Video: Ted Cruz gets punked by protestor, called a ‘fish monster’

It’s been a rough few days for Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz ahead of the important Indiana Primary on Tuesday. Cruz is trailing rival Donald Trump and has been desperately trying to find his footing and gain momentum in the polls.

Unfortunately, while he is trying to reason with voters, he has been getting slammed by protesters.

We saw Cruz go up to a group of Donald Trump supporters earlier this week, but he was unable to get his message through. On Tuesday, another protester punked Ted Cruz with the most textbook fake handshake of all-time.

If that wasn’t enough, the prankster finished off by telling Cruz that he looks like a “fish monster.”

Credit for originality, but it is sad that this is where the presidential election has gone. Rather than focusing on issues, the candidates and even voters have resorted to childish tactics and insults.

Let’s hope things get better in time for the general election.
