Dennis Rodman Tells Ted Cruz, Trump Will 'Fire' His 'Ass' Too
February 27, 2016

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.
