“The Daily Show With Trevor Noah” fact-checked Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) claim that he’s uniting the Republican Party on Thursday night’s episode, calling the freshman senator the “toilet plunger of the Republican Party.”

After his victory in the Wisconsin Republican primary, Cruz said his campaign is “uniting the Republican Party.”

“Uhhh, that’s not true,” Noah said. “First of all, you’re not winning. You’re trying to catch up to Trump, who is winning. Second of all, you are not uniting the Republican Party. The Republican Party is uniting against Trump. You just happen to be the other guy! you’re basically the toilet plunger of the Republican Party. That’s all you are because no one wants to use a plunger, but they have to to get the turd out of the way.”
