Ron Perlman Wants to Physically Fight Ted Cruz

I want to like Ron Perlman because he was Deathstroke the Terminator (AKA Slade) on Teen Titans as well as Hellboy in, well, Hellboy, but he makes it so hard. He’s one of those Democrats who is always going on about how much he likes Bernie Sanders and all of his ideas but won’t vote for him for some nebulous reason and instead supports whatever candidate will give Ron Perlman the biggest tax cuts without getting him kicked out of his brunch group.

If I didn’t know better, I’d think Ron was a plant that only exists to make Republicans look good. He got into a fight on Twitter with Matt Gaetz, who is himself not someone most people would consider an intellectual heavyweight, and managed to look like he didn’t know what he was talking about, even though Gaetz started tweeting at Perlman by saying the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.

At this point, all Ron Perlman really had to say to win the exchange was nothing because Gaetz just exposed himself as someone who doesn’t know what acting is. But he didn’t say nothing, he accused Gaetz of only being able to win a gerrymandered district, which is something you’d think is true because he thinks people on TV agree with the characters they play but is very probably not the case.

Most people would quit here in shame, but Perlman decided to swing for the fences and call Jim Jordan ugly to change the topic.

Seems uncalled for, but it got the attention of Ted Cruz, the least likable person in the Senate, who offered to pay $10,000 to watch Perlman and Jordan wrestle.

If you told me a Senator was paying men to wrestle, I’d have guessed Lindsey Graham.

Cruz did kind of save Perlman from looking totally stupid by being the kind of greasy douchebag everyone knows Ted Cruz is, but things just devolved into bullshit posturing.

There’s really no winners here.
