NBC comedy show “Saturday Night Live” mocked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’s campaign and the candidate himself following his Iowa caucus win. “SNL” cast member Taran Killam played the GOP nominee hopeful.

Killam as Cruz claimed he was an “unconventional candidate.”

“I didn’t get where I am today because I was born wealthy or handsome or charismatic or nice,” Killam said. “I am not cool or likable or even fine.”

He went on, with other jokes about Cruz’s appearance.

“In other words, I have overcome perhaps the biggest political liability of all time — being Ted Cruz,” Killam said.

Killam argued as Cruz that “isn’t it time for a President whose just a nasty, little weasel?”
