Ted Cruz Says All of the Simpsons Are Republicans Except Lisa

Chevy Chase kicked during road rage incident near Mario Cuomo Bridge

"The Democrats are the party of Lisa Simpson and Republicans are happily the party of Homer, Bart, Maggie and Marge", Cruz said of the classic animated family from The Simpsons.

Sen. Ted Cruz kicked off his appearance at CPAC today by declaring that, when it comes to protecting gun rights, the Republican Party is proudly the party of Homer Simpson.

The Simpsons creator Al Jean saw tweets about Cruz's remarks and made a decision to call the senator out for misrepresenting the family's political ideals - specifically those of baby Maggie.

In April 2016, Good Morning America shared a video of Cruz doing impressions of Lisa, Homer and others from the show. "If I didn't have this gun, the king of England could just walk in here anytime he wants and start shoving you around".

"I think Ted's the one who could use a pacifier in his mouth", he said, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Jean followed up that insult by quipping: "The way things are going even Mr. Burns is thinking of becoming a Democrat". The rest of the internet was equally down (with homework) on Cruz.

Domenech joked at one point whether Cuomo had tweeted in the past five minutes Cruz was afraid to come on "New Day" and talk about gun rights.

Shoots a basketball to get it off the roof. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch were among the participants and they took sharp-edged questions that called for gun control and blasted the NRA.
