Ted Cruz Actually Responds to Getting Blasted by True Blood

Sometimes TV shows can get weirdly political, especially when they attempt to get in jabs at real-world politicians (see: Glee, The Newsroom). But HBO’s True Blood went after Senator Ted Cruz and “Republicunts” this week, and today Cruz actually responded.

For some weird reason, Cruz was featured in a fictional headline on the show about how he’s going to the Bush library. There’s a line about how everyone going there is an “asshole.” You get the idea.

So Cruz responded today on Facebook noting the strangeness of the shoutout, as well as taking a few shots at the content of the episode itself.

Of all the places I never thought to be mentioned, HBO’s True Blood vampire show would have to be near the top of the list. Sunday night, they aired a misogynist and profanity-ridden episode where Texas Republicans are murdered attending a “Ted Cruz fundraiser.”

Well, I’m sorry to have lost the vampire vote, but am astonished (and amused) that HBO is suggesting that hard-core leftists are blood-sucking fiends….

And if you need a reminder of how this kinda-forced moment played out, here it is again, via HBO (as edited by Breitbart) — (NSFW: Language):
