·1 min read

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-runningpranks

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