Portraying the GOP presidential candidate, Taran Killam said he won the Iowa Caucus thanks to endorsements from "strong conservatives" such as Glenn Beck and "God Almighty."
"Now I'll admit; I'm an unconventional candidate," Killam said as Cruz. "I'm not like other politicians. I didn't get where I am today because I was born wealthy or handsome or charismatic or nice. I am not cool or likable or even fine. I'm not young and hip. I am not off the chain. I'm not energetic and healthy. Physically, I'm not doing well at all. From the side, I look like a Far Side cartoon."
"In other words, I have overcome perhaps the greatest political liability of all time — being Ted Cruz," he continued. "Mine is a story of triumph over adversary, like FDR and his wheelchair. But instead of a wheelchair, it's my personality and face."
Cruz's character said his success stems from his family and sense of humor.
"What did Donald Trump do when he lost Iowa? He threw a 'Trumper-tantrum,'" he said.
He also said he's a "sneaky little stinker."
