“A man who looks suspiciously like Ted Cruz had a heated exchange with an airline employee, and then after the airline employee, a police officer,” Kimmel explained on Monday night.
In the video, a visibly upset Cruz can be seen speaking to airport staff and then the police.
Airport police are called to deal with Ted Cruz after he caused a ruckus at the Bozeman Montana airport when he missed the check-in window for his flight. A witness says he actually said, \u201cDo you know who I am?\u201d. No word yet on whether he was headed to Cancun.pic.twitter.com/43jBIVDR6N
Kimmel went on to then mention that Cruz should “stay out of airports,” referring to the infamous Cancun incident.
Although the audio is blocked out of the video showing Cruz's fit, Kimmel joked that he had hired experts to give a “pretty good approximation of what Cancun Karen was complaining about.”
The subtitles narrating Cruz's actions then read that the politician was stopped for having a bag that was “oozing," to which he responded by saying, “Of course, it’s oozing — I’m oozing!”
He then shared why this story was "especially funny."
Kimmel then went on to share Cruz's recent absurd claim: “Almost without exception, every time I’m on an airplane, either the captain or a flight attendant will come up to me, will hug me and say, ‘Thank you for fighting for us.’”
“And then immediately throw up,” Kimmel said. “There’s no way he’s getting spontaneously hugged. Can you imagine hugging Ted Cruz? Donald Trump hugs Eric more than flight attendants hug Ted Cruz.”
