Dennis Rodman Tells Ted Cruz, Trump Will 'Fire' His 'Ass' Too

Dennis Rodman appeared on Celebrity Apprentice and had some unkind words for Ted Cruz about it.
Dennis Rodman Tells Ted Cruz, Trump Will 'Fire' His 'Ass' Too

After the Chris Christie endorsement knocked Marco Rubio's debate performance off the front pages Friday, ex-NBA star and a frequent flier to North Korea, Dennis Rodman threw his earrings in the ring for Trump and smacked Ted Cruz around via Twitter.

This was a response to Thursday's debate night when Cruz brought up the rebound king.

Cruz mentioned the celebrity former basketball player during the debate Thursday night in Houston while drawing a contrast between himself and Trump on the issue of immigration.

Cruz argued that "Donald funded the Gang of Eight" — a reference to lawmakers who pushed the Senate immigration bill in 2013 reviled by those on the right.

"In 2013, when I was leading the fight against the Gang of Eight amnesty bill, where was Donald? He was firing Dennis Rodman on 'Celebrity Apprentice,' " Cruz said.

And I'm certain this campaign season will only get weirder.
