Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

As the late-night host explains early-on in today’s clip, Senator Ted Cruz actually purchased commercial air time during Late Night With Stephen Colbert to diss on his upcoming midterm opponent Beto O’ Rourke.

Hmm. We don’t think Cruz is going to find many converts in the Colbert crowd, who react to Beto the way adolescent girls reacted to Mick Jagger in 1966…minus the fainting.

The Cruz ad itself accidentally shows O’ Rourke doing some desirable things, like speaking in plain (if blue) language to voters, and skateboarding in some fine casual business attire. Eat your heart out, Tony Hawk.

What’s next, Ted? Are you going to show him wooing the ladies? Hopefully not the ladies on your Twitter feed.

See the GOP’s Texas tomfoolery.

Sooner or later, the Lincoln Project had to train its scope on Jared Kushner, Trump's empowered son-in-law who has botched every important assignment in the White House. With signature remorseless style, this ad explains how has failed all of them: "This pampered princeling has never met a problem that he couldn't f*ck up."

Sadly for 150,000 dead Americans and counting, one of those Kushner assignments was a strategy to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Typically, he has declared victory and accomplished nothing.

We warmly congratulate Jared on his new title: "Secretary of Failure."
