We mentioned a couple of days ago — in the context of Senator Ted Cruz’s incoherent misunderstanding of superhero movies — that his all-time favorite film is The Princess Bride. In fact, Cruz expressed outrage when the cast of Princess Bride reunited for a reading of the script to support the Democratic party.
“Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man killed my father. Every Princess Bride fan who wants to see that perfect movie preserved from Hollywood politics makes it now.” pic.twitter.com/mbUs4y6Ro0— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 5, 2020
Meanwhile, the star of Princess Bride has since weighed in on Cruz’s garbled superhero theory:
.@tedcruz How does it feel to know that not only the entire cast and crew of your favorite movie The Princess Bride, but almost the whole entertainment industry, have nothing but rabid contempt for you? #inconceivable? I think not, you miserable ROUS. https://t.co/SqGxk0hK0Y— Cary Elwes (@Cary_Elwes) February 3, 2021
You’d think that’d be the burn this post was written to introduce. Nope. Because Ted Cruz is so dumb that he actually responded to Cary Elwes, believing that he was going to somehow win this round of Twitter dunks:
Reader: He did not win this round.
