Poor Beto O’Rourke.
He’s had a series of missteps, went on an apology tour of sorts to apologize for being white, and attendance at his campaign rallies has been nothing like the glory days of when he ran against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in 2018.
Last night, he appeared on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” and he was asked about some really important issues like his love of music and how he once had a trampoline on his roof when he lived in Brooklyn.
He was also asked about Cruz.
When the subject turned to the upcoming Democratic debates, Meyers brought up how hard it must be for O’Rourke to differentiate himself from the 20+ candidates who are currently running. He asked the former El Paso Congressman if he missed how easy it was to distinguish himself from Cruz. Here’s what O’Rourke said:
“Where is Ted Cruz when you need him?” O’Rourke quips.

“Very rarely uttered and yet here we are,” Meyers joked in response.
Watch that segment from the interview below:
Sen. Cruz caught wind of Beto’s quip, and one-upped him in a big way:
