In case you hadn't heard, former President Bill Clinton has been on a tour around the country to promote his new co-authored novel, The President is Missing.

But Clinton's uncomfortable media interviews have drawn more attention than the book itself, with journalists eager to get the former president's input on his past relationship with Monica Lewinski and present feelings on the #MeToo movement.

A number of cringeworthy comments made by Clinton hit the newswires during the tour, most notably when he admitted that he never privately apologized to Lewinksy, and that such an apology wasn't owed to the former White House intern with whom he had an affair 20 years ago.

The backlash even prompted Stephen Colbert to later grant Clinton a "do-over" in answering the question in a later interview.

So, what did Cruz have to say?

Speaking at the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority luncheon on Thursday, Cruz discussed the federal legislative victories made by the GOP since President Trump has been in office.

He said that the "biggest unfinished promise Republicans have" is the full repeal of Obamacare, adding, "That was one of the things that led Bill Clinton to describe Obamacare as 'the craziest thing in the world.'"

But Cruz didn't stop there. He drew laughter when he told the crowd of Clinton, "By the way, his recent media tour is going well. We might actually want to pay Hillary to go on one...If we could get Hillary to go to swing states between now and November, perhaps every day, that would be really, really good. Because there might be some voters left that she hasn't insulted yet."
