Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beat late night television host Jimmy Kimmel 11-9 in a charity one-on-one basketball game that came down to the wire.
“Can you be embarrassed by a picture of someone else’s dad? Because I am,” Kimmel said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Cruz was spotted a Houston Rockets basketball game last month wearing a t-shirt over a polo shirt. “When Ted arrived at the Toyota Center, some of the fans mistakenly thought it was Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night. I mean, look at him. He looks, and I’m not joking here, he looks like a blobfish.”
Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.
All right, Big Guy…you talk a good game. You besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets,” Cruz said on Twitter. “So let’s settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or ‘ring-ball,’ if you prefer). The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”
The two played at Texas Southern University.
“The crowd is fired up,” Cruz tweeted before the game began, attaching a video of the arena.

The game was initially supposed to be played to 15, but the pair shortened it to 11 because it was taking so long.

“You’re a good sport,” a bitter Kimmel said after a crushing defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
BLM Supporter Charged With Attempted Murder After Driving into Crowd of Trump Supporters in Parking Lot
A woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after driving through a crowd of Donald Trump supporters demonstrating in a Yorba Linda, California parking lot.
The Trump supporters had arrived in the conservative-leaning California city to counter a Breonna Taylor Black Lives Matter event. Conservatives and BLM protestors had opposed one another on opposite sides of a street, with the former hailing insults and some projectiles at the former.
The victims of the attack weren’t blocking a public roadway, a dangerous tactic that ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter militants have frequently used. They were standing in a parking lot.

The woman who was driving the white Nissan used in the attack was arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies shortly after the incident. Photography reveals she was wearing riot gear being used by nearby Black Lives Matter protestors who were active in the nominally conservative Orange County city.
The driver has been identified as Tatiana Turner of Long Beach. She’s been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.
It’s somewhat of a surprise that a leftist terrorist is being held accountable by the criminal justice system in California. It remains to be seen if Democrat-aligned prosecutors will attempt to drop the charges in the case, enabling Turner to get away with the vicious assault.
