Jimmy Kimmel Saddles Sen. Ted Cruz With Chilling Halloween Nicknames

The late night host hates Halloween and he's no fan of Cruz, either.

Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday managed to combine his two biggest comedic targets in a single joke: Halloween and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

“I hate Halloween,” Kimmel admitted, which might explain why he takes so much pleasure in one of the holiday’s longest-running pranks.

Kimmel’s also not a fan of Cruz, and that came across again as he discussed a new survey of states with the most Halloween decorations. Texas came in fourth, but Kimmel said it was number one when it came to the country’s scariest Halloween decorations: Ted Cruz lawn signs.

Or as Kimmel called him: the “real-life Grandpa Munster” and “the Cancun Chupacabra.”
