that". Mauricio Pochettino has promised to stay at Tottenham until he restores the club to the dominant force they were in the 1960s.
Triumph finally confronted Cruz after one of his rallies. Conservatism is a hell of a drug.
"I just want to say to Triumph, my advice is walk away", Cruz quipped.
The last time we saw Triumph the Insult Comic Dog in action, in a 2016 Election special from back when we thought that comedy mattered, he was lamenting the fact that he couldn't get an interview with Ted Cruz.
"Just remember: It wasn't the Republicans, it was the Democrats that took you into the vet to get fixed and there is freedom on the other side", Cruz cracked as his supporters laughed. "I support spaying and neutering, just like Trump did to you", Triumph quickly shot back, adding his trademark catchphrase, "I kid!"
The contest is largely seen is a major indicator of Texans' views on President Trump and is seen as a predictor of how the state may vote in the 2020 presidential election.
