Ted Cruz might have been debating in Florida, but President Obama scored the winning shot on Ted Cruz during his toast at tonight's state dinner in honor of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

During his toast, which was ripe with humor, Obama outlined that both the U.S. and Canada offered extraordinary opportunities for its citizens. Want proof? Obama said just look toward the 2016 Republican presidential contest.

"We see this in our current presidential campaign. Where else could a boy born in Calgary run for president of the United States?" Obama asked in an allusion to Cruz whose eligibility to run for the White House has been called into question by Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

Right for the heart, President Obama. Straight and true.
