Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is finally getting his one-on-one debate Donald Trump.
To mark the worst fake holiday of the year, Cruz’s campaign tweeted out a video titled “Donald Trump Accepts Cruz’s Debate Invitation.” The senator has for months challenged him to a “mano-a-mano” contest.
The bit opens with Cruz telling Trump he would debate him “anytime” before cutting to the frontrunner griping out they’ve already had 11 presidential debates and “we’re going to go on forever with these debates” before transitioning into Rick Astley’s 1987 one-hit wonder “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
It was an attempted “Rickroll,” the bait-and-switch video meme.
